I recently started attending Frontier since the building it moved to is closer to my home. Frontier is so mundane its boring, and some of the teachers are just stupid. they need to have better educated teachers. The kids are sexist, I'm a guy, but the way some of these guys disrespect the girls is just sad. Some staff are very nice well others are just to strict and should not have become educators if they did not know how to handle the students. The work seems to be a grade or two back, it feels more like a middle school then it does a highschool. I did not know it was gender separated until I attended the school, which I think is just stupid. On the upside the library is nicely equipped, there are good books in mostly every class. The internet is fast and the principle is excellent, Dr. Abed should be placed in a better school. it's a good school for non English speakers and well that's it. I would not send my kid here if I was a parent hopefully I am able to leave next semester.

The school's main administration (the District owner of this school and its sister schools) treat it like a business instead of an educational institution. There are a lot of new comers in the school, so it is a very straight forward school. There are only 4 electives in this school and cannot be chosen by the student. These are: Gym/Health (The school doesnt even have its own gym), Art, Technology (Computers), and the only foreign language class; Arabic. The school is housed in a historic building. There are many afterschool clubs that can be joined, and offers tutoring (free). Personally, I think this school could use some MAJOR improvements. But if you need an easy and straight school, Frontier is your choice!

Our school is very diverse and has a wonderful staff! We speak many different languages here and have many students who are new to the US. It is very challenging but very rewarding to help and teach these students!

I am a student who attends Frontier International Academy. Its not in good shape but the education I recieve there is excellent. The teachers are nice and the principal and vice principal rock. When I go there I feel like Im at home, but with a little touching up around here and there it will be perfect. If I were a parent I would sign up my child to attend there.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MME test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
