The Frost Teachers, Parents and Students are amazing at Frost. We recently moved to East Brunswick and it was a bit of a shock at first but the entire Frost Family made the kids feel welcomed. Great School!!

We recently moved to East Brunswick from an adjoining town. We knew that East Brunswick had great schools and very good teachers, but when my 2 kids started going to Frost school, the difference was easily noticeable. My kids got adjusted quickly to the Frost school staff and other kids. They told the method, the approach and techniques used by teachers helped them to grasp the knowledge easily. We are happy that we moved to East Brunswick. They have good playground as well, which helps the kids to freshen up and socialize with classmates and other students. Thanks to the teachers, principal and staff at Frost Elementary.

Frost School is amazing. Only complaint is that they should really help us transition into middle school, I can't explain how big the shock was when i began middle school. The teachers are AMAZING, IT IS THE BEST SCHOOL! Your child will have lots of fun here. I really wish I was still there. In fifth grade you get to do rockets, you get to have a fifth grade picnic and oh man the trips are so fun. Frost is an amazing school you will remember as a great experience all your life.

Just relocated from the West. Frost school provides an educational nurturing environment. The teachers clearly love what they do and care about the kids.

I love Frost school. I have 2 children there and they are doing great . the principal goes above and beyond what most principals do. I was a teacher for 10 years. It says something about a principal who taught in that school( and is remembered fondly by now college students). My children have the greatest teachers and they love school!

I have two children at this school. One hates school, puts in little effort in his school work, and gets about 60% of his test questions right, in most subjects. The other works very hard, always asks for extra help with anything he doesn't understand, and studies for his tests. He gets 80-90% of his test questions correct.. The funny thing is, the both get about the same grades on their report cards. Frost School gives out As and Bs regardless of performance or effort to protect their statistics. my struggling son scored in the 9th percentile for reading one year on his ASK the same year he got a B in reading!

We use to think that it was a great school system but not anymore! The staff is unprofessional and nasty. Problems stem from incompetent staff, cuts in staff, cuts in funding and a big problem is ten yr. Not a great school anymore!!!!!

The education that the students at Frost School receive is exceptional. There is a true understanding of student's individual differences. The teachers facilitate many clubs such as the writing club, courtyard club, and math club. The parents are truly partners at Frost. All are welcome and a climate of respect and caring is evident.

Frost is truly an outstanding school. My son has been there since first grade, and they have always shown an interest in his academics and well-being. The staff at Frost is unprecedented.

The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

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.
