My son is currently a student at The High Frontier. I would like to connect with other parents of HF students! I have started a Facebook group: High Frontier Parents Group

The teachers at the school are generally good teachers, however the learning is constantly interupted by assaultive students who need to be restrained and group therapy session which take priority over school, meals, activities and everything else. When my group was able to make it to the class room, the teachers were helpful though

My daughter was tested for learning disabilities when she was a freshman. No one had tested her previously despite our complaining about her problems with reading. We learned that she had significant problems and that her reading level was at 4th grade. She also had ADHD, and dyslexia. When she went to HF her reading level within one school yr went from 4th grade to 12.8 grade. Additionally she has improved her attitude, her self esteem, and our family relationship. We are still working on maturity issues but we're getting there. We had tried other programs and problems had worsened. HF actually showed us progress and hope. she

Our daughter is currently at High Frontier and I have to agree that her life is now headed in the right direction. She has been able to catch up academically in a short time and work on her problems at the same time. No, it is not a Harvard-level education, but neither was the public high school she was attending (or skipping) before. But before she went to HF, we were looking at her dropping out or ending up at jail. The teachers and admin have been very supportive and understanding of where she was and where she is now. Also, the Positive Peer Culture program has worked extremely well for her and us as well. We are thankful everyday that HF was an option for us and that she is now on her way to gaining her life back.

High Frontier School changed my Son's life into a solid POSITIVE versus where he was headed, down a negative road. The Administration, Principal, and Faculty were able to inspire my Son to rediscover his desire to excel in academics and life. High Frontier is a wonderful school for 'lost' teens to reconnect with their potential, without the pressures of outside influences. I now have great hope for my Son to succeed in his life on his own! As a Parent, giving your child the tools to cope with all the problems in the world can be difficult. When a teen is confronted with trauma or dramatic change in their life not by choice, High Frontier can help reconnect the Student. The school is not perfect, then again the Students they get are in need of help. Effective help they do not receive outside or at home.

This school is outrageous. The teachers are incompetent and offer little help to the students. It's impossible to teach 6 grade levels at once and is the worst environment for anyone with learning disabilities.

I attended the High Frontier School for ten months this past year and found the school very accommodating and willing to create a curriculum best suited to my academic needs. However, the overall quality of the education failed to meet my needs as an intellectual. The teachers hand you a textbook and a list of assignments, you answer a few questions, and you make a 100. It's too easy, and it's based upon one's ability to read a paragraph in a textbook and copy the information onto a sheet of notebook paper. I barely actually learned anything. However, I do want to put in a good word my english teachers, Mrs. Daniel and Mr. Charles Stair. Their classes provided me with an opportunity to truly improve my writing skills. -Carol L.

My daughter attended High Frontier High School the spring of 2006 and fall 2006 through Sept. 28th, at which time I pulled her from the program due to significant issues with the residential treatment facility. I found the High School to be, for the most part, very accommodating to the level of education my daughter required. I was very pleased with the teachers who helped her through her 10 months at the facility and tried to keep the level of education high enough intellectually to keep her interested. I thought there were two drawbacks. One understandable and the other not. The first - no academically challenging labs offered for science courses. The second - very little physical activity incorporated into the school program. First is understandable, given the environment of the facility. However, I would think physical exercise would be therapeutic and highly encouraged. Would write more but out of space.

My daughter currently attends High Frontier High School and we are extremely pleased with the self-paced curriculum, the focus on individual needs, and the quality of the teachers and the principal. We feel that it suits our daughter's current needs academically and emotionally.

I went to the High Frontier. The High Frontier had an excellent way of helping me to understand details that I could not, on my own figure out. They were very patient, when I needed help they helped me but did not baby me. I learned a great deal from the High Frontier, all though I did not apply myself as much I could have I was always advised to do my best and give it my all. The High Frontier gives so much emotional and acedemic support, my parents were always notified of my success and or failure.
