As a student teacher at this school,I have learned a whole lot of valuable information on how to be an outstanding teacher. The teachers here get to know each student and their parents personally. They work hard with each student to ensure that they get the instruction they need to excel. The teachers also do an outstanding job teaching students the importance of respect, responsibility,and being a good citizen. Another great aspect of Frost is that they have small classes usually about 14 or less to a class. This allows for more one on one instruction with the teacher. The small size of Frost allows all students the opportunity to participate in any of their sports or extracurricular activities. The staff here is very caring and very professional.In the future I intend on moving into this district so that my children may attend this school.

I graduated in 1992 and was very educated in my studies. Frost has small class's so there is more teacher-student participation and one on one help. Frost allows students to get involved in extracurricular activities without trying out for the most part. Frost is highly regarded as a friendly, but yet serious school that is great for children who want to be taught and have fun all the same time.
