Great Princpal! Really woking hard in improving this school. "Some" teachers and office staff should work on keeping students information cofidential and pratice more on being polite to parents. Not all parents are rude and unprofessional.

Robert Frost most recently experienced a drop in population due to hurricane Ike. The school has an enrollment of about 446 students and teaching staff of 30. Although it's rating has dropped drastically it's heart is still beating. I think with recent changes such as Apollo 20 it will survive!
