Robert Frost School4

I moved to Robert Frost in the middle of the 3rd grade. Most of the students and my teachers made me feel welcome. It could use a little more improving on parent involvement with the students but other than that it was great
Robert Frost is a great school the principal and faculty are great to work with our children and there needs. As a parent I always feel welcome and feel like the principle's and faculty's best interest is for the students they are always willing to listen to parents comments and try to implement the things that we would like to see at our school. As to the comment below concerning parent involvement alot more parents are having to leave the home and go to work and even with that as a factor we have many parents helping in classrooms and helping with school activities. Ihave had students at Frost for 10 years now and I still think frost is the BEST!!!! There is always room for improvement no matter what school you attend or where you live. But as parents your voices can be heard.
Things keep getting worse at Frost by the year. Many fine families have reached their limit with frustration and are looking for other options. Even the fantastic new principal is too little too late. Unfortunately there aren't many other options for some of us, and the new charter school in our city has a huge waiting list already.
Frost over-emphasizes behavior management while disregarding academic encouragement. Qualified arts do not exist and sports are discouraged and prohibited. There are many conscientous teachers, but many resent parent suggestions on academia. Parent involvement is discouraged by word and deed. Frost has had declining standardized test scores for 3 years in a row and did not make AYP the past 2 years, although the principal tells parents that it did. There is an increased community sentiment against the parent-unfriendly environment. This is documented in the parent volunteer hours dropping by as much as 75% each year for the past 4 years.
