I went to Frost in 7th grade, and I personally think its a fantastic school! Its clean, the teachers are great, they have a nice range of electives, and for the time I was there, not once had I ever seen even a glance of bullying. I would say the average class size was 30-35 students per teacher, but the teachers still try to keep up good student relationships (and did a pretty good job of it). I was in the "GT program" or whatever they are calling it these days, and they were pretty strict about grades. Overall I love the school and only wish I could've stayed there longer!

This school looks great, I may be relocating to this area and my daughter will be entering 4th grade. Can anyone tell me which elementary schools would transfer into Frost Middle School so that I situate myself in the right area for great education for my child? Thanks for your assistance!

My twins have attended Frost for the last two years, and are now graduating to Woodson High School. Frost is an amazing place -- the highest quality teachers, very good physical facility, solid curriculum and even incorporates art, music and drama (no dance) into it's electives. The administration is super -- I can't say enough about this school -- am a bit afraid to move on because how can Woodson beat this?

If you are moving to Northern Virginia and are looking for a great school. The seach stops here!!! Frost is fantastic. We are a military family and have been in and out of lots of schools and not one compares with Frost. Its the best. We are buying a house and staying here so our kids can stay in this school system. Frost feeds into Woodson High School which is supposed to be awsome too! I can't say enough about this school!!

My son attended Rober Frost Middle School from 2004-2006 and all I never had any real complaints. The teachers are very good with kids and understanding that sometimes family matters interfere with school. My husband and I lost a baby durring his school time and it was very difficult for us, but the staff was always there for us, the teachers more than willing to help after school and on the weekends. It truely is a great school.
