I think it is one of the best schools I have ever went to. They have a wide choice of extra curricular activities that you can do. From cooking to robots, yearbook to sports. So many choices. You will not be disappointed! For teacher's are also very good with the students. They do hands on work and always find a way to make it interesting. At lunch you have about five choices so you will always find something you like. You can join band and orchestra if you are in 7th grade after that you can not. If you are just starting an instrument and your in 7th grade then you can also join band and orchestra. Choir is open to anybody of any grade at any time. The school does have good discipline. If it's talking constantly then you processed. All that is, is you fill out a piece of paper and then you come back in class. If you won't stop after two times of that the you get detention. For detention you can get after school, or lunch detention. Over all it is a wonderful school. The teacher will push you till you are working at the best of your ablates. You will not be disappointed if you child(children) go there.
The staff at Frontier JH is highly educated and very caring of all students. We try to make the environment inviting yet strive to make our classes rigorous and worth while.
Well, FJH isnt the greatest school but i do have fun while learning. This school is full of spirit. There is a lot of disrespect from your peers that come along with going to this school though because a lot of the kids there a rude. overall, i would recomend it, but you have to be tough when it comes to the kids that go there.
I am currently an 8th grader at this school & the only reasons (litteraly ONLY) you should even try to rough this school out is if your dedicated to band or choir. I'm a choir student and Mrs. Huss is FANTASTIC. I've also met MR. Armstrong (band) and he is very funny but expects alot sometimes. The honors teachers are also very nice (Gapinski & Eliff) and make things fun, but also challenging. The displine program at this school is RIDICULOUS make your day is the most irrational thing ever invented. if you misbehave you go to steps one through three with no consequence but step four requires a conference. People actually try ro get on steps because it really is a joke. The hallways are also VERY rough.there are too many students and not enough staff out there to monitor. SO basically if you are going to enroll, don't.
I am a student currently attending Fronteir. I'd swear, but that's a little unappropiate. See I am learning so little I can't even spell stuff rite. This school is dreadful. There are some teachers who try to make the school fun, but all their attempts are in vein. 5% of the students that attend this school can say they enjoy it. I believe most of the teachers expectaions are too high. And the 'steps' program doesn't help the disipline probelms. I have friends that TRY to get on steps, because it's a joke. Anyway this school is pretty F-ed up. I Hate It.
i think that fronter jr. high is an OK school only because the teachers expect so much sometimes from their students & i think it is wrong. also there are some wonderful teachers too [Diana Mann & Michael Fowler, Mrs.Schrier, they are wonderful]
I love that they allow the 7th graders go to school one day earlier than the 8th and 9th graders. I wish they would have had that when I was in jr high and trying to navigate the halls, search for classrooms all while deseperately trying to avoid the bigger kids. There are way too many kids! Hallways are dangerous at this point. The principal really seems to want parents and students to feel comfortable in his school. Unfortunately, whenever I have needed assistance in the office, the same cannot be said there. Also, in more than one class my child has been pushed along, receiving very good grades for work even she said was mediocre (and can be proven when looking at the Rubric). There are lots of afterschool clubs for the kids. Jr High is rough for everyone, at least this principal is trying his best to make it easier on everyone.
This school is one of the best junior highs in the Bethel School District. The choir program is excellent; they've won 'Best of the Northwest' three years in a row now. Even the Math teachers make math fun and entertaining, and Bethel's math has greatly gone down in the past years. Frontier would be the ideal choice for your child.
One of my concerns is that everytime I go Frontier Jr. High I see so many of the students in the main office work like assist. My question is why are these kids not in class learning. Those office workers are paid to work in the office. The kids are there to get an education not to assist in office functions that the office staff is hired to do.
My daughter has be going to this school for will be three years at the end of this school year, if we keep her at this school.I have just received info of a tongue piercing sometime during the school day. I understand that the staff cannot watch all of the students all of the time. So with disgust I am writting this note. I can't help wondering what else is going on. The school there is bullying and harrasment. I have had other children attend this school and nothing has changed through the years. I really believe there needs to be more security in the halls maybe cameras. I do not believe this school is by itself in this type of situation.
Fantastic admin section, teachers who really care and keep in touch with the parents, providing the parents do their part. Safe school.
Two of my daughters attended this school. They suffered harrassment and physical abuse from fellow students so severe that it lead to a restraining order againist one of the students. My honor student had food thrown at her,her books knocked from her hands,and was spit on. This happened on a daily basis. The principal ,assistant principal and the staff continually ignored my concerns and in the end my girls left public school for home school. As for classroom control,it is in the hands of the students at this school. The one time I volunteered to teach a craft, the kids spent the period dancing to the boom box,throwing papers and sticking each other with the sewing needles I had supplied. All the while the 'teacher' sat idle,never saying a word. The one good thing I can say about this school is that they do have an awesome choir and band program. Both of those teachers are outstanding.
I thought it was a great school,i liked the sports they had good coaches.overall the school was great the teachers were nice and the people there are great and some of my friends still go there.
