Frontier Central School District Reviews

The staff for the most part are the nicest, most genuine people. While I sometimes felt annoyed or overwhelmed by what was expected of me, they were (mostly) always there to help. Very intelligent and caring people work at Frontier, I am lucky to grow up there. If I were to change anything I wish the well behaved students had more free power, it seemed like if something went wrong, the whole school would be punished, and that's not fair to the students who behave as they should.

Wonderful school district! Parents are highly involved. One elementary school is a blue ribbon school. Teachers are wonderful, very dedicated to the children.
I went to Frontier for a little over two years. While the technology is great, updated, and gives you easy access to do projects, and assignments, it does not make up for what the school is lacking. It lacks in diversity as there are rarely any students from any race but white, and it really needs to change its menu. The food is really quite questionable. While it is a great school education wise, with great teachers, and great materials to use for education, it certainly lacks in being a united community. As a new student I found it very difficult to make friends, and found that if the students had been nicer, and less self-centered, it would've made the school absolutely perfect despite its horrible food, and despite its lack of both diversity, and a big enough gym.
