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.
Thus far, I have enjoyed my time at Frontier High School. It has provided me with various opportunities for involvement in the school, such as through International Club and National Honor Society. It has also provided me with some opportunities to take upper level courses, such as certain AP courses. Although, by attending this school, I feel as though some of my opportunities were limited. I have a great interest in psychology and in environmental science, and Frontier was not able to offer the AP level of either of those courses, both of whichever I would have loved to take. Nevertheless, although I was not able to take certain classes, the faculty and staff created a very comfortable atmosphere that made it very easy to learn and feel at home at school.
