Frontier Charter Academy Reviews

This was a great school, but already it seems to have its best days behind it. Test scores are dropping, achievements are dwindling, the exceptional experienced staff is leaving. Hard to know what's to blame: they grew significantly in the last few years, they have mediocre facilities, and they switched to a 4-day school week for the elementary kids, which can't possibly be good. I'm glad my kids had outgrown the elementary before they made that choice. The 4-day at the secondary was hard enough for my daughters; what a terrible way to teach the importance of a strong work ethic! Another sign: their graduating classes typically have significantly lower scholarship dollar totals then other similar schools. Our youngest is done this year - and none too soon! Wouldn't choose it again.

Situated in the dismal educational hole that is Greeley District 6, Frontier's education is second to none. There are a decent amount of sports and many extracurricular, and most of the teachers genuinely care about helping the students. The small school environment gives lots of one-on-one time with teachers and the ability to form close relationships with many of your peers, but can at times feel claustrophobic and judgmental. Overall, Frontier is one of the best high schools in Greeley.
Frontier Academy prepared me for college by providing excellent academics and teachers. I started at Frontier in the seventh grade, coming straight from home school. I felt very behind in my classes and became incredibly stressed with homework and tests. Each teacher took time to help me adjust to the new learning environment and helped me succeed. I went from barely passing tests to graduating with honors and a 4.2 GPA. I am still friends with a large majority of my teachers and can ask them for advice/recommendations whenever I need.
