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 is a smaller school which is both a blessing and a curse. Having less students allow for the teachers and staff to get to now their students well and work with them to better their grades and school experience. On the other hand the schools lacks diversity with the majority of the students being from mid to upper class white families. Frontier treats all students equally and doesn't tolerate any bulling and actively seeks to improve the schooling experience for its students and has staff that genuinely care about their students both in and out of the classroom. Frontier challenges their students to do their best and in comparison to other schools in the area generally has harder course work and higher expectations. This kind of challenge isn't for everyone of course but if you want to graduate and feel prepared for whatever it is you do next Frontier will definitely do that for you if you are willing to put in the effort. Over all I think Frontier is an amazing school.
