Frontier School of Excellence - Upper Reviews

The teachers are there to help you, but the adminstration are very strict and have favorites.
They order the food. So you get what they order. Most kids don't eat half of the food.
There is a music class and a art class. These teachers aren't treated with as much respect. Administration doesn't think fine arts are as important as math, or science.

There are barely any clubs. There is cheer, basketball, Student council, and two or one more group.

There isn't good communication between teachers and adminstration.

A good thing. They have 3 foreign language classes and one is turkish. You would not find another turkish class in any other school.

Good thing. Mrs. Bates Junior English class helpes a lot. Her teaching style is annoying, but in the end. She was amazing. Most Alumni still use what she taught in their college essays. I know I do.

Frontier School of Excellence is an okay school, but it really needs improvement! It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay.
I liked the teachers. I would change the food, amounts of clubs, the sports fiances, resources, and parental involvement. Frontier is a college readiness school and they focus on that. Their food is delivered and has no taste; some kids just won't eat breakfast or lunch. There is one major club; it's College Readiness Leadership Program or CRLP. They have chess club and art club, but they are during school hours. CRLP is the only club after school. We need more clubs to help give a little bit of diversity with the students. The sports has to have multiple fundraisers for new uniforms and better sports supplies. Our school uses a lot of money on academics. It's like playing a sport isn't going to give children scholarships to go to college. We don't have that many resources. Frontier is trying to get parental involvement, but it's not working. They have muffins for moms and donuts for dads, but that's all.
