Absolutely average, it's ok as long as school doesn't give you suicidal thoughts. If it does then don't go here, instead go to someplace better. If you miss too many days work piles up way to fast. They also need some bathrooms for transgender students, if they even have one I haven't seen it. Would not recommend. This school is average if not below average. Could barely even stand a year. The teachers here care, but give too much homework. This school is a great example to show that our education system needs improvement.

Frontier High School is your typical suburban public school. Frontier doesn't stand out in any real big way except for through certain sports. As a student I wish that we had more freedoms but due to the nature of incoming freshman we do not. When i was a freshman and sophmore I had nothing but pleasent experiences as well as prior to my high school years throughout the district. Hopefully as the administration improves throughout the district things will go back to normal.
Frontier is a very friendly school where students meet life long friends. Students are able to connect to teachers so they can better understand the topics at hand. Frontier offers many sports teams along with clubs.
