I am currently a 6th grade student at frontier, and I have had a lot of bad experiences since the current principal, Mrs. Connely, arrived. The assistant principal is amazing, and always helps out with events such as the Student Council Heroes Luncheon. On the other hand, you have the principal, who ...  Read more

This school is horrible if you are from out of state. The assistant principle is wonderful and very helpful; however, the teacher believes differently. If kids work out issues isn't that a good thing? Not in this teachers eyes. Now she is scrutinizing my child and listening to the children that are ...  Read more

We are the grandparents of two Frontier Elementary students and could not be more pleased with the school. The principal Rae Conelley is tuned into the needs of the school and the staff is very friendly. Any day that we can walk onto the Frontier School campus is a good day for there is magic in those ...  Read more

I had my daughter at an exclusive private school and paid a fortune in tuition for kindergarden. She was so stress out ...  Read more

As a parent, I have seen Frontier decline. The administration is horrible. They don't care about their teachers and all of the great teachers left to work at another school. It used to be the best school in the district and now it is the worst!

I graduated from Frontier fairly recently after going there since kindergarten and I had a pretty positive experience.

I absolutely LOVED the ...  Read more

If I were rating the teachers or the parents or anything else, the rating would be much higher, but since I am writing this review to reflect on the TERRIBLE principal, I give this school ONE star, but only because it isn't an option to give it zero or negative stars. This woman creates a toxic environment ...  Read more

I must say i found it interesting that 38 positive messages about Frontier were posted May 12-20, 2010. I find that suspicious. Our daughter seems to enjoy Frontier, however, despite her high academic abilities, she always seems to be falling behind since enrolled here. Our attention is not brought ...  Read more

I was shocked to read the previous reviews of this school and principal, as I have had nothing but positive experiences since my child transferred to this school. Ms. Connelly, the principal, is an amazing leader and the eighth grade team of teachers, fantastic. She is proactive and does not tolerate ...  Read more
