I've been working here a year now and it's a great school. Staff is all friendly and understanding. Want what's best for the students. Organized.

My kids have been at Frontier for half a year and I am very pleased with it. My older child always struggled with reading and for the first time he feels successful. He was tested at the beginning of the year and placed in a small reading group in the classroom with a specialist. This worked out great ...  Read more

Our grandsons came to Colorado Springs from Tucson where they had attended private schools. The family researched public schools and decided to locate in the Frontier Elementary school boundaries. The teachers recognized that the boys were well educated and everyone at Frontier and District 20 has ...  Read more

My child went to Frontier Elementary School and I would suggest parents to look elsewhere. Most of the teachers were great but the administration lacked in professionalism and were not friendly. Yes, they did know the students names, but that alone does not make up a good educational support system. ...  Read more

My child only attended this school for a short time we left due to the principal at the school. The administration at this school is dangerously unprofessional and unsafe.

My children love this school! The teacher's are excellent and care about their students. Parent involvement could be better.

Volunteering at the school, I saw the surprising percentage of parents who do not communicate with teachers by email or scheduled conference... or at all, I guess. I suspect that those parents are ...  Read more

wow, I am somewhat surprised by some of the reviews. I had a child in preschool here with an IEP for a year and a half. We loved her teachers and she progressed very quickly to achieve all her goals and no longer needs an IEP. My older child has struggled with reading one year and math another year. ...  Read more

Although many of the teachers here are fabulous, it doesn't make up for the Administrations lack of leadership! With such a lack of professional focus, the teachers (and students) here are constantly leaving for other schools and even other districts. It's important that an administrator looks out ...  Read more

After 5 years, I moved my daughter to another district altogether, and the results have been amazing. Her new school identified and addressed the areas she was weak in, and her confidence and achievement have improved dramatically (in just 4 months). She had spent her entire career at Frontier as ...  Read more
