Additional Resources for Parents and Students


  • With schools closing across the nation, many education companies have stepped forward and provided free or discounted online learning resources for students and educators. Frontier students are expected to complete their work provided by Frontier teachers first and then they may go to these useful online learning websites.

Social Work Department

During this new virtual reality for all of us, we wanted to make sure parents had a way to ask questions, seek support, and request guidance for mental health and other community resources. Our Social Work Department is here for you!

Frontier Schools Using 3D Printers to Create Face Shields for Medical Personnel

In reaction to the shortage of protective wear for medical personnel because of the COVID-19 pandemic, a small team of teachers at Frontier Schools is doing their part to help.


Mr. Azat Ovezov, Director of Science Curriculum, Shukru Kilic, Engineering Teacher, and Islam Kamilov, Computer Teacher, are working tirelessly in their homes with the school’s 3D printers to print and assemble face shields to donate.


Each shield takes about four hours to make and only costs about $1.00 in materials. Currently, they have produced 60 masks. The team is working with local hospitals, such as Truman Medical Center & St. Luke’s Hospital to arrange a donation of the shields while they continue to manufacture more shields inside their homes.


Currently, engineering teachers are also in the process of printing face mask straps. This will help individuals in the Kansas City area who will be heading back to work in the next few weeks.

FSHS State of the Art Innovation Lab

Big picture

Frontier Schools’ is building a modern, state-of-the-art Innovation Lab attached to the Frontier STEM High School.


This project-based approach is an essential part of immersive STEM education; it makes the experience real for the students. They will be able to conceive a project, be it a product or prototype, and follow the production process from conception to physical

reality. Students will understand the technology that powers their creations; both the

hardware and the software. The goal is to build a strong, authentic knowledge-based theory to applied skills in STEM education, ensuring Frontier’s high school graduates will

be prepared to enter collegiate level science, technology, engineering and mathematics

programs with the skills to succeed on day one.
