Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade students whose parents chose virtual instruction will continue to learn virtually Monday through Friday.


This plan may be updated throughout the school year as a result of guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the local health department. We will continue to update our students and families promptly if any new, relevant information becomes available.

Virtual Home Visits

Virtual home visits are the 'new normal' for the 2020-21 school year at Frontier Schools – this won't slow us down! Teachers and school staff have virtually visited 440 students in 384 homes since the start of the 2020-21 school year.


With our diverse student body, home visits, whether virtual or in-person, are paramount in bridging cultural gaps that might exist. These visits also provide opportunities for staff to understand their students better by visiting them in their home environments. The goal is to foster a true partnership – with both students and their families.

School Supply Donation!

Shout out to our friends at Protiviti for the much needed donation of school supplies for our students. We are very thankful for their generous efforts to ensure our students are equipped for a successful school year! Students will be very excited when we hand out their supplies!

FSHS State of the Art Innovation Lab

Big picture

Frontier Schools’ is planning to build 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.


You can help now by giving to our campaign! To donate, click here!


Note: All donations are tax-deductible and a donation receipt will be provided.
