5th Annual Multicultural Festival
On December 7th, hundreds of visitors came out to enjoy music, food, and dances from all over the world at Frontier Schools’ 5th Annual Multicultural Festival.
This district-wide event offered a feast of culinary delights from more than 40 country booths and student performances including– FSE’s school concert band, a Turkish folk dance, a Quinceaera dance, a Somalian fashion show, Hip-hop dances, German, Korean, and French songs, Hispanic songs and dances, and so much more!
The enthusiasm of the participants and crowd was spectacular as they celebrated and connected with our diverse student body – representing more than 10 countries.
The festival clearly established a community atmosphere, encouraging everyone to learn from each other while sharing traditions and cultures.
While the Festival was held all in one evening, preparing and getting ready for the hundreds of students, families, and community members took months of planning. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us!
Frontier Schools would also like to thank our students and staff for their dedication,
commitment, and involvement in this year’s 5th Annual Multicultural Festival.

Boys Scouts of America Visit FSE
With our diverse student body, home visits 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.
Frontier STEM High School had a "Giving Wall" that contributed to the adopted families.
A HUGE thank you to our amazing and generous donors:

FSHS State of the Art Innovation Lab!
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.
