Home Visits

Home visits continue to go strong at Frontier Schools. Teachers and school staff have visited approximately 702 students in 459 home visits since the start of the 2019-20 school year.


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.

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.
