First Day of In-Person Instruction

On Monday, September 21st, we welcomed back 110 new and current students in Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade to in-person instruction for the 2020-21 school year. The excitement was contagious and we are so excited to have some of our students back with us!

Parking Lot Asphalt Resurfacing Is Complete!

The FSI Elementary & Middle School parking lot project was completed on September 19th – just in time for the first day of in-person instruction for Pre-K through 1st grade students at FSI Elementary. The new lot has improved the aesthetics and safety of the school.

Virtual Parent Teacher Conferences

On Friday, October 2nd, Frontier Schools held virtual district-wide Parent Teacher Conferences. Students along with their parents met with teachers and staff on an individual basis to discuss student performance and ideas for improvement.

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 167 students in 113 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.

FSHS State of 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.
