6th Annual Multicultural Festival

On December 13th, hundreds of visitors came out to enjoy music, food, and dances from all over the world at Frontier Schools’ 6th 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, 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 a diverse array of 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 6th Annual Multicultural Festival.

Nightmare Before Christmas Winter Formal

On December 6th, Frontier STEM High School held a Winter Formal themed, "The Nightmare Before Christmas". Over 70 tickets were purchased – the event provided students with various spooky and holiday themed stations throughout the evening, including a haunted hallway with special effects adding to the overall experience. Students had a great time feeling spooky and dancing the night away with their friends and fellow festive ghouls.

Plaza Book Fair Hosted by FSHS

On December 14th, 38 students and 5 staff members from Frontier STEM High School worked in shifts to host a Book Fair at Barnes & Noble at the Country Club Plaza. Students handed out vouchers to customers that granted FSHS to receive 15% credit of sales purchased – the credit will be used to fund new books for the school's library.


Students also demonstrated fun scientific experiments using dry ice and helium to entice customers. Students spent a good part of their afternoon helping children color and create Christmas cards, as well as reading fun stories in the children's area.


Shoutout to all the students and staff members who helped make this event possible and a great success!

Home Visits

Home visits continue to go strong at Frontier Schools. Teachers and school staff have visited approximately 648 students in 399 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.
