How's Virtual Learning Going?

We asked students how 2nd-semester virtual learning was going. Here’s what they told us!

Parent Survey Results Are In!

Thank you to all of our parents who took the time to fill out the recent parent survey. The results are in and here are some of the top things we learned!

More than 91% of parents gave a rating of excellent, good or fair in these areas:

  • the amount of support from the teacher for their child's learning
  • the amount of communication they received about their student's progress

Here are some parent survey comments we received:

  • "Love, love, love the structure and set up my children are receiving. It's still so hands on and the teachers are so supportive and understanding of how my kids are coping with the changes."
  • "I'm very grateful for my kid's teachers. I know they must be working really hard to make this school year work out and I'm sure it's difficult for them as well."
  • "The teachers are always keeping me informed about my daughter's progress."
  • "The teachers are awesome! The programs/software they've been using are good."
  • "Thanks so much for all you do for my kids."

Thank you, Parents! We appreciate your feedback!

Virtual Home Visits

Teachers and school staff have virtually visited 781 students in 730 homes since the start of the 2020-21 school year.

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.

A SHOUT-OUT to our teachers & staff! Thank you for everything you do!

Please complete our 2020-21 Home Visit Survey .

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.
