    I have two boys that attend the Frost School. One in Kindergarten and the other is in the 1st grade. I am very happy to have my children attend such a wonderful diverse school. The Teachers and staff are just wonderful!

    The teachers and staff at the Robert Frost School are wonderful caring educators. My 9 year old son attends and I feel he's getting a great education with a very caring and dedicated staff.

    Although many people believe that the eduacation that you get in Lawrence High School is not up to par I beg to differ. I recentley graduated from Lawrence High and I am now at an Ivy Leauge school. I actually want to thank Lawrence High for the opportunities that they provided me.
