    maybe parents dont understand how bad their children are this school is pretty cool children just try to get over

    This school is very terrible. The teachers have no experience with kids. They don't have good teaching methods or skills. I do dislike this school because there are too many disrespectful students and adults as well. Their after school activities are no better as well the in school activities(which is none).

    There is no discipline in the class rooms. The children and argue and talk back to the teachers. There used to be a homework hot line. That is no longer in place. I've left messages for teachers to call me regarding my child(ren) and only one or two responded. I had one teacher tell me that she didn't even know how to use the voicemail on the phone. Some classes didn't even have enough books to distribute for each child. They were told to share a book with another student. Overall I am highly disappointed with this school and this school district.

    I found this school year to be very disappointing. My children learned about 'shanking' not Shakespeare. The classes were constantly rearranged and disrupted by fighting and arguing with the teachers. There are no extra-curricular activities. If your children is gifted there are no accomodations made. The school needs a major overhaul. If I had to do it over again I wouldn't have chosen Frost.
