    This school is amazing and one of the very best middle schools in Maryland (#1 in my opinion); excellent school administration counselors teachers students and parents who are actively involved in every aspect of their children's education. The school administrators counselors and teachers are invested in providing the best for your child's education and social well being. They have several events to communicate with parents and solicit feedback along with workshops on getting your child ready for high school and even college. They are responsive to the needs of the student community despite being a larger middle school. The test scores student academic results and Blue Ribbon awards are indicative of the quality of this school and the parent community. This school thoroughly prepares students for the rigors of going to the academically top notch Thomas S. Wootton High School.

    I go to Frost and believe it is a school of great teachers. They strive daily to be the best they can be for the students with the exception of a few who shall not be named. The principal Dr. Jones is loved by the students and as far as I am aware by the staff and parents too. However it does have a good deal of problems with bullying and disciplinary action has failed to do much good. Most administrators fail to connect on a personal level and seem distant and unapproachable to most. I personally would only come to them with a problem if someone was being harassed constantly or in danger. Another reason I fail to be completely satisfied with the school is that it has limited the social time to lunch and 3 20 minute blocks a week. Where children finally get to sit down five minutes into lunch and are dismissed five before it is over which is a gross mismanagement of time. As for "SOAR" which is the 20 minute block 3 times a week the students may only go to teachers they currently have and are all but told to get help from retake quizzes every single time. Well that is my rant and if I had to send a child of my own to Frost or somewhere like Eastern they're going to Frost.

    I am a student here and honestly you can't find anything better than Frost. 6/7 of the teachers I currently have all have a sense of humor. I can actually learn and not fall asleep here.

    My grandson is very happy there with all his classes and teachers and especially the band. I volunteer there with my husband for the string program and it is evident that children are happy and productive in that school environment.

    You do not find out how good a school is till you have an exceptional need. You want the school to be flexible and responsive to your kids unique circumstances. This school is not. The parent who commented about red tape is correct -- the school administration is bloated bureaucratic and inflexible. The school looks good on paper because of the kids who attend the school. Many teachers have no commitment (Mrs. Redden and Mrs. Rhinehart are great exceptions). The school is unable to find any math teacher to run its math club. There is no chess club.

    I haven't found the teachers to be as committed to the students as I would have hoped they'd be.

    This is my daughters last year at this school. She has had many great experiances throughout her years. The teachers there are truly interested in preparing your children for High School. I asked my daughter what she liked best about her years and she mentioned that she thought it was really special to receive in the mail a card from the principle with a note of encourgement and to keep up the good grades. I do have to say that the students really look up to Dr. Jones and value his opions.

    This school is excellent. If your child is gifted or needs extra help they will excel here. The teachers are always ready to help and make recommendations. This school goes above and beyond.
