Frost serves approximately 600 students in seventh and eighth grades.
Frost was the district’s first school constructed specifically for junior high age youth. The 64,000-square-foot building was originally designed with two academic “islands” in the building’s center: one for seventh-grade and one for eighth-grade classes. Over the years, two major additions have been built that have allowed our facilities to expand to accommodate a physical education activity room, a library media center, an art room, a multimedia room, a music room, Band/Orchestra practice rooms, a STEM lab, an ELL/Dual Language room, modern language rooms, an Early Childhood Center, and Guidance offices.
All teaching spaces in the building have been wired to accommodate laptop computers, printers, and interactive white boards.
Students are placed in to the following core content classes: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and PE/Health. In addition, students are placed in to two elective classes and a lunch period. For students that need additional academic support in Reading or Math, they are placed in to a Literacy and/or Math Acceleration class in lieu of an elective. In addition, for students who are eligible for gifted services, they are placed in to Discovery classes in Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we run an alternate bell schedule that allows us to have a 30-minute block of uninterrupted flexible instruction time called Enrichment at the conclusion of the school day. Enrichment allows our teachers and specialists to work with students who need extra support and to extend the learning for students who are displaying skill mastery.
Our staff and students can draw upon the support of a principal, an assistant principal, and support staff including ELL teachers, special services teachers, a psychologist, two social workers, a speech and language therapist, a nurse, secretaries, and custodians.
Beyond the classroom, Frost offers an array of extracurricular activities. There are numerous interscholastic sports teams, an intramural program, and over twenty after-school club offerings.
