Robert Frost Middle School has a reputation for academic excellence built on the strength of its caring teachers, supportive parents, and dedicated students. The school's primary mission is to help produce the leaders of tomorrow, people who know how to think, solve problems, and make difficult decisions in a changing world.
Students are assigned to teams of approximately 130 students who share the same English, science, and social studies teachers. Team teachers collaborate on assignments and procedures to help ensure student success. Interdisciplinary instruction, through which concepts taught in one discipline are applied in another, is stressed.
In formulating goals for the school, staff members have focused not only on who the children are now, but also on who and what they will become. By stressing high expectations for both academic performance and behavior, staff members concentrate on ethics and citizenship with the hope that Frost students will grow to be people who will make a difference in their communities and their families.
Recognizing that the students will join a complex and competitive workforce, teachers stress the acquisition of skills that will be valuable on the job.
Because business leaders tell schools that workers are needed who have the ability to think creatively and to respond intelligently to challenging situations, students frequently have opportunities to work in small groups on academic projects. Opportunities for critical thinking and problem solving are provided in every subject.
Frost Middle School encourages parents to become partners. By working to build strong home-school communication, parents and teachers work to foster the development of the next generation of leaders.
