Parents/Guardians and Students:
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2021-22 academic school year.
Frontier High School is an exciting and special place. It is a high-performing school in a remarkable supportive community, which offers a unique and compelling combination of excellence in academics and engagement. Since its inception in 2006, Frontier’s committed staff has demonstrated passion and enthusiasm for learning. The school as a whole has worked to develop and cultivate a student experience that embraces the pursuit of excellence in the classroom and beyond. This unwavering pursuit of excellence is reflected in our motto: TITAN QUEST. Frontier provides programs and services to empower all students to be respectful, responsible, safe and productive members of our 21st century society. The fundamental belief that great achievements are possible through hard work and continuous improvement and that achievement is enhanced by great relationships and connections are ideas that permeate throughout the entire Frontier staff and student body.
As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has had an incredible impact on our students, community as well as our school system. Frontier, along with the entire Kern High School District, has returned to full in-person instruction and are also offering an independent study distance-learning model for those in need of an alternative during these unique times. The school year has started in such a tremendously positive way. Students and staff alike have boundless energy, enthusiasm, and are committed to ensure our transition back to in-person instruction is an incredibly successful one. I am continually inspired by the hard work, dedication, and strength of our mighty TITAN Nation.
Last year, to provide a common learning platform for staff and students, Frontier adopted Canvas as our learning management system. Staff are continuing to utilize this helpful platform while providing in-person instruction. We encourage parents to sign-up as an Observer to Canvas to track classwork/homework completion. We encourage both students and parents to activate their respective accounts in Synergy StudentVue and ParentVue to monitor all aspects of student progress including grades. Should you need assistance or information in any way, please reach out to our incredible Parent Resource Center, as it is equipped with helpful friendly staff and many beneficial resources. Lastly, we strive to help every student feel welcomed, connected and a part of our TITAN Family. Please know that, our counseling and intervention staff are readily available to provide support, as needed.
I am honored to serve Frontier High School as principal and look forward to getting to know you and your family.
