Robert Frost Middle School

Robert Frost Middle School bustles with an air of positive energy, excitement, and purposefulness. On any given day, in addition to regular classes and activities, meetings in various configurations are taking place to improve student life and learning: from meetings in our departments and grade levels to the meetings of our governing councils and lead teams; from task forces on capital improvements, to task forces on feeder school articulation and preparing students for life after middle school; from teacher-led individualized instruction to large group orientations; from student assemblies to productive parent meetings; from student representatives meetings to staff leadership meetings. Students, teachers, administrators, staff members, and parents feel that their voices are being heard and collaborate to ensure continuous improvement of our safe and academically rigorous learning environment.

During a time where many public schools are seeing a decrease in enrollment, Frost is experiencing a continuous growth in enrollment over the past several years.  In addition to the students who live in our residential attendance area, many students enroll at Frost with a variety of permits:  Magnet, School for Advanced Studies (SAS), Open Enrollment (OE), Sibling, Child Care and Work Permits.

 

Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 - January 29, 1963)


One of our most beloved American poets, Robert Lee Frost, was famous for his poems about nature and the people of New England. Born near San Francisco, California, his family moved to New Hampshire when he was 10 years old; otherwise, he might have written about California redwoods instead of New England birches. In 1912, he took his family to England. When he returned to the United States in 1915, Frost was considered “a leading voice of the modern poetic renaissance” (Dictionary of American Biography).

Frost received the Pulitzer Prize for poetry four times; more than any other poet. He was also honored by being asked to read his poem, “The Gift Outright,” at President John F. Kennedy’s inauguration. That poem begins: “The land was ours before we were the land’s...” Frost often wrote about the relationship between people and nature and shows a good understanding of humankind. Before his book, A Boy’s Will, made him famous almost over night, Frost worked as a shoemaker, a country school teacher, the editor of a rural newspaper, and a farmer. On September 16, 1969, Robert Frost Middle School opened and was named in honor of this great man.
