Frontier Middle School offers a small school setting grounded in the principles of the middle school concept. Students apply 21st Century skills (collaboration, time allocation/management, self-direction and technology literacy) through project-based learning to demonstrate achievement and mastery of the NCSD standards. FMS digital students benefit from a technology-rich environment that encourages problem solving, higher-order thinking and global interactions. Every student and teacher is provided an Apple laptop, and access to the school network is available 24/7. A flexible schedule within each block ensures quality instruction time based on student learning needs and allows for safe, purposeful movement throughout the school day. Teachers and students are members of academic teams promoting smaller learning communities emphasizing student achievement, relationship building, and school-to-home communication.

At Frontier, each child’s learning day begins with Home Den A.M. and Advisory that allows a small group of students and an adult to build relationships through grade checks, character building, service learning and health/wellness. The remainder of the school day is divided into three blocks of study: Literacy Block (language arts, science, social studies, careers and vocational education, arts, and language arts lab), Problem Solving Block (math, physical education, health and math lab), and Extended Learning Block (musical performance, interventions, tutoring, and a wide variety of course offerings such as drama and foreign language). Home Den P.M. ends each day.
Students also may participate in a variety of activities and clubs, such as Technology Student Association, Lego Robotics, History Day, Math Bowl, Science Fair, Yearbook and School Newspaper. Additional clubs/sports are available depending on student interest.
FMS actively engages in Kelly Walsh E.L.A.T.E. (Eastside Learning and Activities Team Experience), promoting a culture of participation for schools on the east side of Casper.
Frontier students have the opportunity for after-school sports through a partnership campus sports program with Casper Classical Academy, including football (grades seven and eight), volleyball, basketball, wrestling, track and cheerleading. New to the after-school program are cross-country and golf.
Frontier students begin and end each school day with an advisor/home den teacher. The home den teacher serves as the liaison for parent communication. Home Den provides students with continuous guidance within the context of a supportive and stable peer group.
All students also continue one block a day of an elective or extensions course. This may include enrichment or remediation in reading, writing and/or math, musical performance, or a basic learning strategies course for students who have an individualized learning plan.
Breakfast is available before school.
