Hear from Amirah Pughsley about supporting students’ individual needs and challenging their growth mindsets.
With a 99.9% graduation rate, Frontier provides students with an enriched learning atmosphere, transportation, meals, and exciting social activities, including after school and weekend tutoring programs. Students have the opportunity to accrue college credits and gain real-world experiences through special ﬁeld investigation trips, summer internships, college tours and science-oriented projects. Our dedication to meet the needs of all scholars, including those whose primary interest is non-STEM, attests to our philosophy that success is a standard!
I teach because I enjoy supporting students’ individual needs and challenging their growth mindsets. I teach because nothing else is as challenging and equally rewarding. I’m inspired by my students’ abilities—that’s what I have an obligation to, not their disabilities.
