THE PAST Frost Independent School District's long proud tradition began in May, 1890, with the formation of Frost Common School District. At this inception, students were housed in three large rooms. This was the arrangement until 1910, when, following passage of a bond issue, students were moved into a larger, more modern building. Through the years, other districts consolidated with the original Frost Common School District to form the Frost Independent School District. Among those which joined Frost ISD were the districts of Grimes, League, Hackberry, Emmett, Henry, Jones, McCord and Mertens. Consolidations, natural disasters such as tornadoes and fire, bond issues and building programs all helped to change the appearance of Frost ISD. It is currently housed in a Pre-Kindergarten- through- twelfth-grade complex. This complex is complemented by four outside structures which house vocational agriculture, music and physical education classes and extra-curricular actvities. Other facilities, such as football and baseball fields and tennis courts, are shared through a reciprocal agreement with the City of Frost. THE PRESENT Frost ISD has maintained steady enrollment growth over the last few years. Currently, there is an approximate enrollment of 380 PK-12 students. Frost employs 36 full-time professional personnel and 19 auxiliary and para-professional personnel. These staff members, along with shared services with Mildred ISD and Freestone-Navarro County Special Education Cooperative, form a cohesive, productive faculty. Through the years, Frost ISD has gained a reputation as a district with an outstanding academic program. Recent public and legislative demands for more accountability have enhanced that reputation. The State of Texas and The Texas Education Agency have developed an accountability system known as The Academic Excellence Indicator System. This system assigns ratings to each district and every campus within that district based on test results, college entrance scores, attendance and drop-out rates. As would be expected, Frost ISD has met this challenge. Since the inception of the rating system, Frost ISD has had either Frost Elementary or Frost High School rated as a 'recognized' campus yearly. The most recent rating for 1995-96 rates Frost Elementary and High School campuses as 'recognized'. In interschool competition, Frost students have fared well over the years. Frost High School won University Interscholastic League District Spring Literary contests twice in the 1990s, sending numerous students to regional competition and placing two students in state competition each of the last two years. Frost High's one-act play cast has advanced beyond zone competition six of the seven years of the current decade. Athletically, Frost has won district titles in girls' and boys' basketball and in boys' track-and-field during this decade. The girls' basketball team earned Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Top 10 ranking and advanced to the playoffs each of the last four years. The boys' basketball team had similar success, earning TABC Top 10 ranking and advancing to the playoffs each of the last three years. The track-and-field team advanced several individuals to regional meets and twice earned state qualifications. The Frost Polar Bear baseball team also advanced to the playoffs during the 1990s -- most recently in 1996. As we head toward the 21st century, Frost ISD not only has kept up with the technology movement required of the time period, but has led the movement. Students in grades PK through 12 have opportunity to 'surf the Internet' without leaving their classrooms. Computers are networked throughout the school in every classroom, three computer labs and the library, giving students the opportunity to send E-mail, correspond with neighboring schools, research materials from the school library as well as the finest libraries in the world, and access the Internet without ever leaving their campus.
