Welcome to Frontier Local School District!

Welcome to Frontier Local School District’s new website. Frontier Local School District serves over 700 students, within it's two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. In 1968, Frontier Local School District was formed from the consolidation of four school districts, Newport, Lawrence, Bloomfield, and Matamoras. Cougars became the new athletic mascot name and the new school colors became Columbia Blue and Vegas Gold. Located along the Ohio River in Washington County, the district covers 156 square miles with Wayne National Forest, making up 40 percent of the area. Frontier Local School District is the largest employer in the district with approximately 100 employees.

The district is mainly rural with a limited tax base and approximately 80 percent of our operating funds come from the state and federal governments. Over 60 percent of our students qualify for Free or Reduced Lunches and the district offers free breakfast to every student.

Frontier Local School District earned a state report card rating of “Effective” for the 2009-2010 school and Frontier High Middle School earned a Bronze Medal rating in 2009 from U.S. News and World Report.
