Welcome to Robert Frost Elementary, a place where history, learning, and community come together to shape the future of our students. Established in 1964, we have a rich legacy of academic excellence and a commitment to providing the best possible education to our students. Let's take a journey through our school's history and offerings.

A History of Excellence

Our story begins in 1964 when Robert Frost Elementary opened its doors on 22nd Avenue with a unique and award-winning "California" design. We couldn't help but wonder why open, outside hallways were chosen, especially during Pasco's chilly winters. However, these unique features gave our school character and charm.

The current Robert Frost building, which you see today, welcomed its first day of school on September 2, 1998. This transition was made possible by the unwavering support of Pasco voters, who agreed to fund the construction of a new school in a May 1996 bond election. The design of our school pays tribute to Longfellow Elementary, and the school's name honors the great early 20th-century American poet and thinker, Robert Frost. This renowned poet earned four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry and is celebrated for his realistic depictions of rural life.

Embracing Diversity and Bilingual Education

At Robert Frost Elementary, we take pride in our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Like many Pasco schools, we offer Spanish bilingual education classes, where subjects are taught in students' primary language as they acquire English proficiency. This approach ensures that all students have the opportunity to excel academically while embracing and celebrating their cultural backgrounds.

Additionally, we are proud to house the Spanish Bilingual Spectrum Program, with 98 students enrolled from kindergarten through 5th grade. This program provides a supportive and enriching environment for students to thrive academically and culturally.

Supporting Every Student's Journey

At Robert Frost Elementary, we understand that each student is unique and may have different needs. That's why we have two Structured Learning classrooms dedicated to students who require extra support, both socially and academically. Our commitment to personalized learning ensures that every child has the opportunity to succeed and grow.

Recognizing Positive Choices

We believe in promoting positive behavior and values at Robert Frost Elementary. To encourage and reward good behavior, we hold daily drawings for students who have earned Cougar P.A.W.S. This incentive program acknowledges students for making Positive choices, Always being safe, Working responsibly, and Showing respect. We are dedicated to fostering a safe and respectful learning environment where every student can flourish.
