Tel: (301)933-3451
Grades: 3-12 | 127 students
The Frost School was created in 1976 to meet the needs of students who are unable to succeed in standard educational settings because of moderate to severe emotional disturbance.
By establishing a comprehensive, integrated school and psychiatric treatment approach, the program offers students and their families in the Washington Metropolitan area an alternative to residential psychiatric care.
The major goal of The Frost School is to permit the student's continued home residence while working towards re-entry into the regular education system, the working world, post-high school training or college within one or two years.
The philosophy of the Frost School begins with a concern for the student as a whole person with many facets and many needs.
The individual does not function in isolation.
The young person is affected by a variety of forces, such as family, peer group, school, and community.
His actions are not only self-impacting, but affect other people as well, including parents, siblings, peers, and the community in which he lives.
When the young person is having problems at home, trouble may be manifested in the classroom.
When having difficulties with school or peers, trouble may surface in the community or at home.
The common bond of this entire interaction is the individual.
The degree of difficulty may become so severe that the student can no longer function successfully or acceptably in one of these environments.
Then, the most appropriate program is one which addresses every force and influence in the student's life, and which helps the student realize and change his/her negative impact on self and others.
