The Frost School

  • 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.
