History

Robert Frost School has been one of the most progressive schools in the area in its work with the diverse community in Mount Prospect. In 1997 they began organizing picnics and games with local police departments; in order to make the children comfortable with police officers and make information available on the services offered by the aw enforcement agencies. In 1998 it underwent a major renovation, creating more multi use spaces and became the first school in District 21 to offer a bilingual program, serving students whose first language was Polish. In 2000 the school began hosting an annual Mexican Fiesta, to celebrate the diverse cultural history of the students and make the Latino families in the community feel more included and a part of the school system.
