Charter Expansion Approved!
The Robert Frost Public Charter School has been approved to expand their charter to include grades 9-12!
In June of 2021, the Robert Frost Public Charter School Board of Trustees voted to pursue an amendment to their charter with the NH Department of Education. Once approved, the proposed Charter amendment would allow the school to expand their offerings to include grades 9–12 along with their existing K-8 program. After many months spent preparing the foundation and documentation required, the NH State Board of Education unanimously approved the expansion request.
High school students at the Robert Frost Public Charter School will receive individualized education, tailored to the needs of the student utilizing a combination of Montessori principles and Project-Based Learning.
Classroom sizes will be small enough to provide focused attention while being large enough to provide diversity and understanding through the sharing of multiple experiences.
Standards for the High School Program have been set to exceed the State of New Hampshire’s requirements for graduation. Through presenting a blended curriculum, instructors will guide each high school student along their journey from skill acquisition to mastery, similar to the presentation of curriculum in the K-8 program.
Extended learning and work study opportunities will be a key component to each individual path to graduation. Collaborations with entrepreneurs, local business partners and Mount Washington Valley resources will expand horizons and offer opportunities for future growth and enlightenment.
At the Robert Frost Public Charter School, our goal is that all students become life-long learners through an intellectually rich & challenging experience that develops 21st Century Skills through a blending of Montessori tradition and Project-Based Learning.
If this remarkable education sounds like a good fit for your high schooler, please reach out to us! We are currently in the planning stage of this program and hope to include our future students' needs into that development process. This free education has limited space.

Saturday, October 11, 2018
The Robert Frost Public Charter School Board of Trustees sponsored the First Annual Harvest Festival, Saturday, October 27, 2018. This event was held to raise funds to support the long term sustainability of the school. As a public charter school, RFPCS does not charge tuition to NH residents, so supplementing the per pupil aid received by the State of NH is an important aspect of the work the Board of Trustees does for the school.
Despite the snowy weather, lots of Fall fun was had by all! Activities included Pumpkin decorating, Pumpkin Memory, Pumpkin Pick, Guess How Many, Guess My Weight, Paper Airplane Toss, Harvest Ring Toss, Face Painting, Fall Photo Booth, Bake Sale, Crafters/Vendors and a visit from Aroma Joes!
The Board thanks all who supported this fundraiser!
