Robert Frost Middle School (Cluster: 3; Grades: 7-8, website) is a public school named after the poet Robert Frost and located southeast of Fairfax.
Most students feed into W. T. Woodson High School for grades 9-12, but some feed into Falls Church High School, Oakton High School, and Annandale High School. Every year, around 30 students test into Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology.
Frost's student body was 1066 during the 2007-2008 school year. During the same school year, 5.78% of the student body received free/reduced-priced meals, and 9.24% were classified as having limited English.
Frost has a GT center (FCPS Gifted and Talented). There are eight teams at Frost, four in the seventh grade (Cavaliers, Discovery, Endeavor, Travelers) and four in the eighth grade (Atoms, Explorers, Galaxy, Seekers).
As with many other middle schools in the area, chorus, orchestra and band classes take a trip to Busch Gardens near the end of the year.
Extracurricular activities occur every day of the week, with late buses offered on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Students have the option to stay after school on Tuesdays and Fridays, but they must have a ride home. The activities include:
All students at Frost are required to do community service (Service Learning Project) each quarter. Seventh graders must do a number of hours for the school year, and eighth graders must do 15–20 hours for the school year. There are several teachers who provide things for the students to do, but students may also choose to volunteer at a homeless shelter, soup kitchen, or similar location.
In 2007, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia gave a lecture to the entire Seekers team at Frost. Scalia's grandson was a student there at the time. Later in 2011, the Justice Scalia gave another lecture to the Seekers team; his granddaughter being there at that time.

“We raised a simple prayer
Before we left the spot,
That in the general mowing
That place might be forgot;
Or if not all so favored,
Obtain such grace of hours
That none should mow the grass there
While so confused with flowers.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)

—Ron Taffel (20th century)
“For rhetoric, he could not ope
His mouth, but out there flew a trope;
And when he happend to break off
I th middle of his speech, or cough,
H had hard words ready to show why,
And tell what rules he did it by;”
—Samuel Butler (16121680)

Till accidentally it hit on mind”
