Frankford High School Receives a $500,000 Grant
Frankford High School received a $500,000 check from AT&T. The money will support a new initiative designed to identify students at risk of eventually dropping out and bombard those students with extra support.
The program is called Diplomas Now and actually emerged out of research conducted right here in Philadelphia (more on that later). Today Diplomas Now operates in 29 schools across 13 cities. Philadelphia now has two of those schools: Frankford and Grover Washington Middle School.
Our school uniform consists of red, blue or gold Frankford High School shirt with black or tan pants or skirts (knee length) for all 10th, 11th, and 12th graders.
All 9th graders must wear the gray Frankford golf shirt with black or tan pants/skirts. School shirts and gym uniforms must be purchased in the Frankford High School store.
School shirts are available for $10 a piece. Jeans or denim of any kind are not permitted to be worn as part of the school uniform.

Good Evening Parents and Guardians,
I am reaching out to you to ask that you remind our students that this Wednesday, October 19th, we are administering the SAT to all Seniors and the PSAT to all underclassmen.
I am specifically asking for your help in making sure our students are in school earlier than usual this Wednesday. As such, we will be opening our doors at 7:15 instead of 7:30 to ensure all students are seated and ready to begin by 8:15.
Just a reminder to parents of Seniors that all Seniors must take the SAT as a requirement to participate in the Senior Prom and the graduation ceremony itself. Students arriving late will not be able to take the SAT as there are very stringent requirements and procedures. Please make sure that all Seniors have photo ID with them, their student ID is sufficient.
Thank you in advance for your support.
