  • Our History
    Frankford High School has a history dating back to 1910, with its beginnings in a farmhouse as an annex of Central High School.  The early students called themselves the “Pioneers”, a name still used today.  Our current building opened in 1916, with the addition of the stadium in 1922.  The gymnasium was added in 1954, an extension to the lunchroom in 1965, and the new wing in 1970.  Frankford is one of the oldest high schools in the city, with a proud heritage, both on the playing field and in the classroom.
