Traditions run deep and bring positive school culture to FHS.

Traditions run deep and bring positive school culture to FHS.

Frankfort High School (FHS) truly serves as an anchor of our community, not only in shaping the future of the community through education, but staying connected to the traditions of the past. One of the biggest sources of pride that makes FHS so special is its rich, deeply rooted traditions. Our senior clap-in and football homecoming parade are just a few examples of the decades of traditions that have been practiced and continue to be celebrated by students and alumni year after year. These traditions fill our space full of positive culture and school pride that fosters a sense of belonging which is a necessity for each of our students at FHS.

As a Title I school focused on student growth and achievement for post-secondary success, we ensure all students have the opportunity to experience that success. Frankfort High has made an investment to fully fund dual-credit college courses for all students. In the 2021-22 school year our small school of approximately 330 students completed 422 dual credit courses with 54.2% of students participating in dual credit courses. To further ensure post-secondary success, students work throughout their high school career on project-based learning that equips the development of student's cognitive skills and habits of success. Students display their skills in a defense of their education and qualify for a senior internship placement, in which all students display the generalization of learned skills within the community.
