Frankfort High School is a school located within a close-knit community. The students have a very high success rate after graduation not only because their will to be successful, but because how much the staff enforces it. Principal, Joe Riley, takes education of Frankfort seriously; making sure each and every student is on task in the classrooms. The teachers are supportive inside and outside of the classroom, and make sure students are taken care of and doing well. As well as that, extra-cirricular actvities are enjoyable, but always put second to the classroom. Go Falcons!

Frankfort High School's staff are very kind and they care about your advancement in education. They try to help you out any way that they can. There is a police officer there all the time to ensure the safety of the kids. There is an anti-bullying policy. There are a decent amount of clubs to participate in. They have recently installed a salad bar. If you are a senior, then you have the opportunity to take college courses. That helps with your college credits.
