Academics

Our mission at Frankfort High School is to develop students who are “life-long learners who are civic-minded, college/career ready and progressing to their full potential”. In striving to meet the individual learning need of each student the staff provides a variety of instructional strategies to ensure student success.

Our curriculum currently provides students with a variety of challenging classes including 11 Advanced Placements courses which allow students the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school, a Science Academy career pathway, an Aviation career pathway and a Consumer Science career pathway.

In addition to holding our students to the highest of academic standards we have set a goal to ensure that student’s grades are accurate, consistent, meaningful, and supportive of learning. With that in mind we adopted standards-based grading to help make that possible. Teachers focus on intentionally teaching content standards with a laser-like focus and then assess student mastery of those standards through the use of both formative and summative assessments.

All of these facets go together to ensure students that graduate from Frankfort High School are college and/or career ready and able to move on to the next stages of their lives.
