About Us

Principal’s Welcome


Welcome to Frankston High School where our exemplary learning culture is reflected in our school motto Optima Semper : Best Always. We are very proud of our outstanding reputation as a high performing school of personal and academic excellence.

It is the people in our community that make our school such a special place to be, parents who value education, dedicated teachers providing challenging learning experiences and students who rise to meet our high expectations, often exceeding them.

Our priority is to produce model citizens who are well skilled to address the challenges of the 21st Century. Young people who are creative, critical thinkers, independent learners, effective communicators and great leaders productively contributing to society.  Our graduates leave well equipped with these skills together with excellent VCE results.  This enables them to access further learning in the tertiary sector as a pathway to achieving their dreams.

The health and well being of students is supported across all year levels with a variety of programs, catering to age related needs. We provide a diverse range of wonderful learning opportunities that include flying planes, performing in award winning bands, playing sport in state and national championships and visiting and helping remote communities.  These are but a few of the many activities on offer at Frankston High School. Consequently our young people enjoy coming to school and graduate ready to make the world a better place.
