Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome

I would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which Frankston High School sits, the Boon Wurrung people, and pay my respects to their elders past, present and emerging.

Welcome to Frankston High School, a school of high performance where our exemplary learning culture is reflected in our school motto, Optima Semper: Best Always.

Frankston High School opened on 12 February in 1924, this year marking our 100th anniversary of providing excellence to our community. We are very proud of our outstanding reputation of academic and personal excellence, along with providing many opportunities for student success in our acclaimed Sports, Music, Drama and the Arts, Languages and Student Leadership programs. We actively seek and respond to student voice across all levels of the school, combined with valuing feedback from parents and our staff to ensure we continue to develop our wonderful school.

All members of our community work together to always demonstrate our best.  We have dedicated teachers who reflect on the impact of their teaching and collaborate with others to provide excellent learning experiences, students who are empowered to take responsibility for their learning and meet our high expectations, and parents who value education and the opportunities it provides.

Our priority is to educate young people, so they have the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute positively to both their local and global community.  These skills include collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, independent learning, leadership, resilience and problem solving.  Our graduates leave well equipped with outstanding VCE results and a readiness to make their mark on the world.

The health and wellbeing of our students is supported across all year levels with a variety of programs including pastoral care and a focus on respectful relationships. We celebrate diversity and being inclusive of everyone.

We have some outstanding facilities and purpose-built learning spaces across both campuses including our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Centre, Music Centre, Sports Stadium with a full gymnasium, Swimming Pool, a new Wellbeing Centre, state of the art Performing Arts Theatre, our recently completed Food Technology classrooms, along with our brand new double-storey learning centre that includes excellent learning spaces for our students and staff.

We are very proud to be part of the community of Frankston.  I welcome you to come and see for yourself our caring culture of high expectations and look forward to meeting you on a school tour soon.
