Frankston High School is a large multi campus, coeducational school situated in South Frankston. We have a strong sense of tradition with excellent parent involvement and strong links with the local community. The school has a population in excess of 1900 students; the Year 7-10 and Senior Campuses occupy adjacent sites.
Students achieve outstanding results in the VCE and tertiary selection. The school has a priority of offering a breadth of VCE programs which maximise tertiary opportunities for all students. There are a large number of accelerated courses, including university enhancement programs. Vocational Education and Training (VET) programs are now well established at the VCE level.
An extensive transition program helps students to adjust from primary to secondary school and the Year 7 tutorial program engenders a sense of security and belonging to the school. As students’ progress through each sub-school they are introduced to increased choice, flexibility and responsibility, culminating in a more adult learning environment on the Senior Campus. In each sub-school the curriculum aims to promote extension and enhancement of learning for all students.
Frankston High School continues to lead state schools in the use of technology. Tablet Notebook computer classes at Years 7 to 9 have proved an outstanding success. Staff undergo extensive relevant professional learning keeping them at the forefront in the use of technology in the classroom. Our use of multi media, school portal, learning centre and school website, facilitate communication with the world and promote true “twenty-four-seven” learning.
