I graduated Frankford high in 1970, it was a wonderful school then and is to this day. The students and their parents are the problem. Education is free if you chose to work for/towards it

it is not the best school, but ever since i left my chater school i've learned alot more. the public school system is not babying me, so that helps me learn on my own, and if i need help it is always there.

This is my daughters second year in Frankford High. The school works hard to provide the kids with a safe learning facility. The teachers take a great intrest in the children and what they learn.So far I am very pleased with my daughter atending frankford.
