Frankland Public School opened its doors in 1910 and was named after Henry Robertshaw Frankland, who was born in 1876 in Toronto and served in many local capacities such as reeve, justice of the peace, alderman, school trustee, and more. His family lived on the northeast corner of Pape and Danforth, where his father had a butcher shop. Henry Frankland fought to have a planned new school located in the rapidly growing Danforth area. In October 1910, the new two storey, 11-room building on Logan Avenue opened for 360 students.
See if you can spot the original arch and perhaps even kindergarten windows that were preserved from the old building!
In 2010 Frankland Community School celebrated its 100th anniversary. To learn more about our history and 100th year celebrations, please visit our anniversary celebration website:
