Frankfurt Community High School was one of the original six DoDDS High Schools opened in 1946. The original site for the school was a building constructed in 1929-30. It was said to be the first of its kind in Europe and drew visitors from throughout Europe and the United States. The building had many uses over the next fifteen years. From May 1945 to September 1946 it was used as billets for American troops. On September 2, 1946, the building was vacated to be used as the Community High School. The first principal was Mr. Joe Donahoe. The school opened with 185 students. There were twenty-four graduates in the class of 1947. During the 1946-47 school year seventh and eighth graders attended the school. In 1951 the school became known as Frankfurt High School. In 1961 the name was again changed to Frankfurt American High School. Freshman attended the school from 1946–1949 and again from 1988–1995. Originally known as the “Maroon Raiders”, the “Eagle” was adopted as the school’s mascot during the 1948-49 school year. The school newspaper was Eagles Echo, and the school yearbook, the Dackel.
In the fall of 1954, the school moved to a newly constructed set of buildings on Siolistrasse at Miquelalle, near the I.G. Farben building. This became known as the Abrams Complex. The new complex included new male and female dormitories. There was a five-day dorm and a seven-day dorm. The girl’s dorm was separated from the boy’s dorm by a social lounge. Freshmen attended the school from 1946 until 1959 and again from 1988 until 1995.
