Welcome to Fremd High School

  • The staff and administration of William Fremd High School welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. Each year presents an opportunity for our Viking community to provide students extraordinary opportunities, innovative teaching, and exceptional learning experiences.

    Fremd High School's students, staff, and parents are committed to academic excellence and support one another during times of triumph and adversity. We depend on our entire school community to work together to ensure a successful educational experience for our students.


  • After the Second World War, the population of Palatine had outgrown the capacity of Palatine High School, and a second facility was needed to handle the additional students. In 1961, Palatine High School South opened at the intersection of Quentin Road and Illinois Street. Originally, PHS South served only freshmen and sophomores, with juniors and seniors attending Palatine High School. After three years, the two schools both became four year high schools, and PHS South was renamed in honor of William Fremd, who served on local school boards for over four decades. Fremd High School had its first graduation in 1968.

    Over the next four decades, the school progressively grew, adding to both the curriculum and the building as the area’s population burgeoned and science and technology advanced. Today, in the 21st Century, Fremd High School hosts nearly 3,000 students and has a faculty of over 200 teachers. FHS has received countless awards, honors, and recognition for its excellence in academics, athletics, and the fine arts.
