Firooz Bahram High School (دبیرستان فیروز بهرام) is one of Tehran's oldest high schools still in operation.
Built in 1932, it was constructed on the property of Zoroastrians such as Ardeshir Kiamanesh. The school was named after an Iranian Zoroastrian that died in the Meditarranean in World War I. The school's establishment was supported by the then Zoroastrian representative in the Majles Keikhosro Shahrokh (کيخسرو شاهرخ).
Seyyed Hossein Nasr (President of Sharif University) went to Firuz Bahram High School before leaving for the United States A Prime Minister of Iran, Chancellor of Tehran University, and Ezatollah Negahban (Iran's father of Archeology) also are among the alumni of this school. The school was not the first Zoroastrian high school in Tehran however. That credit is given to Jamshid Jam (جمشيد جم) High School built in 1906.
The school is a historical landmark and cultural heritage of Tehran today.
