Sydenham High School was first established in 1872 and proposed to serve the whole county. During the early years, it was called the Sydenham and Frontenac County Grammar School and managed by a County Board of Trustees. Each year the number of attending students increased until students from outside the county were required to pay fees so that the school could afford to hire a fourth teacher.
In 1927 the school hired its first bus from a private owner to service the Harrowsmith area. By 1947, it was clear the school building needed an expansion to accommodate its growing population, and by 1952 additions cost an estimated $17,000.
Sydenham High School continues to grow as a well-established rural institution that today services almost 1000 students. Following its motto "Spirit, Heritage, Success', the school continues pride itself on its community and history.
