History[edit]

The current Fairborn High School was built as Park Hills High School in the late 1960s. Fairborn Baker High School (now Baker Middle School) and Park Hills High School merged into Fairborn High School in 1982. Park Hills High School, also known as the Vikings includes graduating classes from 1972-1982; school colors during this time were brown and gold. When Baker High School (whose colors were sky blue and gold) and Park Hills high school merged, the school colors also merged to become sky blue and brown (dropping the gold). In 1997 school colors changed from sky blue and brown to navy blue and Columbia blue.
