After Francis Howell High School alone could no longer support the burgeoning population of its part of St. Charles County in 1983, Henderson Junior High School was built on Hackmann Road on the border of the cities of St. Charles and St. Peters. Henderson was eventually expanded and the name was changed to Francis Howell North High School and began taking high school students in 1986. A third high school (Francis Howell Central) was built in 1997.
The school is named after the early settler and militia leader Col. Francis Howell, who moved to St. Charles in 1797. His brother, Lewis Howell, was an advocate for education in the area.
