Fred J. Page High School (commonly referred to as Page High or PHS) is a senior high school in Franklin, Tennessee in the prestigious Williamson County School District nationally recognized for superior academic achievement.[6] The school opened in August of 1975 along Arno Road in the unincorporated town of Rudderville bearing the name of former Williamson County Superintendent Frederick Jackson Page. The school is consistently ranked among America's top 500 high schools by Newsweek magazine and U.S. News & World Report.[7] Page High School has also produced a remarkable number of scholars, athletes and entertainers given its small size and relatively rural location.

During the 2014-15 school year, The Daily Beast website ranked Page High School the second best school in Tennessee and 59th best in America (based on college acceptance rates, AP course enrollment, college entrance exam scores and college preparedness among other criteria).[8][9] In 2014, U.S. News & World Report ranked Page High School the #1 public school zone in both mathematics and English proficiency in the state of Tennessee for the fourth consecutive year.[10] The website Schooldigger.com named Page High the top secondary school in the state[11] while Newsweek named the school zone the second best academically in Tennessee with the 7th highest average SAT score in the United States.[12] An independent study ranked the AP Calculus program the strongest in the state of Tennessee among zoned public schools.[13]

During the 2013-14 school year, Page High School in Williamson County and Farragut High School in Knox County were the only two high schools in Tennessee that ranked among the top 5% in academic performance and the top 5% in academic progress.[14] At the conclusion of the 2013–14 school year, Page High was awarded Platinum High Achievement status for the fourth consecutive year through the National High Schools That Work initiative of the Southern Regional Education Board.[15] The school is among only a few schools in Tennessee consistently bestowed National Blue Ribbon status[16] and was one of three high school finalists for the 2011 SCORE prize[17] after demonstrating tremendous academic gains. In 2013, Dr. Andrea Anthony was named the Tennessee High School Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.[18]

Frederick Jackson Page[edit]

Page High School was named after Frederick Jackson Page (1863–1944), the first Superintendent of Williamson County Schools.[19] He served in that position for 42 years (1899–1941) retiring at the age of 77.[20] Superintendent Page gained a reputation nationally as a revolutionary educator, scholar and author. He was instrumental in the county's expansion from 8 grades to 12 grades in the early 1900s, lengthened the school year from five months to nine months, and introduced the ideas of summer school for remediation purposes and increased rigor in elementary school. Page revolutionized the teacher certification process and introduced the idea of uniform textbooks to replace teacher-made materials, additionally consolidating hundreds of tiny schoolhouses into larger, centralized institutions.[21]

Frederick Page was born in Triune, Tennessee on October 7, 1863 at a time when Civil War battles were prevalent in the area.[21] The Page homestead was located just five miles east of what would become the Page High School campus a century later.[20] Page's ancestors had arrived in Williamson County in the early 1800s, his grandparents marrying there on February 5, 1817. Page's grandmother Nancy Armstrong is buried in Franklin, TN.[22]

Frederick J. Page
(1863–1944)

Page received his master's degree at the age of 18 from Peabody College, now part of Vanderbilt University. He was named principal of Clarksville High School in Clarksville, Tennessee at the age of 19. Page later worked in West Tennessee as a teacher in Overton County and as president of Obion College in the town of Troy.[20] He eventually returned to Williamson County becoming the principal of College Grove Preparatory School in College Grove, Tennessee prior to his tenure as superintendent.[23] Page retired in 1941 and passed away on April 9, 1944 at the age of 80, buried in Mount Hope Cemetery.[20][21] Years after his passing, the home in which he lived was torn down and the property became what is now Williamson County Animal Hospital at 1126 Murfreesboro Road.

Fred J. Page High School campus[edit]

Fred J. Page School was completed in 1975 on 40 acres of Tennessee farmland at a cost of US$ 3 million. Built in the unincorporated town of Rudderville, TN and serving grades 7-12, the school was posthumously named for Frederick Page 31 years after his death.[23] The building was designed by architect Earl Swensson whose award-winning firm would later serve as architect of record on the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, TN.[24][25] L.L. Poe Construction Company served as contractor on the project just seven years after completing the Keathley University Center on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University.[26] The new school was constructed to remove and consolidate the upper grades of Bethesda and College Grove, two K-12 schools that were bitter rivals.[2][21] Bethesda, College Grove and Nolensville subsequently became K-6 schools while Page would serve grades 7-12.

Page High School became Williamson County's fourth public high school joining Fairview, Franklin and Hillsboro. It was the largest and most modern school in the county upon completion, the first new public high school opened since the completion of West Williamson High in 1956 (later renamed Fairview High School). In 1957 Franklin High School was completed at its present Hillsboro Road location but only to replace the building that had burned on Columbia Avenue the previous year.[21] While Page, Fairview and Franklin still stand, Hillsboro High School no longer exists (the building now housing a community center in historic Leiper's Fork, Tennessee).[27]

Built to serve the eastern sector of Williamson County with a capacity of 1000 students, Page High School's initial enrollment was around 850. The inaugural faculty included principal Bob Greathouse, assistant principal Mayes Waters, two guidance counselors, one librarian and 36 teachers. In 2000, Page High School marked its 25th anniversary with nine of the original 36 teachers still employed. As of 2014-15, Jimmy Baker is the only active teacher from the original faculty. The original school building included 34 classrooms, but an expansion in the 1990s increased that number to current total of 54 classrooms with an expanded capacity for 1215 students.[21]

In 1981, Fred J. Page Middle School opened across the street at which point the original Fred J. Page became a high school exclusively serving grades 9-12.[28]

In 1985, several scenes of the critically acclaimed movie At Close Range were filmed on location at the entrance of Fred J. Page High School. The movie was released in 1986 boasting an all-star cast including Sean Penn and Christopher Walken and Page High students were used as extras. The football stadium is named after legendary musician Waylon Jennings but the new scoreboard installed in 2013 no longer bears his name.

Williamson County population explosion[edit]

Until 2004, the Page High School zone included the towns of Thompson's Station and the northern half of Spring Hill. However throughout that decade the area became the fastest growing population in the United States[29] swelling to over 276% growth.[30] The initial population explosion was attributed to the opening of the Saturn Corporation automobile plant in Spring Hill. At one point 20% of the students at Page High School were Michigan natives, most of whom were families relocated from the Midwest by Saturn's parent company General Motors. The subsequent affordable neighborhoods that now dominate southern Williamson County have allowed more families to reside within Tennessee's top school district. This has contributed to continued population growth as has a thriving local economy and an abundance of job opportunities in the area.[31] The families of executives transplanted by corporations headquartered in Middle Tennessee have had a direct impact on the population of Page High School including Amazon, Nissan, O'Charley's and Shoney's.

Having the smallest capacity of the seven high schools in this expanse of Williamson County has allowed Page High School to maintain an annual enrollment of around 850 students throughout most of its 40-year existence despite this enormous population boom.[32] Page has also been the only of these high schools (except newly opened Summit) to neither suffer from the recent overcrowding issues nor face overcrowding projections in upcoming years. This is a direct result of the staggered construction of five new high schools within a ten-mile radius of Page High's campus over two decades; Centennial High School opening in 1996, Ravenwood High School in 2002, Independence High School in 2004, Summit High School in 2011 and Northeast High School projected to open in 2016.[33][34][35][36]

Patriot Idol[edit]

Beginning in 2008, Page High School began hosting an annual singing competition known as Patriot Idol modeled after the popular television program American Idol. One of the winners of Patriot Idol, Kaylan Loyd, became a contestant on American Idol. Music industry professionals, abundant in the Nashville area, serve as judges on the Patriot Idol panel each year including Joel Smallbone of the band for KING & COUNTRY, legendary musicians Tim Akers and Nathan DiGesare, and frequent celebrity judge Tiffany Lee.

Lip dub film shoot[edit]

In an effort to showcase the talent and school spirit of Page High, students and teachers organized a lip dub featuring the entire student body and staff. Filming began in Room 201 at approximately 9:45 am on April 3, 2013. The video features a number of talents including the singing of juniors Celica Westbrook and Juhi Pathak, both contestants on The Voice in 2012 and 2013 respectively. The video also featured the singing of senior Delaney Amatrudo, daughter of actor Ed Amatrudo, weeks before she was accepted into the notable drama program at New York University.[84] The lip dub featured partial choreography by senior Katie Lee who became a student at prestigious Cal Arts and was directed by independent filmmaker Pete Wade, the school's calculus teacher. Incredibly 75% of the performers were calculus students including Pathak, Amatrudo and Lee.

The video was debuted to the student body in their auditorium on April 25, 2013 at 9:15 am. Later that day, at 18 seconds past 10:30 am, the video was released on wcstube[85] (a county-operated video website) under the name Fred J Page High LipDub 2013. Within three days, the video had garnered 20,000 hits and quickly became one of the most watched videos in the website's history.[86]

Interestingly, a portion of the video featured lip synching by senior Matt Jacobs, his older brother having appeared in the BYU-Idaho lip dub which is certainly the most critically acclaimed video in this genre. A song selection committee at Page High chose five songs to incorporate in the video. Ironically they included the popular song "Blow" performed by American recording artist Kesha who attended Brentwood High School, a local rival of Page High School. In the fall of 2013, Brentwood High School countered with their second lip dub video containing at least one indirect reference to Page High.

Athletics[edit]

The athletic department at Page High School features 18 varsity sports. Most notably, the boys track & field team has competed in ten consecutive state championship meets and the volleyball team has competed in nine consecutive state tournaments.

School songs[edit]

Page High School's official song, known as the Alma Mater, was written by the school's first choir director Jackie Hatcher to the tune of "Annie Lisle", a ballad written in 1857 by Henry Thompson.[88] The song was first adapted as a school song by students at Cornell University in 1870. Another adaptation of the tune can be heard in the 1953 film Titanic and the 1987 film Dirty Dancing.

One of Page High School's two official hymns, "A Thousand Mighty Patriots", was written by Hatcher to the tune of the Harvard University fight song Ten Thousand Men of Harvard. The tune was originally written in 1914 by two Harvard freshman Alfred Putnam and Murray Taylor.[89]

The official fight Song was written and arranged by band director Gary Weaver in 1977. Originally football games were held at nearby College Grove school because Page High lacked a football field. The marching band practiced shows in a neighboring field.

Fight song[edit]

We are the Page Patriots,

We wear the blue and white.

We've got the spirit, listen you'll hear it,

We will stand and fight, fight, fight!

Cheer for the Page Patriots,

We'll sing it loud and clear.

Cheer us on to victory,

The Patriots are here!

Lyrics by Gary Weaver

Alma mater[edit]

(solo) On the southern border of our county,

Reared against the sky,

Proudly stands our Alma Mater,

As the years go by.

Forward ever be our watchward,

Conquer and prevail,

Hail to thee our Alma Mater,

Page High (crowd) all hail!

Lyrics by Jackie Hatcher, Music by Henry Thompson

The Patriot Hymn[edit]

Oh Patriots of Page from far and near,

Come join our happy throng;

We'll sing our Alma Mater's praise,

To her our grateful voices raise!

With heartfelt pride we celebrate,

Her memories hold so dear.

Lyrics by Jackie Hatcher

A Thousand Mighty Patriots[edit]

A thousand mighty Patriots want vict'ry today,

For they know that o'er our rivals old Page holds sway;

So then we'll conquer our rival's team,

And when the game ends we'll sing again 'n again,

A thousand mighty Patriots gained vict'ry today.

Lyrics by Jackie Hatcher, Music by Alfred Putnam and Murray Taylor
