Marion-Franklin High School (MFHS, Marion) is a four-year high school (grades 9-12) located on the south side of Columbus, Ohio, at 1265 Koebel Road. Marion-Franklin is one of 17 traditional high schools in the Columbus City Schools district. The school colors are red and white, with black as an unofficial color. The school mascot is the Red Devil.


There are four administrators at Marion-Franklin High School: a head principal, an assistant principal (in charge of junior and senior classes), an administrator in charge of sophomores and a principal in charge of the freshman academy.






Several district employees were caught altering attendance records for struggling students in order to improve performance ratings. Because of this, former principal Pamela K. Diggs was fired in early 2014. [3]
