In 1905, Neoclassical style campus buildings were constructed on the corner of Washington Blvd. and Flower St. In 1935, to honor the school's founder and first principal, John H. Francis was added to the school's name Fifty years after the campus on Washington and Flower was built, it was decided that the high school should be relocated to the San Fernando Valley. In 1957, the new John H. Francis Polytechnic High School campus was built in Sun Valley.
