The staff at Fergus High School has done nothing but support me through every endeavor. Athletics and extracurricular activities are very promoted as well as community involvement. Fergus offers many different clubs that allow students to socialize and be involved with the school and community. Overall, Fergus High School would be a great school for any students who enjoy healthy athletics, encouraging teachers, and a competitive scholastic environment.

Fergus is a great school! There’s lots of fun and loving teachers and staff there. Our counselor especially... she’s a gem! I wouldn’t change a thing.
Fergus High School in Lewistown Montana has many things to offer, however there are some down falls. I attended Fergus for almost three years of my high school. Some of the best parts about the school are the teachers. They all strive and encourage you to do the best that you can do as a student so that you will succeed in the work force after school. Another great aspect is the sports and associations. They offer many different sports and clubs for every teenager; FFA was a huge part of my adolescence. Some of the downfalls of the school is the communication. The staff had a hard time communicating students needs and helping student struggling in different classes. The school also had many cliches. These cliches made teenagers sometimes feel out of the group. Over all I believe that Fergus was a great school, and just like many others they have their downfalls.
