The teachers at this school do their best to help you learn and get to graduation. They help you before and after school if you need it and they are always offering to help you. At Ferndale the teachers can get along with any student and can control the classroom at all times. They work hard to get through the criteria and work harder to be sure that the students understand the criteria they are learning.

Ferndale High is a wonderful school, bullying is not really an issue because we are all so close. I personally feel very safe at school, and I know others do to. Ferndale is one of the few places left where people in the community as well as the schools feel 100% safe. The health programs and resources we have are not offered all the time, but if you request it, it is made immediately available. Ferndale High is an amazing school and I am proud to be a part of it.
New teachers are smart, few care about positive change.
