Ferndale High School has a good academic program. They focus on teaching you the right things you can hold on to for life. I've learned some life lessons while attending there by participating in extra-curricular activities, such as sports and band. Managing my time while maintaining good grades was my main priority!

My experience at Ferndale High school was memorable and if I could go back in time to do it all over again I would. What I liked most about Ferndale High was the diversity within the school. I was able to learn more about different cultures and make many friends of different ethnicities and races. Ferndale High could improve on more school fundraising activities that will not only raise money for the schools and charities we invest in, but also keep the student body involved with the school activities as well.
What I loved about Ferndale High School, is the simple fact that they never gave up on you they were like another set of parents to all students. They pushed you until they knew you were ready for the next challenging thing in all subjects, and to top it off they made it fun all at the same time, making you want to learn more and more about the subject at hand.
