Ferriday High School Reviews

The school is okay. However, there aren't many opportunities for students. For instance, the school system is very strict on club activities, and high impact learning opportunities, such as educational fieldtrips, etc. When I entered there as a freshman, there were about 10 clubs...however, upon graduating this year, the school only had two clubs. Not only that, but there are only three sports to choose from: football, basketball, and track. Although, even the latter aren't all that great. There tends to be a lot of favoritism within the teams, between the coaches and a few of the team members...so its always the same selection of students getting to play on the court, and/or field...sadly.

Well, being a student from this school, I am a very keen primary source to this review. Ferriday High School is a school I like unother. Though it may have the so called reputation of being a “troubling school” it is actually great with its incredible teachers, amazing diversity, and holds a strong reputation on it’s athletic department.
I've attended Ferriday High School from 9th grade to 12th grade and I can honestly say that I have had the best experience I could imagine. Whenever there was a time I needed help in the past, the school's staff and my fellow students were always there to help me. Ferriday High School is not like all the other schools because, others don't expect us to succeed but every single person attending that school has the potential to become someone great. My school helps students that don't believe in themselves to grow up and be the best person they could be.
