Ferris High School Reviews

I am currently completing my last year of school as a senior at Ferris High School, and it has not been easy due to doubling in course classes, having my junior and senior classes all in one year, but I am proud to say that I have accomplished all of my goals thanks to the help of my teachers and counselors. I have put an extreme effort in pursuing my goal of graduating one year early in order to be one step closer in starting my college journey. Ferris High School has helped me learn that every goal is possible of accomplishing as long as extreme determination and effort is put into pursuing it. Ferris High school will definitely leave its mark in my life even after I graduate.

I entered as a Junior, there were no complications, staff as well as students were welcoming. The counselors are very helpful with anything, they are always making sure that there is nothing wrong. There were no fights like in other schools, it’s a real calm environment. The football team is not the best I would say, but if you’re looking to play soccer, go ahead, as they mostly end up in 1st, but overall all sports are great.
The teachers and staff were all very supportive of the students. The school provided a ready environment for all students whether they were involved in sports, fine arts, or if they were academic students.

The sports program is amazing the coaching staff always brings out the best in the students.


The band program as well, recieved many awards for both marching and concert.


Our choir also recieved many awards for soloists and choral music.
