Spending most of my high school career here was pretty fun, I feel like I did the best I could when I attended. Although, I feel as though I wasn't given as much "push to succeed energy" I felt like I was there only to get my education out of the way. Only a couple courses made me exited to learn and grow my knowledge. Every student is different however. The environment was amazing I felt like i could talk to anyone. It was an amazing experience to have fun and meet new people and find what I wanted to do in life. My only concern was that sometimes it was hard to follow certain curriculum, but other than that It was a good institution to attend!

It's an alright school. The teachers I've had were very kind and I had fun being in their class. However, some students complained about other teachers I never had and I fear that some aren't having a good experience in Ferris High School. Overall, this school serves its purpose to teach students, there is some good teacher and that's all I can really say about it.
