At ferris high school, where the school is so big, you walk past people everyday you don't know. The thing about that, is you have your people, people you grew up with, and people just like you. All of them stick with you throughout. No need for drama with other people. You cling to eachother, do everything together. School activities, even more fun with them!
The teachers are wonderful also... well, for the most part. Throughout my years there, I realized some teachers I connected really well with, others...not so much. Some want things exactly their way, or no way at all, others listen and help you find alternate routes to your problems. High school wasn't anything like the way high school musical portrayed it to be, but I still enjoyed learning new things everyday and going at the pace I felt was best.

I admired the courtesy of the faculty and the passion every teacher had for his or her subject area. Teachers were devoted to their respective curriculums and were always willing to assist students with their work.

Under the dedicated supervision of security guards, I never felt in danger. I always had a sense of reassurance that safety was prioritized above all else. It was regarded with the utmost care and diligence by all faculty members.

The sheer variety of sports, clubs, and other extracurricular activities offered by Ferris High School provided immense diversity to the student population and resulted in a feeling of community and fellowship with those that shared mutual interests.

What I would like to see changed is the passing period having an increased duration. It seems that the administration responsible for the duration of this time is unaware that students must also have time enough to at least use the restroom and make it on time to their respective classes.
I have absolutely loved attending Ferris High School. I am very involved in the school through sports, music, leadership, and various clubs. I feel I have recieved an amazing high school experience while attending Ferris. I really enjoy the atmosphere and I feel that the whole school is a big, supportive community. Whenever we have large school events, you will find many students and faculty members at the events, supporting the school. Win or lose, we always stay together. The teacher strive hard to make the students have the best experience. Most of the teachers I have had made an effort to make sure every student was getting the help they needed. Overall, Ferris is an amazing school filled with supportive, and helpful people.
