Check out this great Middle Cities Education Association member – Ferndale Public Schools

June 19, 2018

Ferndale Public Schools is four square miles located in southeast Michigan that includes the cities of Oak Park, Ferndale, Pleasant Ridge, and the Charter Township of Royal Oak. Ferndale Schools educates over 3,000 students each year, spread out across an early childcare center, two elementary schools, a middle school, two high schools, and one alternative/adult education program.


Ferndale Schools offers a hometown, small school atmosphere that gives our parents, students, teachers, and community an opportunity to really get to know one another. The district is large enough to provide a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular offerings, but small enough to maximize student participation and maintain a community feel.


Our Central Focus


Ferndale Public Schools' mission is to provide all students with an exceptional education that prepares them for college, careers, and success in a diverse society.


Our Vision


Our vision is to be among the best suburban school districts in the state. We will make sure all students, including special education students, are part of a supportive community and are educated to achieve their life goals, starting with success at the college or career of their choice. We will provide high-quality, well-rounded education programs; offer culturally rich arts and music programs; support competitive athletic programs; engage students in contemporary science, technology and humanities; instill pride in our students, staff and families; and challenge ourselves and our students to attain the highest educational and citizenship standards. Students will learn in updated and well-maintained schools that are staffed with fully engaged teachers and professionals. We are intent on graduating engaged global citizens who give back to their communities. We will celebrate our diversity, knowing that our students will thrive in a world that looks much like our community.


Our Philosophy


All students can learn what they need if we have high expectations and they have the right support. Ferndale Schools is committed instilling a love of learning into our students and making them ready for college, careers, and lifelong education.
