Statement of Philosophy:
Ferndale Middle School provides a comprehensive IB Middle year's program which embraces the middle school philosophy. We provide a nurturing environment which prepares students for the transition from middle school to high school and from high school to college and career. We envision Ferndale Middle School as a place where stakeholders promote responsible action within and beyond the school community.
Ferndale Middle School is becoming an exceptional learning establishment where students are proved a rigorous, holistic, academic environment which will enable them to become lifelong learners.
We, Ferndale Middle School, are committed to providing a safe, supportive, and professional learning environment for students. As a result, our students will become responsible, productive citizens in a diverse world.
History of Ferndale:
Ferndale Middle School began as High Point Junior High School on South Main Street. A new school was built and students moved in December of 1931. The name changed from High Point Junior High School to Ferndale Junior High School. In the 80's, the school again changed names to Ferndale Middle School. The school was also renovated at that time to add another gym and additional classrooms.
In 2007, renovations were completed on eight new classrooms, a cafeteria expansion and an intensive technology upgrade. Then, in 2012, our school received a complete HVAC system. Despite many changes over the years, we are looking forward to the future at Ferndale Middle School!
