Interim Principal Roger Smith

Roger Smith has rejoined the Ferndale Family after a recent retirement as Ferndale High School Principal in 2017, where he had also served as vice principal for a number of years.

Mr. Smith has a bachelor's degree in K-12 Music Education from Wayne State University and a master's degree in Educational Leadership from Oakland  University.

"My vision is to provide a well-rounded middle school education in a safe and nurturing environment," says Mr. Smith, "one that encompasses high academic expectations and provides a rigorous and engaging curriculum while inspiring a passion for learning.
