Ferndale Middle School Student Life

Fine Arts

Music | In 2006, while at a Festival competition judges said “[FMS is] one of the finest Middle School bands they have ever heard.” All FMS music ensembles qualified for state-level competition. FMS also has an outstanding jazz band!

Art | FMS students have had their artwork selected for national competition, many students participate in the annual Detroit Science and Engineering Fair at Cobo Hall, and students have been regular winners in the Midwest Talent Search mathematics competition.

Nearly 25-percent of FMS students are inducted into the FMS National Junior Honor Society for high academic achievement. Students interested in extra homework and studying help can participate in after-school tutoring sponsored by the FHS National Honor Society and Ferndale Youth Assistance.

FMS students collect news and announcements and have formed an Announcement Team! You can hear them on the PA every day!
