Welcome to Ferndale Public Schools
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our fantastic school district.
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 Schools' mission is to provide all students with an exceptional education that prepares them for college, careers, and success in a diverse society.
Vision (Crafted Through Equity Work)
At FPS, we are a school family of continual learners. We support each and every student to develop their purpose, plan, and passion. We encourage and honor dialogue about the histories, cultures, and goals of our communities. We actively and intentionally facilitate equitable access and representation, meaningful participation, and high expectations for ALL.
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.
