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 Goal

Our vision is to be among the best suburban school districts in the state. We will make sure all students are part of a supportive community and are educated to achieve their life goals, starting with success at the college 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.
