A Welcome from new FMS Principal Seth Petty

I appreciate the chance to serve as the new Ferndale Middle School principal. Before coming to Ferndale Middle School, I have been working as a building principal for the last five years. I am bringing with me a track record of improving student achievement and reducing suspensions, with experiences ranging from a National Blue Ribbon School to schools previously on the State of Michigan’s priority list and state’s school closure list before making some dramatic turn arounds. At the heart of this success is my dedication to developing strong relationships with families, students, staff and community partners. 
 
Superintendent Bazzi has a vision that inspired me to accept this position. I look forward to both supporting and implementing this vision at FMS. Ferndale Middle School has a strong foundation in place, and I look forward to working with vigor to improve upon student achievement while creating a positive school climate and a safe and nurturing environment for students.

Let’s Get It Started.
