About FUEL

When our Second Graders transition to the Ferndale Upper Elementary School (3rd - 5th Grade) they benefit from a more focused curriculum that challenges everyone to ask questions, seek answers, and develop leadership skills. Parental involvement is a key component of this program, fostering a partnership between school and home. Parents regularly volunteer inside the classroom, for school events or provide enriching support for their child at home with home-school projects.

Ferndale Upper Elementary is also the new home to Ferndale Lower Elementary Montessori.

Montessori is a multi-age educational model for self-guided learners
