The hub of the district is the town of Ferndale, located 10 miles north of Bellingham, 100 miles north of Seattle and 40 miles south of Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Mount Baker and the Georgia Strait’s San Juan Islands make this an area of unparalleled natural beauty.  Ferndale offers access to a variety of recreational entertainment, social and cultural pursuits.

Our website provides information to a variety of stakeholders: students, staff, families, news media and community members. We communicate news about schools, programs, achievements of students and staff, opportunities for input into decision making, policies and procedures and much more.

We hope you will join with us to ensure students have the resources they need, are performing at their potential and are ready to be productive citizens in our community.
