Ferndale High School

A message from Principal Jeff Gardner:

Greetings Golden Eagle Families!

It is with the utmost humility and eagerness that I begin my journey with the Ferndale community as the new high school principal of FHS. In my short time here I have quickly learned that we have an incredibly hard working staff and excellent programs to offer our students. At Ferndale HS our students have a multitude of pathways they can explore, and later choose to follow as they ready themselves for life beyond their senior year. On-time graduation is a big focus for us at FHS, with the caveat that graduation is basically the next step for setting up a productive and fulfilling life. Ferndale High School students will be encouraged to think about life after high school with the goal of creating as many options for personal and academic growth as they can in the way of career and/or post-secondary education while they on their high school journey.

And it is with a similar growth mindset that we believe we can always improve our practices as well as our school programs to better meet the needs of all FHS students. With a Ferndale High School diploma we want our students to know and firmly believe they can reach for the sky and beyond.  Please feel free to contact me or any of our administrative team to share ideas and thoughts that you have about what works best for your student(s). We are in this endeavor together and our goals for your student(s) are probably very similar to yours. We want all students to find daily success and to grow their grit in taking on each challenge that comes their way. 

It is with a shared vision that I ask you for your participation in helping us to support our students in the very best education they can receive at the high school level. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
