Mission Statement

Vision Statement
The Ferndale Area School District will strive to provide a safe and nurturing community for excellent teaching and learning where students prepare for a life of continual learning, and acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to solve problems, communicate effectively, and be responsible citizens in a constantly changing environment.
Three guideposts for our vision are:
This is "OUR" house.
Every student, Every day.
Life Ready, Set, Go! (for the Junior-Senior High School)
Shared Values
  • We believe that all students can learn.
  • We expect students to learn the skills, concepts, and values necessary for them to be successful
    in both their personal and professional lives.
  • We ensure the academic success and personal growth of all students through modeling and
    instruction by providing individualized opportunities. Children/students are put first.
  • We hold ourselves to a standard of excellence in our professional practices.
  • We will promote a caring environment of respect, teamwork, integrity, and accountability.
The Ferndale Area JSHS has modified our Mode of Instruction to full virtual for the JSHS only from February 11 to and including February 19, 2021.  All students are to log onto their Zoom classes as scheduled and complete assignments assigned by their instructors. 
Students return to face-to-face learning on Monday, February 22, 2021.
GJCTC students may attend if they have their own transportation on 2/12, but not on 2/15; the GJCTC is closed to students for a planned In-Service Training Day.  Beginning 2/16, the GJCTC students will be picked up and dropped off at their homes as previously arranged.
