Welcome to Ferndale High!

Welcome to Ferndale High!

Ferndale High School offers a comprehensive core curriculum designed to take incoming students at their individual levels of achievement and provide pathways for growth. A rich elective program that includes courses in agriculture, fine arts, technology, and vocational arts augments the core and required courses of instruction. All students are provided an opportunity to complete University of California and California State University entrance requirements. We offer classroom-based honors and Advanced Placement courses as well as on-line AP courses through University of California College Prep Initiative. With a seven-period instructional day, we are able to maintain scheduling flexibility in our course offerings, provide ample opportunities for enrichment and remediation, and maintain very low student-to teacher ratios.

Thanks to all of you who attended last night’s Board Meeting.

Unfortunately the resolution to place a Facilities Bond on the ballot for Nov. 3 failed with a 3 to 2 vote ( 4 votes are required to place the bond on the ballot). Discussions for how to address the facility needs of our aging buildings have been ongoing for over 15 years and with the two no votes funding will still be unavailable to repair/replace the identified areas of concern.

No Votes – Emil Feierabend and Jerry Hansen
Yes Votes – Stephanie Koch, Kristina Radelfinger, and Ken Richardson

No alternative solutions for the nearly $8 million of recommended facility improvements were provided for future consideration.

In response to questions regarding school board elections:

Emil Feierabend – Term Expires 2015
Jerry Hansen – Term Expires 2017
Stephanie Koch – Term Expires 2017
Kristina Radelfinger – Term Expires 2015
Ken Richardson – Term Expires 2017

The results are in! Five high school students competed in the INNOVATE! Business Challenge Finale last Friday with $8,250 in cash and $3,000 in media services awarded! This Shark Tank-like event featured students presenting their business idea to a panel of five judges and a live audience at The Ingomar Club. Ferndale’s own, Genevieve Regli, won big with her ‘Who’s Your Farmer” idea – Green Grass Veal! As runner-up she won $2,000 in cash and $1,000 in radio ads! Her humane veal concept is a great idea to re-introduce veal to consumers!!! Look for INNOVATE! coming to Ferndale High next January……hey, what’s your idea?! ... See MoreSee Less
