My daughter is on her second year at this school as a sophomore. I have been and am very happy with the school. My daughter is doing great. She's on the cross country and track team with Coach Ryan Raposo! He is a fabulous coach I am very happy with her academic and athletic success. Coach Raposo has a lot to do with her success. THANK YOU!!!
Well I am currently in John A. Ferguson and let me tell you, our school is HUGE!! We have really good teachers here and you are guaranteed an education that is actually worth your time. The only thing that kind of sucks is my Algebra 2 teacher. He's strict. But other than that, GO FALCONS!!!
I've been to many schools such as Sunset and Felix Varela, and they were the worst schools i'd ever been to. After transferring to Ferguson 2 years ago, I've finally found a place I can call home. The teachers are amazing (especially if you're taking Honors/AP classes) and the students are friendly and sociable. I'm now a Senior, and I'm really going to miss all this school has given me. I plan on visiting even after I graduate. No Goal is Too High Where Falcons Fly :)
This school has surpassed my expectations my daughter is a junior and is in the IB strand the principal is a fairly new principal doing a terrific job and the VP's all are key components to why that school is so well run my Daugthers IB lead teacher Mrs Graham is wonderful and her assistant Mrs Suca they are the best and with out all the bragging and financial backing that other IB schools have they are doing a wonderful job so I would love to see this school win and think of how it could be put to good use by such a terrific school that doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
Love this school! Just finished my Freshman year here and it's great! All the teachers I had were great and I really love the whole academy factor The school is huge, so naturally it takes longer than 5 minutes to walk to class, but I havent met one teacher who hasn't given extra time, as long as you don't go overboard! Also, there are SO many clubs, and the uniform is very basic, but the uniform itself isn't bad, three different color shirts, polo or button-down, and two different color pants. Also, the security is really nice and as long as your not doing anything outright stupid, you'll be fine. All in all, I loved my first year, and I would suggest this school to everybody!
J. E. Ferguson very good school my daugther she is on I B program excelent school my other daughter go this year to ferguson I recomende ferguson.
I am currently a junior at JAFSH.The school is just pretty bad. It is such a mission to walk through the halls, with so many students and not only that , but they give you 5 minutes to get to class. Thats not enough time, considering the amount of people.The school cares more about tardies and uniform than the actual education. Students actually prefer being absent to school than getting a late pass and serving detention or saturday school. Every year the school and administration get worse. The teachers on the other hand, most of them enjoy their job and can teach pretty well.
I graduated last year from ferguson, and let me tell you it is a great school, I loved it couldn't hope for a better school, kit has amazing extracurricular activities and teachers are really good too, the office might be little hard to work with sometimes but nothing too bad, pretty much the best high school around
Ferguson has a great IB program. Just tht im not quiet positive about the bullying.
I'm a current student at JAF and I most say it is terrible the administration is rude they have their priorities in the wrong place the students do nothing but bully and ridicule each other. Some of the teachers don't even seen like teaching is cut out for them. The staff in the attendance office needs an attitude check. And it's clear that they don't take safe measures when it comes to keeping others safe they keep students for the founding that runs out before they even get to the middle of the year.
My son is in 9th grade at JAF and he loves his school. When we have to communicate with a teacher or a counselor, they always are for you to help you. The bad experience that we always have is when we need to call or to go to the front desk office, the personnel are so rude. I think they have to pay more attention to this matter because this causes many negative impressions for the entire school. I hope our daugther loves JAF too.
My daughter and I love JAF and most of the teachers motivate their students. I am impressed with the way the monitor the progress of their students and counselors are their to help alone the way. The only bad experience we have has at the school is with the front office personnel. They definately should get a class on being well mannered.
This school has been great to my daughter. She had such a terrible experience at Archimedean Middle School. Now she actually loves going to school everyday... You can't be happier as a parent.
The school is just average. Good luck trying to get a hold of your child's counselor or anyone in the office for that matter. Very rude office administrators.
pienso que es la mejor escuela y estoy agradecida, de que mi hijo este estudiando en ella y se gradue ahora, creo que los maestros son excelentes, y espero que mi otra hija pueda estudiar en ella tambien
I am aproud parent of this school, teachers are so interested in their students, they always respond to my concerns by e-mail, they show that they really care for children with dissabilities. This year is my son's last year and all I wanted to say is thank you for being there for our children, you are doing an excellent job! Jackie Pineres
My daughter attends the 12th grade IB program, and she loves JAF and the extra curricular activities. She is very pleased with her teachers, their devotion and willingness to help. This school has improved tremendously since my child started here. My son is now a freshman at JAF. :)
I Currently Attend Ferguson SHS && ive got to say there is no other school like it. The Security is above all the best thing they have because of the safety they want to maintain. Teachers teach, and even tutor students and push them towards a better future.
It has great extracurricular activies, safety and discipline. Extraordinary teachers willing to go the extra step to help a student. Faculty and counserlos very helpful. I'm proud my son atteds John A. Ferguson Sernior High School. Dory
Ferguson is a new, fairly big school but everyone there is friendly, and goal oriented. My daughter is in the IB program and we are very impressed with the program. The school has a lot to offer academically & athletically. No goal is to high where falcons fly! This is the school's motto, Go Falcons!!
