The school is average for an elementary school. We bought in the Ferry Farm district because of the reputation of the school. Like most schools, the teachers vary in style and quality. We have had teachers who were wonderful, receptive and challenging and others whose style was not a good fit. The principal, unfortunately, is lacking professionalism and an interest in knowing the families and children. There was a time when this school would have gotten 5 stars but with the leadership, it is truly lacking. The school counselor is kind and loving toward the children which is a huge positive for the school.

Ferry Farm is a community school that prepares its students to be life-long learners. Ms. Lewis, principal, is awesome and the staff is top notch! They nurture and expect nothing less than a student's personal best. I am most impressed with how much emphasis is placed on building the character of the students. Cooperation, respectful behavior, and personal responsibility are traits that are constantly being emphasized and taught. The school welcomes parent involvement, with so many exciting activities offered through the PTA.

My son is in his third year at the school, and he has thrived. He mastered reading all through the first grade, has had excellent teachers each year, and the principal, Mrs. Lewis, is top notch! There is a good diversity of students here, and the parent involvement / PTA is excellent.

I can not express in words how wonderful my experience with Ferry Farm has been. My daughter attended for 4 years, and had excellent, involved, talented teachers each year. The principal is fantastic. The after school programs are very exciting, with enrichment activities offered to provide students with new skills, or hobbies. Parent involvement is top notch. The school is always organized, clean, and the classrooms are large and conducive to learning. Class sizes were small. Ferry Farm also conducts many opportunities to get together with game nights, ice cream socials, etc. We were very sad to have to move away from such a great school. After experiencing the best, it is going to be hard for another school to live up to Ferry Farms standards! Reenee Cochran
