2013 Ferndale School District is undergoing major changes and should be avoided for the next few years. An elementary school is closing, the 6th grade is moving to the middle school, class sizes are increasing and special education is not under strong leadership. Skyline will have an interim principal in 2013 which brings some hope to that school for development of a school community. It is also hoped that the major changes in FSD will result in overall improvement, but in general the mood in Ferndale is one of resentment and distrust.
5 of mine have attended this school, and it has always been great for them! The teachers are excellent and supporting, the extra activites offered are wonderful! Brilliant school.
I've lived all over the world, and my kids have been to many schools (we are former military). I've got to say that this school doesn't offer very much at all to the children. I was very disappointed. Not to mention, as former military the school administrators were not very understanding of my children's "delicate" situation (having gone through multiple deployments, neighbors passing away, etc...). And part-time kindergarten, and preschool for "native" children only? Are you serious? Who in the world has heard of such a thing? Not impressed in the least.
We have a great school that truly reaches and teaches every student at our school. We have a great group of actively involved parents at our school who work together for the students, staff and families at skyline.
This school has been amazing in my opinion. They offer many 'extra' activities for students who excell in certain areas such as 'math olympiad', 'battle of the books', etc. The office staff is friendly, helpful, and always on top of things. My child loved the school and was very sad to leave it, as were we.
