My oldest son went to school at Ferrucci 6 years ago and the school was wonderful. Now my younger son is there and its terrible we are considering switching him to somewhere else. Many on the staff have no respect either for the students or parents.

Ferrucci is a wonderful school! My youngest is there now, and his older brother went there also. The teachers care about the students, and the administration is involved.

I believe the teacher quality is poor. Since my son has been attending I have had several issues with Teachers not doing what is needed for my child. The teachers have poor attitudes and do not feel the need to communicate with parents over issues with their students. I am tired of being the bigger person when it comes to dealing with the issues from the teachers. I am very close to removing my child from the school because of the teachers.

I pulled my son from the Bethel school district and I'm so glad I did. Ferrucci had a completely different atmosphere. The teachers took responsibility for their success and failures; they actually tried to teach their students, the kids were expected to behave, jocks (as opposed to delinquents) were admired... This school was able to get my student back on-track and his self-esteem was restored in the process. My kid is happy and thriving once again - thankfully. Keep up the good work and thank you!

Ferrucci Jr High is a wonderful school that has helped me become more involved in the world around me. Whether it is the world, the school, or my class, the leadership skills I have gained are invaluable and are because of the learning eniroment that I was introduced to at Ferrucci. I am very glad that I switched to Ferrucci from Ballou.

I am really appreciative of the Home Work Club that Ferrucci is offering this year. This has helped my daughter immensely improve not only her grades but her attitude toward school. Keep up the good work.

I am a new parent to the public school system and so far, I am very impressed with Ferrucci. The level of work and communication from the teachers has been wonderful, so far.

If your child needs any kind of extra help, has a different learning style, or an attention disorder, this school acts like it wants to care and do something about it, but the strict guidelines they must follow, and the lack of resources make it nearly impossible to make a positive difference in a student's education and study skills. They offer the basic sports, study clubs, etc., but there is no cheerleading, drill, or gymnastics. Kids this age need extra firm discipline and consequences and it seems like the school just isn't enforcing the rules, dress code, or conduct of behavior seriously enough. Again, probably due to a lack of help or programs. Parent-school communication has improved over the last 3 yrs. though.

I haven't been too impressed with Ferrucci JR High. It would seem that they care but I don't think so. You have to keep on top of them. I would definatley rate Wildwood Elementary superior to Ferrucci. My son has accomodations, but I feel the teachers can't teach as they need on certain subjects because of the WASSL, like spelling rules. The WASSL is not good and really holds proper education back from what it used to be.

Ferrucci Jr High has a solid educational basis. The teachers are fun and very involved with students and available to parent input and requests. They are interactive with students and families which I appreciate. The band, choir and orchestra programs are excellent.

Ferrucci is an awesome school and I'm so glad that I switched my student from Aylen to Ferrucci because the learnig environment is so much more positive and they really do work hard at helping each individual student. Keep up the good work.

Ferrucci jr. high is a school full of racist teachers and discriminative students and really needs an attitude check. For the most part there is nothing about ferrucci jr. high that I would want my student to see. Ferrucci jr. Highs principal isnt any better.
