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.
