Ferndale District and Curriculum

Residents of Ferndale will attend either Ferndale Public Schools (FPS) or Hazel Park Schools (HPS). Hazel Park also serves many students with varying disabilities throughout their traditional schools and at two specific sites intended to serve students who need more individualized attention. Jardon’s Community Advantage Program (CAP) assists post-secondary students, with mild to moderate disabilities, to enter the workforce out of school. Its curriculum consists of work-based learning, community involvement, health and physical fitness, social relationships, and life skills. Both districts also provide residents with adult education and offer learning opportunities for various developmental needs.

We currently cover the following Ferndale-area school districts: Ferndale Public Schools and Hazel Park Schools.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ferndale District Curriculum

While each district has implemented changes from the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts and mathematics, the districts provide curricular activities that excel current state and federal guidelines. Examples of excellence are FPS’ John F. Kennedy Elementary School (K-6) and HPS’ Jardon School (18-21 years). The former is a magnet school with an Open Classroom concept; students engage in independent and constructive learning, as well as the use of project-based learning.

In the traditional school setting, each district’s preschool and primary curriculum focuses on foundational skill building and character education. Instruction focuses on literacy (reading, writing, speaking, listening), mathematical skills, social studies, science, art, music, and physical education. Specifically, FPS’ Theodore Roosevelt Primary School (K-3) is an Open Classroom environment, and its partner school, Calvin Coolidge Intermediate School (4-6), fosters self-efficacy skills, art instruction, and technological literacy. Students at CCIS collect artifacts throughout the year and complete a portfolio to present at end-of-year conferences.

Keeping Informed: Recent Ferndale Educational News

  • School Purchases New Kiln with Aid of Grant - Lisa Miller, a visual arts instructor at Ferndale High School, recently received a $750 Michigan Youth Arts grant toward purchasing a new kiln. The students have been without one of their kilns since it broke down two years ago. The other is in need of replacement, because it is 55 years old.
  • Ferndale Alumnus Awarded Role on Broadway - Jawan Jackson, of Ferndale High School’s graduating class of 2005, is off to New York to play Melvin Franklin in “Motown: The Musical” on Broadway. Franklin was The Temptations’ bass singer, and Jackson earned the part through several auditions. He credits FHS for providing him with the many skills he needed to obtain this role and pursue his dream.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Community Promises to Local Students

In 2009, the state of Michigan created Promise Zone legislation to improve communities, work force, and students’ educational opportunities. The Promise Zone is a statewide program that assists high school graduates, in specific areas, with free tuition to Michigan colleges and universities. This incentive began with the 2005 Kalamazoo Promise, which awarded tuition scholarships to public school graduates, with the aid of private donors. The program was an instant success and the impact immeasurable. Enrollment in Kalamazoo Public Schools increased the year after the program’s announcement. Parents and the community began to take more interest in improving the school system. The program’s design is two-fold: It is an incentive for more students to graduate from high schools in difficult regions, and students’ receiving knowledge-based skills in college will improve the future labor market. After the success of the Kalamazoo Promise, many cities have implemented their own promises. The Promise Zone is a powerful tool to connect students and communities, increase graduation rates, improve skills, and enhance interest in public schools.
