Part of Mission School District #75, Established in 1893, Ferndale was originally a one room schoolhouse. As the population grew the school was closed and relocated twice. The present school was built in 1968 and while the school closed briefly in 1985, it was re-opened due to community protest. Closing its doors in 2008, Ferndale hosted a celebration, remembering the many generations of families that attended the school. Ferndale believed that all students have the ability to learn, each is unique and has their own strengths, have different ways to learn at varying rates, and need to strive to reach their personal best. The school was a loved place with an atmosphere that ensured a quality education and wholesome social upbringing of the students.
