Our Purpose Statement
At Ferry Pass Middle School we believe that all students can learn and be successful. Our purpose is to create an environment which will enable each student to understand that learning is a life long process. One of our goals is to provide rigorous academic courses to challenge students in order to prepare them so that they may excel in high school, college, and the workforce. Our second goal is to build relationships with students and their families.
Ferry Pass Middle School believes that we have the responsibility to our students to accept them as individuals, to assess their needs and interests, and to provide a varied well-organized curriculum which will promote positive academic, social , physical, and emotional growth. We strive to create a safe middle school environment with meaningful educational opportunities that motivate students at all levels to achieve at their highest potential. However, we recognize that middle school adolescents are experiencing a transition marked by rapid changes in physical growth, relationships with peers and adults, perception of themselves, and formation of values. In conjunction with the family and community, the ultimate goal of Ferry Pass Middle School is to assist in the development of self confident, self-disciplined learners who can be productive citizens in a global community.
