Student Learning Environment

Individual student progress and success is closely monitored through the collaboration of school personnel. After a brief whole class instructional lesson, additional teaching and support of student learning is accomplished in a small group setting. All students receive additional coaching and enrichment opportunities in the areas of mathematics and English/Language Arts during the daily “W-I-N (What I Need) Time”.

Teaching 21st Century Learners

Integrating technology across the curriculum enhances the learning experience. Students are offered opportunities to blog, create digital presentations, research, utilize iPads and e-Readers, and demonstrate knowledge with the use of ViewSonic interactive boards. Chromebooks are available for all staff as well as students in grades 3-6 to use in the classroom. Additionally, all our classrooms have  document cameras, and a wireless keyboard and mouse.

Be Safe, Respectful, and Responsible

Meeting the needs of all students by addressing their individual academic, social, economic and psychological needs are a daily focus. All students participate in social skills and social thinking lessons to proactively ensure a compassionate and accepting school climate. Students are rewarded for their positive actions and helping to make Ferber a GREAT school.
