John A. Ferguson Senior High School Reviews

By a Current Student on

This School is the best, the teachers are amazing and push you to be the best you can be. I'm a stduent here, IB sophmore. The main reason i wish to continue in the  IB program is so i am able to stay in this school because its not my homeschool. Sure it's over populated but it doesnt change the fact that its one of the best high schools in Florida. The parent who gave the school a bad review doesnt know what s/he is talking about, even with the over population the staff does an amazing job keeping the students under control, yeah they arnt perfect, every highschool around has its problems but Ferguson isnt nearly as bad as it should be with the amount of students it holds.

I love this school, and it's really great, of course it is very overpopulated, about 4,295 students, and Im pretty sure its the largest populated school in dade county, correct me if im wrong. This is a great school with many opportunities, and it is up to the students to take advantage of this great education. Unfortunately, many do not. again, its up to them because the school does a great job, and Im proud to be a Ferguson Falcon:)

i have never heard of this school before but people have told me that is really good and that gives a lot of opportunities to the students. Maybe is over populated a little but that's just a prove that is a really good school.

I think this school is AMAZING ! of course it is over populated because its so good and hes so many benefits for the students , that their parents want them there. :)

There are too many students for the staff to handle. The saying "the left hand never knows what the right hand is doing" is an understatement for this school.  Seems the staff's favorite sayings are ," we are dealing with thousands of children", and "ib  students should know". As though IB students are not children and don't need teaching. I am disgusted with this school. Don't know why we are overcrowded. If people only knew maybe they would stop applying for transfers to this school and the numbers would drop so the staff could actually handle the students it has.
