Our Mission & Vision
In Ferris ISD, we understand the vital role education plays in the strength and vitality of our country; and we are committed to providing our students with educational and extra-curricular opportunities that will foster their growth and development. From the classroom to the gridiron and from the band hall to the ag farm, our Yellowjackets are sharpening their skills to compete on a world stage.
FISD recognizes the complex challenge of empowering students to succeed in a world of unprecedented change, a world where our graduates are filling jobs that did not even exist when they entered high school. We are committed to embracing that challenge. FISD is a family, a community, a team; and we dedicate ourselves and our resources to providing every child with every opportunity to become more tomorrow than even they imagined possible today.
Ferris ISD is a technology-rich school district with classroom instruction and extracurricular opportunities designed to promote creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving; and inspire students as they work collaboratively with their peers.
