We know that Ferris High School competed in boys basketball. It is quite possible that baseball and track may
have been part of the athletic program as well. Currently we do not have any team records or coach's names to share
with you on this page.

We are also certain that, like many small schools, the folks of Ferris valued a good, well-rounded education for their
children..We are curious as well if band, chorus, and several club activites were offered to the children who attended Ferris
High. If you have any of this information to share with us, please follow the directions below.
Our sincere gratitude goes out to Roberta Van Breisen, a long-time contributor to the Glory Days website,
who discovered this high school through extensive research on the internet. Thank you Roberta, nicely done!
