The mission of the Ferryway School is to provide a safe and secure learning environment where students are able to work towards reaching their maximum potential. Staff members strive to create an educational community which both nurtures and challenges the student population.
The Math, Science, and Technology Magnet emphasizes the skills and processes of all academic areas, with a focus on the integration of mathematics, science, and computer skills to enable students to comprehend the world of scientific inquiry. The Massachusetts Science Frameworks are incorporated into the design of the classroom and science learning center activities. This program sets high standards for highly motivated students to pursue in-depth studies in scientific processes and to acquire an appreciation of the impact science has on our lives.
Parents are encouraged to play an integral role in the educational process both at home and at school. An active and dedicated Ferryway PTO provides important support and resources to both students and staff.
Nationally Recognized Science and Technology Curriculum
For two years in a row, the Ferryway School was selected to receive the competitive HP Technology for Teaching Leadership Grant award. The award package included a 15 tablet computer cart, projectors, and International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) professional development.
Leadership Grants were a direct result of Ferryway staff creating and piloting innovative technology driven PBUs (Project Based Units) – The Saugus Ironworks Great Adventure and Layers-Biome Breakthrough. Visit the Saugus Ironworks wiki for more information.
