The Ferris High School campus modernization is just one of the many projects that Spokane voters approved by passing the 2009 school bond.  The $332 million district-wide plan includes renovations or modernizations of four elementary schools; completely new ventilation, roofing and flooring upgrades at nine elementary schools, safety, security and technology updates for the entire district; and building, field or playground improvements for all schools. For information regarding these or any other construction projects, please contact our Capital Projects office at (509) 354-5775.


 

  Ferris High School Modernization Project Facts

Location: Ferris High Schools sits on the corner of 37th and Regal on the south side of Spokane. The school first opened its doors in 1963 with approximately 800 students in grades 8-10. Today, Ferris has capacity for nearly 1,800 students in grades 9-12.

The 2003 school improvement bond made way for the construction of a new 54,000 square foot gymnasium and fitness center on the Ferris campus. The $14.9 million project replaced a facility that was undersized for the population and program needs. Designed by NAC|Architecture and built by general contractor Levernier Construction, both of Spokane. That facility opened in April of 2007.
