“All students who took the SAT practice test at Fordson this past Saturday should come to the Fordson auditorium this Thursday, March 7 at 6:00 pm to get the results of the practice test and to hear strategies on how to perform better on the real SAT test next time. The parents are highly encouraged to attend with their child.”
Greetings Fordson Community,
Creating a school environment where all people are treated with respect and courtesy is part of our daily routine at Fordson High School. More than 2,700 students and almost 200 staff members use these principles as they interact with each other to create a welcoming school environment for all. Unfortunately, on occasion, an individual situation may occur that disrupts our normal routine and expectations.
On Friday morning a student became agitated in class and used profane language to express their frustration with a substitute teacher. Fortunately, no one was injured and no physical altercation occurred but the verbal rant did continue to escalate and the student was asked to leave the classroom. The substitute teacher was also removed from the classroom so that school administration could investigate the details of how the situation occurred.
At Fordson, we know this isolated incident does not represent the real culture and climate in the school or the typical behavior of our students. We also understand that in any work or school environment personalities can sometimes conflict and events in our personal life can influence our behaviors. This can result in a situation quickly rising to a level of frustration far beyond a rational response.
I wanted to share this information to assure all parents and community members that what occurred today at our school is not the typical behavior of our students or staff. The actions of a single person should not reflect the many accomplishments of our students both in and out of the classroom.

Greetings Fordson Community,
There was an unfortunate incident at the October 18 soccer game at Dearborn High. The Dearborn High Administration has been working in collaboration with Central Administration, Fordson Administration, and Dearborn Police to resolve the situation; here’s some more information found on the DHS website.
In every community, the youth’s voice has been limited and no change can be made. The Dearborn Youth Affairs Commission is an opportunity to make yourself heard. The DYAC was created by Mayor Jack O’Reilly and the vision for this group was to seek change in the community and ensure that people’s voices are heard and changes were made for the better. Only select leaders from the community are chosen to be a part of the DYAC. From attending town hall meetings to hosting the city-wide event: Dearborn’s Got Talent for all talent to be shown, we look to honor our ways, by making it all about the people. Our city is in a crisis where our youth has decreased in involvement on political action and community engagement. Most of our commitment has now been from the older generations. However, now it is time for that demographic to change. The younger generation has been given a chance to answer the call to act and make a difference. So, are you up to making a difference in your community?
