    Good teachers and a nice school. There bully program is good and it's enforce. Principal is a good role model. Office staff is kind and do a well job great work. Guidance Council is helpful and nice. The two head girls from Kids club are awesome. My son likes being there. All of my son's teachers are wonderful I see lots of improvement in his education. But at the end of last year there was bugs reported in my son's class room it sounded like cockroaches in the closet inside the empty boxes at the end of the year.(month before) The teacher reported it I heard they were going to have it clean in the summer. They usually have two camps running out of that school during the summer. I haven't heard of any problems this yr.

    This is my son's first year in public school after our move from the city and the catholic school system. My son loves Ferderbar and his teachers. After talking with his teachers I find them to be educated and motivated. My son told me his teachers make learning fun. He stated they are strict however they are not mean. Great School!!

    Great School! My son's 3rd Grade Teacher is completely organized. I just love her. I think 3rd grade is the real test my son is finally being challenged. I'm glad we got a teacher that is going to put him to that challenge.

    My child started at Ferderbar in the 3rd grade and I can't begin to say enough about the school and the staff. The teachers in 3rd and 4th grade are amazing. The office staff is always very helpful and I especially like the safety measurements the school has taken with the camera outside and the children only coming out the one main door in the front now. Great School.

    Wonderful school caring and supportive staff best teachers in Bucks. I have 2 children who were lucky enough to graduate from Ferderbar and my youngest is currently in 5th grade and graduating this year. I would recommend this school and Neshaminy School District to anyone they are head and shoulders above the rest of Bucks.

    Maybe and 'OK' school if your child is above average - but do not ask for any additional support - it takes FOREVER and is only the bare necessities to slide your child through school. . .

    My family and I moved here from Palmyra NJ a couple of months ago. I am terribly disappointed in Ferderbar's academics. This school is so far behind where my daughter left off in NJ. The classrooms are overcrowded and the work they are giving halfway through the year in 2nd grade my daughter did already at the beginning of 1st grade in NJ. I wish I'd never moved my children to PA.

    I went from catholic school to Ferderbar. Best move we could have made! The school is wonderful. Teachers are great. Great art program and choral group. My daughter is soaring. Do not hesitate with this school you will be glad you put your children in it.

    Three of my children attended Ferderbar until an unexpected event required us to move. I miss this school dearly and so do my children! I had one in kindergarten and twins in second grade. Compared to the school that they are attending now...its like comparing apples to oranges. Ferberbar was everything you could expect in a public school and more. The teachers and staff were amazingly nice and caring. The students were respectful and the school immaculate the home and school association was very involved. I miss it so much and I HIGHLY recommend this school in your moving into the Trevose/Feasterville area.

    Teachers are very supportive and give individual attention during lunch and recess. Instrumental available 3rd - 5th grade. Great choral program. Very attentive and caring teachers. 4th grade level works as a community and does alot of combined activities. Quality academics-not alot of fluff solid basics.
