Ferguson High School, Ratnapura

Ferguson High School (Sinhala: ෆර්ගසන් උසස් විද්‍යාලය) is a government girls school situated in the middle of Ratnapura town, Sri Lanka. 

The school that established in 1917 as a Baptist Missionary English School was renamed Ferguson High School in 1924 in recognition of Yeoman services provided to education (Abeyawardana, 2002). It was maintained under the missionary administration till the school was taken over by the government in 1960 (Abeyawardana, 2002). Sirimavo Ratwatte Dias Bandaranaike, the first female Prime Minister of the world, had her early education in this school (Abeyawardana, 2002).

At present, the school has common facilities such as classrooms, laboratories, libraries, playground etc. Classes are conducted in two sections, viz: the Primary Section, which serves students from Grade 1 to 5, and the Secondary Section, which serves students from Grade 6 to 13.
