Furman High School is Madera Unified's

Independent Study Program


Welcome to Furman High School. I am privileged to serve as your principal for our students and staff. Furman is a great place for students to learn, grow, and experience success. We are an innovative and progressive alternative high school that serves our students through an independent study model. Our teachers and staff are professionals, who are caring and want your child to have a successful academic experience. We strive to provide the best academic experiences by using the most effective instructional strategies, providing learning experiences outside of the classroom and forming personal relationships with our students. Throughout the school year we will offer a variety of opportunities for students to grow and learn.


We welcome volunteers. Please contact your student's teacher if you would like to volunteer. We welcome our parents and guardians to take an active part in their student's education by participating in our school site council. Please call our school's office if you are in interested in participating in our school site council. 
If, at any time throughout the school year, you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your student's teacher or me. Again, we look forward to working with you and your child this school year.
