What does Foothills look for in a student and family? 

Foothills looks for students who are "mission appropriate," meaning that they get along well with others, are responsible and respectful, are motivated to do their best, and can thrive in a collaborative, Project Based Learning environment. Additionally, Foothills seeks to admit students whose educational and social and emotional needs can be met by the school, and for prospective parents who are willing to partner with the school to support their child's educational experience.
