The Foothills Difference

  • Our low student-teacher ratio allows our community to be close-knit and our teachers to care about our students as creative individuals who are capable of great things.
  • Faculty members are committed to our unique approach to education and to learning about each student and really knowing them so that they can best meet their learning needs.
  • Our classrooms include students from two grade levels – called dyads - which allow us to be flexible in grouping students for their best learning outcomes.
  • Our faculty members teach in teams so that we are able to bring a breadth and depth of perspectives in each dyad's instruction.
  • We teach Spanish, Music, Visual Arts, and Performing Arts schoolwide because we know they are vital to students' learning.
  • We use Project Based Learning as one of our main strategies for integrating different subjects into collaborative, exciting classroom projects that promote teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking.
  • Our alumni have proven time and again that their skills as thinkers and problem solvers enable them to succeed at test taking - we just don't believe it's a way to encourage the love of learning that drives our daily experience at Foothills.
