Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about Foothills School and the exciting educational opportunities that we offer here.
Foothills School is very proud to be celebrating our 22nd year in operation, having served over a thousand Pre-K to 9th grade students and their families over the years. We work hard every day to realize our potential of being a vibrant learning community, focused on helping our students develop and excel not only academically, but also in personally and socially meaningful ways. Through Project Based Learning, our students engage in learning that integrates different subject areas into exciting projects that allow them to get at the heart of deep questions, as well as to learn to work collaboratively and critically toward the ultimate goal of becoming a life-long learner.
Foothills School is a place where learning is fun and the school becomes a “home away from home" for our students. Our outstanding teachers personalize our curriculum for students so that they are challenged and successful at their appropriate level, without feeling unnecessary pressure. Foothills helps students develop a strong sense of who they are as people, the motivation and competency to excel in school, the confidence to express their ideas and opinions, and strong preparation to be successful in high school, college and beyond. We feel fortunate that we've created an educational model here where students become deeply engaged in their own learning and love coming to school.
As part of the application process, we ask prospective families to spend time at the school, talk with school members, ask questions and see if they can envision their child as a part of our program. I look forward to assisting you as you complete the admissions process for your family.
