Dear Prospective Family,
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about Foothills School and the exciting educational opportunities that we offer here! Throughout the application process, we want to share with you who we are as a school, what we do, and why we do it, so that you have a clear picture of the education we can provide for your child. We’ve designed our application process so that you have a chance to get all of your questions answered and we have the opportunity to get to know your family. The decision about whether or not to admit each student is based on the school’s evaluation of its ability to enhance the growth of the child, and the child and family’s ability to enrich the school community.
Foothills School is very proud to be celebrating our 24th year in operation, having served hundreds of 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 progressive learning community focused on helping our students develop and excel not only intellectually and academically, but just as importantly in personally, emotionally, 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. They also learn to develop their natural curiosity, work collaboratively, and think critically toward the ultimate goal of becoming a happy, life-long learner who makes a positive contribution to their communities and the world.
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 application process for your family.
Director of Admissions
