Thank you for your support of Foothills School of Arts and Sciences. Foothills School ignites a passion for learning through a progressive approach to education that focuses on the academic, emotional, and social learning of each and every child. Your gift helps today’s students become tomorrow’s innovators, leaders, and creators.
Foothills School offers many unique educational opportunities not usually found in the Boise area. Our students enjoy Fall and Spring Trips that take them around the U.S. and abroad as a way to explore the world and prepare students to participate in a global community. The arts are an important part of a Foothills education with a strong focus on music, visual, and performing arts. Through Project Based Learning, our students can approach learning with curiosity and creativity to seek in-depth answers to questions. With an 8:1 ratio, our faculty knows the strengths and progress areas of each student, and are able to differentiate learning at every level. Foothills is truly a unique place, where academic rigor is paired with a warm environment where each child feels confident and is able to charge of their learning.
As a community-based and privately funded independent school, Foothills enjoys a number of advantages—and faces certain challenges—not found in a public school setting. While public schools are limited to a specific allocation of public funds each year, the opportunities at Foothills are limited only by the enthusiasm and support of the Foothills community. This affords us the flexibility to grow, and offer increasingly progressive educational experiences for our students.
Every gift is an investment that has long-lasting benefits for our students, program, and, future. Thank you for your support.
