We are excited that you're interested in learning more about Foothills School!

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 encourage prospective parents to talk with school members, ask questions, and see if you can envision your child at Foothills. 

Foothills' application process is designed to provide families and the school with the necessary information to determine if a good match exists. Through the admission of new families, Foothills strives to build upon a diverse family community and student body that are well-matched with the school's mission, values, and educational program and community.

A mission appropriate student for Foothills School is someone who will be engaged in their learning and the classroom environment; respectful and kind in their interactions with students, teachers, and community members; collaborative and able to work well with others; creative and willing to take risks in their approach to learning and trying new things; motivated to work hard to meet their potential and responsible for getting their work done; and capable of handling a challenging, hands-on inquiry based learning environment and curriculum.

I look forward to assisting you as you complete the application and admissions processes for your family!
