A Private, Independent PreK-9th Grade school in downtown Boise, Idaho. 

"One of the most valuable aspects of my children's experience at Foothills is the culture where their learning and development took place. At Foothills, it is OK to be interested, it’s OK to be kind, it’s OK to be quirky–we’re all a bit quirky whether or not it’s apparent on the surface. You are more prepared to bring who you are into the world if you come from a place where it’s safe to be who you are. Both of my children are more grounded now because of the environment and the people who surrounded them here at Foothills." ~Alumni Parent
