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


The Foothills School Board of Trustees, the school's governing body, consists of volunteers. We aim to have representation from various constituencies including Foothills parents, past Foothills parents, educators, and community members from the greater Boise area. The Board meets monthly and works with school leadership to promote Foothills' mission, vision, and strategic goals. The Board exercises fiduciary responsibility and oversight, ensures and stewards the school's financial resources, and works to enhance the school's public standing.
