Great little school! Small classroom sizes and very attentive teachers. Average class size is 10-15 students.
FOA is a great school and the best value for your money in the foothills city areas. I should know as I have all 3 of my kids educated by the techers at this school. The school has excellent teacher to student ratio. Teachers are attentive, highly engaged in making sure that each child does the best he/she can in the class. Kids from this school have been accepted by the leading private schools in the area. School is non-religious it is located on the grounds of the church but it is not affiliated with any church and it does not teach religion. I highly recommend it.
Our family has been with Foothill Oaks for over 12 years. We have three children and two are still at Foothill Oaks. The oldest graduated sometime ago and is currently a sophomore at UCR. FOA is a great environment for kids. The teaching staff shows a lot of passion for what they do as do the administrative staff. We also love the collaborative environment they nurture. FOA's team will do whatever it takes to ensure a child gets through their struggles and beyond. We are also quite pleased with FOA's academics. The oldest one breezed through her first year of high school due to the strong foundation she received from FOA. Last but not least is the value FOA offers. We have looked at other private schools and after taking location, environment, tuition, teachers, admin staff, and academics of course, we find FOA extremely competitive.
Foothill Oaks Academy(FOA) is a wonderful place to study at , Pre-K -- 8th.This year I will be in 8th grade.. I am so happy that our school have lots of actives and events , they are very fun. Every single teachers and staff are very sweet , nice and kind. They willing to help us with any trouble on rather on homework or not, they are all caring and trustable. Sports - Our greatest sport is volleyball, we also have basketball and foot-ball. One thing i think i will recommend to my school is , we should add few more sports so other students can have more choices and might wanna join the sport teams . example badminton , is one of a good sport too. Education is excellent , teachers are great, when we don't understand a lesson or homework, our teachers will willing to go over it again with us. Elementary school 1st-5th, and Middle school 6th - 8th. Students are very nice to each other just like family, to me this is my second home , specially my own class , just like brothers and sisters, teachers are awesome. Foothill Oaks Academy is a great school, i am sure every student who going to or study there loves this school.
This is a private pre-K through 8 school in the San Gabriel valley region of Los Angeles, California. The school offers a comprehensive standards-based curriculum along with a large variety of enrichment classes and after-school programs. Foothill Oaks completes in several league sports (both boys and girls) as well as local math competitions. Their graduates go on to some of the top ranking private schools in the region. many graduates also are accepted into the Monrovia High School Math and Science Academy Honors Program. It's an excellent choice for the money.
Our child has attended FOA for the past 2 school years. She began in the Pre-K program and is now attending Kindergarten. The teachers here are so wonderfully attentive and our child has progressed in so many ways. The personal attention, education and competitive tuition at FOA is so difficult to find anywhere else. The welcomed feedback from parents is also very appreciated. In everything from her actual Kindergarten class to language, technology, art and the fun and creative music programs that they do throughout the year...it has been such a great experience for us!
Best private elementary and middle school in Glendora/Azusa/Duarte/Monrovia/Arcadia. The school provides a loving and nurturing environment. Graduates of Foothill Oaks Academy routinely get accepted into the top private high schools in the Pasadena area.
We have two children in Foothill Oaks Academy. They love the school! They wake up and want to go to school ( No dragging them out of bed anymore). Our goal was for the children to get excited about learning at a young age and instill good study habits for the future of their education. This school has delivered. Great Teachers, small class sizes and a nuturing environment. Plus the tution is very reasonable. We highly recommend Foothill Oaks Academy
My child is now in his second year at Foothill Oaks Academy, and doesn't want to even consider going anywhere else! We have had a very positive experience at this school. The small class size works very well for my son, and he gets plenty of individual attention from the excellent teachers. I greatly enjoy interacting with all teachers and parents -- everyone is friendly, pleasant, and extremely helpful. From the principal to the teachers, all gave freely of their time and attention to ensure that my son's education was of the highest quality. I highly recommend Foothill Oaks Academy!
Foothill Oaks Academy has been a great school for our child. Our child had an excellent teacher and we are looking forward to another wonderful year. We would recommend this school!
We are very pleased with the academics at Foothill Oaks Academy. Our daughter is excelling in all subjects. It was nice to see 6th grade win a math competition amongst 35 schools. That speaks volumes to the dedication and quality of the teachers, staff and students. Foothill Oaks Academy has a great selection of enrichment programs that has greatly contributed to the growth and development of our daughter. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wants the best for their child.
My husband and I are so thrilled with our school. Everyone has bent over backwards to make sure our children are being nurtured, challenged, and learning every day. This school offers such a wide variety of extras that most schools have cut from their budget. The staff and and administration as always available to talk and take care of the smallest detail. We couldn't be happier! Plus, just seeing the smiles on all the children's faces is all we need to see!
We are very pleased with the middle school experience our child is having at Foothill Oaks Academy. The enthusiastic manner in which the teachers approach the curriculum has made the learning process exciting and engaging for our student. We are pleased to see that the faculty takes an active interest in our student's success. We daily hear the positive "things that happened at school today"! We feel like the faculty, and staff at large, are committed to the success of students in all areas, as well as working to create a strong sense of community among the families. We would confidently recommend Foothill Oaks Academy to families looking for an outstanding educational experience in the San Gabriel Valley.
Foothill Oaks Academy is a great school. There is one problems that I would change: Teacher Rebecca Lopez! She is very mean to my child and is very snott She made one girl so scared that she wouldn't even stepinto her class.She gave Her OCD. Now that Mrs.Ellision is gone let's hope we can push out the rest of the Carden People.
I have been very pleased here at Foothills Oaks Academy. My child is in the 3yr old preschool class. She is made to feel very welcomed by all and is challenged every day in new ways. They take teaching beyond the classroom and make learning fun, interesting, and exciting. The parent/teacher communication is great and open as well as the staff/parent communication. Faculty and staff involve their own families in activities which gives me a sense of true dedication and belief in the school.
What a great school to work for! The staff is working together to make each student feel special and successful. The administration is very supportive. There is no other place I would rather be!
There is no other school we would have chosen. Our family is very pleased with Foothill Oaks Academy and the excellent education our child is receiving. The teachers seem very dedicated to their students and challenge them to apply themselves and strive for their best. The administration has been supportive and communicates regularly with us. We are pleased that the school offers music, drama, computers, art, foreign languages and more, in addition to rigorous academics. It is obvious to us that a lot of talented people are working hard to ensure our middle school experience is all that we had hoped.
