Foothill Oaks Academy 5

We have 3 sons, two of which are still at FOA, and the oldest (14) is at La Salle High School in Sierra Madre. We are so pleased with how prepared our oldest son was for high school - not only did he test into multiple honors classes, he earned straight A's his first report card in high school! Needless to say, we are thrilled with how well FOA prepared him for high school and highly recommend this school. There is a definite benefit to small classes and a serious curriculum.

After trying a few different early programs, we are SO happy we found FOA. Our first grader has been here since Pre-K. The teachers are outstanding on so many levels, both personally and professionally. And the course work is both challenging and rewarding throughout each grade. The small teacher to student ratio and personalized attention really show through. We were amazed how quickly our child was focusing, learning, retaining and enjoying her work. FOA is excellent at deciphering and getting through to each child. The course level is still surprising as well. We re always saying, "gee, I can't believe they're learning that already, how wonderful." And when our little 1st grader came home and started speaking simple French, we were thrilled. It s worth mentioning how often we notice the older students being so thoughtful and caring to each other and the younger kids. It's remarkable. We see it all the time. The student body is made up of some really outstanding kids. FOA is competitive and places its students in some of the best private high schools around, and most importantly, it helps children grow into the best people they can be. We are so happy with our choice.

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 has been such a great experience for us!

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
