My son just started here. It's been great so far. The teachers are great and the school strictly enforces rules. Great FRKF. The homework materials are great and upto expectations.
This school is amazing! What a terrific GATE (gifted and talented education) this school has and teachers that really care. Thie student body is well diversified. Outstanding PTA and FRKF (local kid's foundation) that make this school shine with extra programs most schools can't offer. The parents' involvement in this school is second to none. I have two boys that graduated from this school and they now straight A students - one of my kids is at OCSA (a charter performing arts high school and voted one of the best schools in the NATION). I also have a younger child at this school who loves it and is receiving the best education our tax dollars can offer. This is a community of smart, involved and kind people and this is reflected in the quality of the teachers and students alike. Anyone who doesn't like this school is an ANOMALY and obviously has their own individual issues. No school is perfect, but I feel like I gave my kid's the best by living in this community and sending them to this wonderful school.
My son has been at this school for two years and is doing quite well. The teachers and other staff members that I have met are great. Classes are a bit overcrowded, but I know that is true of most California public schools today. From what I have seen in my son's classroom, his teacher is doing the best and the most that she can. It helps that there is a lot of parent involvement here. It seems as if there is often at least one parent helping in the lower grade classrooms.
My son transferred here from Melinda Heights because SDC was overcrowded there and he was stuck in a class with horrible teacher. Since changing schools last year, he has matured so much and he is meeting grade level standards for the first time. We love Mr. Cuesta and the instructional aids. Thanks to great parent particiapation, the school is able to offer its large student population a variety of academic and extra curricular activities. Our SDC kids have great opportunities for inclusion in all of these.
I go to this school and i am going in to 6th grade. Being a bobcat has changed my life comepletly. There are ups and downs....but i met the best friends there.
Great school with great teachers --Mrs Liewer, Mrs Shoemaker (retired), Mrs McCarthy, Mrs Rubel (retired), Mrs Ray, Mrs McCurdy, Mrs Grove, Mrs Kimball and many more. Parent involvements also have made a difference in today's annual budget crisis.
Foothill Ranch Elementary has an incredible Assistant Principal who has made a remarkable difference in the culture, enriching the academic programs, and working with the Parent Community to create a positive school culture that is indicative of success. The Assistant Principal has been at Foothill Ranch since the 2010 school year and has literally transformed Foothill Ranch from a good school to an excellent school. She is the constant presence at the site and is the go to for most parents. My children absolutely love Foothill Ranch and I attribute this to the teaching staff and the leadership of the Assistant Principal.
A school of excellence in the SVUSD district. Smart boards in every classroom. State-of-the-art technology and new cloud system students can bring laptops to school for some classes. This school benefits from an active PTA and a excellent Foundation. Private funds from the community keep this school operating at top-notch while other schools are suffering in this budget crisis state. Great teachers and parent involvement!
I'm the grandmother of two boys who have attended this school. The now 14-year-old had straight A's from 4th grade and on through Intermediate school thanks to the great teachers at Foothill Ranch. The younger boy is in the 6th grade and also has had straight A's. The teachers at this school are invested in giving the kids the best they have to offer.
Great support by teachers and parents. The communication between teachers and parents is the best!
excellent teachers, excellent before & aftercare located on sight and partners with a school in Paris for a foreign exchange program
Great place for kids to learn about valuable academic subjects, how to be creative, and how to discover what they love!
Foothill ranch elementary school is an excellent school. My son is in 1st grade.He love his school very much. The teacher s are so cooperative, helpful, and understandable. They always try to help their student. They are just excellent.

Foothill Ranch Elementary School is an excellent school. There is a lot of parent involvement. I have 2 kids - one in 6th and the other in Kindergarten. They absoluately love it. The teachers and administrators are just amazing.
Outstanding school, I have a son in 2nd grade and a daughter in 1st. They have been in FRE since they were in preschool, no complains whatsoever. The parent involvement is awesome, and the teachers are excellent, and the administration is top notch
I wentto this school the year it first opened and have watched my siblings go through this school as well. My youngest sibling will be going in to the third grade and is hoping to get the same teacher our Brother had (who is now 22). The school is like one big family and my goal is to raise my kids at this school as well. The teachers are awesome although I would agree at times it seems like the quantity takes over the quality. Great school! Extremely friendly administration. They remember many kids who come back to visit and that's because they get to know everyone on such a personal level. Parent involvement is amazing too!
My children came to this school in Kindergarten and we have been here 5 years now. We love the teachers, the staff and administration. Our principle and Vice Principle are not only professional, but kind, compassionate and loving. They are alwasy available and on campus. They deliver birthday wishes daily to our students. Our office staff is the BEST! They are helpful, loving and on top of things. They work so hard to make out school what it is. OUr teachers strive to not only teach, but take each child as an individual person. We offer great programs: art masters, computer lab, chorus for the upper grades, but music for all grades. We also offer enrichment programs after school. I can go on and on about what an amazing school we have. We also have outstanding parent involvment and PTA !
