I am currently a 7th grade student at this school, been attending since kindergarten, and I have to say, I love this school. This school really genuinely cares about their students and the everyone mostly knows everyone. No MAJOR problems usually take place at FCS. Very welcoming environment and it's really easy to find a place to belong here at foothill. Academically, FCS is fair. You either get the material or you don't. No in between. You either love the teachers or you don't. (Junior high) the elementary (tk-5th grade) teachers are all great and you really get your start in those grades. The Junior high teachers how ever, are a bit different. You either love them or hate them. The bible teaching program is fantastic. Science program in Junior high is fantastic. Math program is weak. English is okay, Spanish is good, history is good. Barley any homework in junior high at FCS, most work happens in class. Very safe school. I have never felt unsafe here. Very warm welcoming place. They have some stupid rules in dress code and other academic stuff but other than that great school. I think kids can really get their start at Foothill christian school. One bad thing is that most kids attending this school have been attending since kindergarten and above so it might be a bit hard to fit it but not a major problem. Never any bullying at Foothill, the friend groups aren't cliquey at all and everyone is really friendly. Most Junior high teachers do play favorites but other than that they're really great and help a lot. You either love the teachers or you hate them. They're either a hit or miss. Overall, send your kid here. There really isn't any major issues at the school and honestly you won't find any better than Foothill. It's not hard at all to get involved in the school and again Foothill provides a place for every student.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree

To the most part the teachers are Effective depending on the grade level this can change. Communication should be #1 but lacks from the school




- a community member
Seems like funds $ are #1 to the school. No longer the children or parents. School has a Big lack of communication from the school to parents and teachers to parents. From a parent with 3 children in the school right now. If the same next year I will be making changes to other



- a parent
For the most part. Good teachers and how the school is run. Bad side, Lacks communication with parents. This is the down side of the school. Not organized on field trips. Overnight trips must be arranged better and have better communication with all parents. This is a must and the school is behind on this. Parents have a right to know all the people that will be with and around a child on any trip. The school is lacking on this when children will be away for a day or longer The overnight trips are lacking information and lacking meeting all parents going on the said trips. Teachers see no need for parents to meet other parents that will be on trips that are overnight with children. Wrong... Just a quick meet and greet a few days before a overnight trip could fix the issues but...

It's great to be part of a school that pursues academic excellence and character-building qualities with equal strength. Christian values and constant improvement in classroom technology, performing arts and mission outreach are foundational. As a grandparent, I can't think of a better place for my grandson to attend school.

Really!? The students received Principle Awards three trimesters in the roll received a principle awards dog tag!!! Could the school be a little bit serious in rewarding students' hard work especially for the 8th grade graduates. We would like to suggest school to give out honor cords to those graduating with straight-As in 8th grade years, that will be a lot more meaningful than the dog tag! This was very disappinting!

Our daughter is wrapping up her first grade year at FCS. We love it. The teachers are wonderful! They are very nurturing while providing a strong curriculum of learning mixed with fun. The best part about it is that she is learning in a good Christian environment.

This school has sunk to an all new low. We withdrew our child after three years of ongoing problems with teachers, the administration and our son being severely buliied by two children in his class. One came after my child with a pair of scissors while the other the son of ne of the teachers no less verbally harrassed our child to the point that he did not want to go to school. We made numerouse attempts to communicate and correct these problems. Even compling with the administration with having our son tested for an LD. When we finally decided to leave we respectfully requested a refund for the tuition we had paid in advance but had not yet received the services. Instead of refunding the 1 months tuition and childcare we received a letter thanking us for our "Donation to their annual fund" I am happy to report that our child is now in a safe nurturing atmosphere, but I strongly caution anyone who is considering Foothill Christian to think twice - This school is not run on Christian principles.

My daughter started the 6th grade a few weeks ago and we are extremely happy with this school. The teachers along with the principle are awesome. Just spend some time there and you will agree. See it for yourself. We came from BUSD and we are happy with the move.



- a parent
The school has rapidly declined in the last three years. I am very DISAPPOINTED in the lack of education my children have received.
