The school is fine and I have had no problems with my child attending. Foothill has had a good reputation for a long time. If you are complaining about

This school is awful. Kids are horrible to each other! Constant fight even with campus police watching at all times! If you love your kids please don't make them go here.

This school has some SERIOUS PROBLEMS! Not only does the admin staff and certain teachers lack communication skills, but it is your children that will suffer. Staff ALWAYS has an excuse for ALL OF THE MISTAKES THAT OCCUR! And the Teachers & Admin are not held accountable!

What is the school environment like for the 2012 year? Is it a safe campus or is there gang activity?

This school has always gained a good reputation in my neighborhood. It has been through a lot, and yes it is old, but it continues to be diverse and confident in maintening a good atmosphere for my children.

I was a student at Foothill and now that I am gone my sister is a student, and it looks like foothill is changing for the worse. It has been having problems with test scores since I've been there and still is. Some of the teachers are wonderful, but there are just as many that don't do their jobs whatsoever. There aren't many options for extracurriculars unless the student is interested in science. The school does have classes to meet all the A-G requirements, and a few extra science classes, and very little for students interested in the humanities. The club scene was not particularly active, except the german club, and few student events were held when I went there. Howevver, the students do stand up for themselves where they can when the administration is unfairto the students and some of the beloved teachers. Overall, the school is not very academically minded, but the students do have (mostly) okay relationships with eachother and some of the teachers,but all the same, I'm glad to have graduated. It si going through some changes that are very odd and I think impractical, so it's a school to watch and see what happens before making a big decision on it.

What can I say? Most people here look out for each other. It is very diverse so don't be shocked if your child ends up learning a bit of russian, mienh, german, or spanish. There are school wide events such as the International Econ Summit and international week (especially German day). There are college prep classes required to graduate from here such as typing. Students are very close. When something isn't liked there is a protest (usually for the rights of a teacher or a student). Wide variety of AP courses including Biology. Want to cut open a cow heart? Yeah they have anatomy as well! Special 'academy' puts focus on technology.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
