I hate this school so much. I am miserable here. Most my teachers are good, but are honestly just too overworked by having classes of 40-70 to really be able to pay attention to every student. I transferred this year as a junior, last year I went to a fantastic school where I was very popular and well liked, and highly involved. It is very hard to get involved in anything, especially things outside of sports. The kids aren't very friendly and some are just flat out intimidating or rude. A surplus of your mean high school girls. I came in with a positive attitude and I will continue to smile and try everyday to make friends, but on the last day of school, I will gladly stand up in the middle of the quad and scream, " [a word that may not be appropriate] you foothill" and walk off, with a smile, to my new school I have chosen to transfer to.

This school fails to keep its students on-campus. I see multiple students climbing over the fences EVERYDAY. Also, DRUGGIES EVERYWHERE I LOOK. And since the racial population here is mostly white, they all tend to throw racist insults towards the those who aren't. My friends back at Tustin were right, I should've never transferred to this school!

This school WAS one of the top schools in the prior to the 90's. They're riding on the coat tails of prior accomplishments for prior years. If your child is average or sub par, this school will cater towards them. If your child is a top academic performer, they provide sub par education & involvement compared to other schools (like Troy). They are too focused on sports as evidenced by all the millions spent on sport & activity centers as they cut OCAD, Speech & Debate, music, no United Nations Program, etc. English department is horrible with the exception of Ms. Casper. I remember reading papers from my child that were so grammatically incorrect that I would be beside myself. This was from the IB teachers. Casper is great, but you don't get her until Senior year which is too late. Many teachers are inappropriate and do things like swear in class, talk about personal issues, cross lines, or joke around too much with students. Those teachers are the ones most liked by the students. This school is filled with entitled rich kids that influence other kids, and the IB program fuels elitism. We are worried about the person our son will become after his time at this school.

Foothill has an incredible English Department. It's writing program is unique to the district and perhaps to the county. The AP teachers our son has had have been excellent, and most of the Honor's program teachers have been superior. Drama and newpaper programs are excellent. A wonderful and talented choir, award-winning dance team, and competative sports program including superior lacrosse and water polo programs should make anyone attending FHS proud! Several teachers have recently retired which means new, 'young blood' is being pumped into the faculty. Our seasoned principal is very visible on campus, and he has made it his mission to provide the upgrades in facilities FHS needs. The new quad and science building are testaments to his efforts. Much parent support and on-campus vounteering makes this a unique school as well.

This is a great high school because of the high parental expectations for their children, not necessarily for the teachers talents. Many of the teachers have been there too long and they need more youthful energetic teachers with more energy. 'Tired' is a good way to explain some of them and the quality of the classrooms. It is mostly riding on it's reputation of 30 years ago. The school has a very active ed. fund with a large amount of money donated every year.

This is a very academic high school taught mostly by teachers with years of experience. Parents in this community tend to be very supportive toward insuring that their children succeed in school. This school is in need of a total remodel because the buildings are about 35 years old.

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.
