Me being a student I was harassed by all 3 principles and all way got in trouble for thing that was sent my fault. The education is poor and the physical education was poor. Most P.E teacher lacked the skill to be a teacher. The student there were obviously privileged to much lacking the social skill they need in life.

The school is okay, but the vice principal is not very logical, and they have very inconsistent spending. Why waste money on thirty-something low-end gaming PCs when you can use it on something logical, like a Student wi-fi network? Not everyone has a 3G/4G/LTE connection, you guys.

Foothill has a few bad teachers but the majority of teachers are great my daughter got advanced on all her big tests and has advanced greatly in math while my son has strait As now and pays far more attention in class and on homework. The majority of the teachers are kind hearted and pay great attention to the students in their class and if we get a teacher that does not teach well or help the students we simply switch to another teacher by turning in a form for switching classes. The very rare fights that happen in this school are fixed and the students in the fight are punished. In an all together summary i would say foothill is a wonderful school.

Teachers aren't very great. Students are extremely innapropiate and act very innappropiately in front of teachers, who do nothing to stop them. Bell Schedule is also very annoying.



- a parent
Schools in this area are ok if you have average students. Academic standards are low relative to the expense of living in this area. The schools offer very little in the way of advanced academics, sports, after school activiites, or help for struggling students. Quality of teachers is inconsistent.

We do not run 5 miles every Wednesday, only one. If you fail than you should go to learning center even though it is very hard to fail. I am a student

My grandson goes to this school and his comment was "it is very stressful". They had an assembly on bullying today, a lot of good it did. As my daughter was waiting to pick up her son, a fight broke out when one boy jumped another. Parents and students just stood around. My daughter ran over and broke it up. The PE teacher came out and instead of hauling them to the office, he told the boy who started it to go home! No consequences is why this bullying continues to grow worse. What is wrong with your staff?

i am a former Foothill student. I attended for 8th grade. That one year was the absolute worst of my life. The teachers was discouraging, the students were very innappropiate. i had a terrible time here.

My son loved 6th and 7th grade, but hated 8th, especially his advanced math teacher. She wasn't encouraging kids at all.

Ever since we have moved my son here from a school in Alamo, he's been doing so great. He used to be B's and C's but now he's so interested on learning that he's been taking home straight A's and he won't accept any lower than that. He has great teacher that keeps him interested and gives him all the support for him to achieve his goal.
