Foothill Middle School3

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.
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.
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.
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.
this school has a lot of after school activites a bunch of different kinds of clubs and the staff are great. if your falling behind they have extra help for you. they even have a class you can sign up for where you have a whole period to catch up on homework or do homework and ask questions if you dont understand it. foothill middle school is a great school and you should definatly go to it.
