I have had two children in this school from roughly 2003 through 2008 and now again starting in 2014. My experience in this school has been horrible both times. The principal this time lies and contradicts herself - and attempts to blame the staff for things that she herself should be responsible for.

Foothills does amazing community out-reach. They just hosted an event for a new baseball field so the kids can play.

Best advise... Take your Child to Hutchinson just over Green Mountain. Much better atmosphere for your child to learn in....

Teachers manhandle the kids to where they leave bruises on them. Principle does nothing about it. Students are completely out of control and needs new staff.

I bring my daughter to school every day. The is out there and greets students and parents almost every day. I have been in most award ceremonies which were always led by the principal. I have never seen a more visible principal and am bemused about the previous review.

The staff at Foothills is amazing; I have watched my child, and now my grandchildren bloom! Dedicated and caring. Wouldn't think of moving!

Foothills Elementary is a wonderful little school. The teachers work hard, the students work hard and the community works hard to help the students. Foothills is a great place to be!

I agree that Foothills has a problem with some mean kids and definately with profanity. I have spoken to the principal and she has and continues to work on this problem. The teachers are given a tough population to work with at times and they do an excellent job of teaching and mentoring. The PE, music and art program are great! The teachers and the principal, Mrs. Donahue, are fabulous. I also only know the 5th and 6th grades. children will get a good education here but will have to put up with some negatives from the kids.

I have been involved with this school for the past 5 years and the improvements that have been made are tremendous. This School is truly an asset to the neighborhood.
