A child's time at Foothills is spent learning about wonder, language, integrity, music, problem solving, conflict resolution, independence, communication, art, and so much more, couched in projects, events, and real-world situations. These kids become the most well-rounded, confident, and complete versions of themselves possible.

If you want your child to think independently, have strategies to work though real-world problems, be internally motivated and confident and enjoy learning, then this is the school for you. The "early learner" (preschool) program is simply astounding and far surpasses anything else I've seen. The kids are treated with respect as individual learners and work on incredible projects throughout the year, like learning how wheel/axel systems work through experimentation (yes, these are 3-5 year olds). Throughout the learning experience, kids are challenged to find their own individual strengths, to work with others to on real world problems, and not to accept shoddy work from themselves. Moving to this school from the public schools was an adjustment in terms of higher expectations. I've been very impressed by older kids in the school (7-9 grade) in how articulate they are about their ideas. They seem to really enjoy learning and rave about the relationships they have with their teachers. I'm incredibly glad we found this school and highly recommend you check it out. (There is a new head of school in August 2013)

Foothills is a wonderful school! This is my daughters 2nd year and she LOVES it!! The trips to out of the state are fantastic and they even went to Spain. The smaller class sizes are great and give them one on one attention. K to 9 and all they way around a great choice for every kid.

foothills school is the most independent and creative thinking environment you could ever ask for your childeren. the teachers and staff are very [forward] thinking and allow the childern to experience 'life' and understanding to creative thinking. art, music, research, mathmatics, theatre, literacy and spanish are just some of the priorities that our childeren learn. the most important aspect is the respect for others, the environment and community culture.
