Excellent Community College in Los Altos Hills! Georgeous campus, great professors, very diverse student body. A very supportive environment for younger students.
Review Foothill College
You have graduated High School but you have no clue what career suits you? Neither did I and foothill's best quality is being able to explore your interests more! I have taken classes in all the fields that appealed to me and after 4 changes in major over the past year, I have it figured out. I didn't feel like I was wasting my money or time because all those classes counted for GE. Foothill is a great choice for anyone without a set career or even someone with one. It is affordable and easy going for new comers!
So I'm a middle college student and in all honesty, it saved my life. I wouldn't have lasted through traditional high school and definitely would have dropped out if I hadn't been welcomed into the community. I love it at Foothill, the classes are interesting and engaging, the campus is beautiful and the students are friendly, and I actually enjoy going to school again.
