This district is a national leader in PreK-12 education. They have a sustained leadership team, with an outstanding superintendent and top-notch principals. CFSD pioneers innovative learning strategies--and sticks with them. Foothills alumni embark on a diverse array of career paths and academic disciplines because they learn how to think, not what to think. Teachers are highly qualified leaders, with many holding advanced degrees.
The administration is fantastic. They truly care about their students and want to make sure that all students are successful. There is a good demonstration of making sure that students have the opportunity to go to higher level colleges, which is very great for a public school to have.
