Its a good school, just kinda weirded out how they have SOOO many computers yet they dont even offer a simple computer class. There are some awesome teachers though, shout out to mr kelly and mr sanderson! But yeah the school is good, there is a drug problem but which school doesnt? Its has an awesome scenery too, their band is one of the best.

Approaching my senior year, Catalina Foothills has become my home for the past three years. Ive learned so many new things, far beyond academics. I've learned to be independent, take initiative, and try new things. Catalina Foothills offers unique opportunities for every interest. In fact, as a four year art student, my art teacher just became certified to teach AP 2D art just in time for my senior year. Its opportunities and hard work such as that, that make Catalina Foothills such a wonderful place.
Great school! Exceptional academics, strong athletic program, and diverse. The teachers know what they’re doing and have the students best interest. I highly recommend.
