I am an immigrant from Taiwan and it is a great time there I spend in foothill high school. I met a bunch of nice teachers and mentor and really improved my English.
However, there are also things that are not so pleasant. Some of the teachers just suck and discriminated. In that case I would leave it because it's only 2-3 teachers like that. Overall, I do enjoy my time in foothill high and go falcons!
Review Foothill High School
One of my favorite parts about Foothill High School was the teachers there. When I went, almost every one of my teachers was always involved and actively engaging in the class. While as a student this sometimes sucked because you would hope that each and every day you would have nothing to do, most days it was actually something that interested me and pushed me to learn. The administration was usually fair and the campus and friends I got from going to school made me into who I am. Overall I'm grateful for the experience I got while attending Foothill.
I had a wonderful experience at Foothill high school. My time there wasn't always the best, but it was good nonetheless. When I was in band and playing my sports, I felt like I was part of a huge family. We stuck together and helped each other. I really loved that environment. Unfortunately, some of the teachers weren't the best. And sometimes we up to date lacked resources. However, we made due and continued studying. Also, Foothill's graduation requirement are basically college enrollment requirements, so I feel all the more ready to continue my enducation.
