I was a troubled kid , foothill high school helped change my behavior and focus more on my school work. Foothill gives students many opportunities for growth and the staff is phenomenal in every way. What I would like to see change is the colors of the uniform , but that's what makes the school great .

When I went to school here at foothill I felt it was the first school I actually went to where the teachers actually cared about you the student and I excelled in the environment. Now that I turned in the last of my credits I couldn't be happier but I am going to miss attending foothill
The extracurricular's of my old high school were about the same as any other school. In fact, many of the high schools I attended prior to this particular school were full of many different clubs, plays, sports, musicals, orchestra, band and many other options. I was very disappointed in the lack of different clubs, sports and after-school activities. However, the staff was excellent in helping students meet the correct criteria for graduation. Teachers were very helpful and willing to help students achieve their goals in class and out.
