Foothill High School is a friendly and very safe environment. They provide all of the necessary tools to ensure our success at school. The teachers strive to prepare us for the future and help us, the students, when we may be having a difficult tie grasping a concept. Most of the teachers there go above and beyond when helping us.
Foothill High School offers AP, honors and IB courses. They also provide enriching academic curriculum and encourage students to go above and beyond what is expected and to think outside of the box.
I love this school compare to others that I have seen and have visited mainly because this is a diverse school in which keeps its balance and making sure that everyone is comfortable in the environment that we are being surrounded on. It is a school that is aware of our problems and can give us second chances. The teachers are so helpful and have been caring for others or checking to see how we are doing. I truly appreciate the work, time and effort they have been putting it has made a huge impact to others students life.
Unprofessional basketball coach ,lousy staff and counselor ,Terrible teachers. My kid had a very bad experience with this school and I wish I could take him out .
Teachers try to engage students and create a safe learning environment. I'd like to see more interaction from the counseling faculty with the students from freshman to junior year, but the counselors did a great job working with seniors to prepare for applying to college. Good school spirit and involvement from the Associated Student Body members.
the counselors need more experience with helping students apply for international schools, but overall it is a clean, safe, fun school.
The IB program at Foothill was a really great fit for me, and helped me find a group of people I fit in with. Only four stars, because they make it too difficult to have clubs and do community service through school, partially because of ASB.
Foothill High School is a great school with many diverse people and classes to take. The faculty is helpful and teachers were nice to the students. I can honestly say that my years at this school was the best years of my life. It was a great experience for me being able to enjoy my years before adulthood at this school. I love the challenge that was brought in the classes that were given such as the AP classes. Overall my experience here was great and would recommend to other students to come and experience this campus too.
Foothill is a school that offers a variety of classes you can choose from. Academically, this school is great. There are some teachers who you'll love, some teachers that are okay, and few that you'll question why or how they even are a teacher. The school can definitely work on caring about their students more in terms of mental health.
My kid always complain that the teachers don't teach anything. The basketball coach (Etemadi)was very rude and not professional .He doesn't know how to work with kids . The counselor wasn't helpful at all .We were very disappointed of this school .
My experience at Foothill High School was the best four years of my life. What I liked about Foothill is that everyone was friends with each other and everyone was never left out. It is always a good day when coming to school. I am always excited to come to school and is always looking forward to coming back to school when I was on break. One thing that I would change would be that our school should be more ethnicity orientated.
If it wasn't for the faculty I would not have graduated. This school had so many choices for classes and each teacher was kind and helped me get the best grade I could. Lots of help planning for college too
The faculty and student body were overall positive and welcoming. Foothill's environment is good and most of the teachers care a lot about the well being of their students. The only negative aspect of the school is its lack of school spirit. There is minimal participation during activities and majority of the student body cares little about events. The sports program is also exemplary and the classes are taught well and the AP classes prepare students well for the AP tests in May.
The experience was amazing. Parent communication was excellent via text or phone call regarding everything.
During my freshman year, I took Honors Geometry and I did not feel like I was gaining any knowledge due to his teaching style of putting people down for not completely understanding the concept the first time. As it is I am terrified to speak up and get help for the reason of being judged and publicly embarrassed and when I asked my counselor to get transferred to another class due to his teaching style, but I was denied that option and my grade suffered in that class suffered greatly. The following year, my sophomore year, in Chemistry Honors my teacher was rarely in class due to personal issues this causes a majority of the year to be filled with substitutes who were unable to teach us anything useful to the class. When the teacher officially came back the class was scolded about having no work done when no work was assigned and we had not been taught anything. I have had much more negative experience academically at Foothill that impacted me negatively.
My experience at this school has been very fun so far, other students are nice and teachers are respectful and know how to handle teenagers.
During my four years at Foothill High School, I was always able to connect with new people for any situation. Teachers and Staff are always willing to help no matter what the situation is.
