At my time in Foothills, I was able to enjoy my time since homework load wasn't the most dreadful thing, but I would have liked to be better prepared for high school. I feel as if in 6th grade the teachers put more work on the 6th graders then the 8th graders. For me, my 8th grade year was a breeze. But the thing that really stood out to me was the people that I was surrounded by. They made middle school unforgettable and I look back on it everyday and smile. So if you surround yourself with friends that you can have a good time with, the rest will be fine.

Too good, no bullying, everything is good( the lunch line is always toooooooooo long!) Teachers are nice!
There is only one teacher for the whole music program(Band and orchestra)
The curriculum and school were great, and there was a great supportive group, from my math teacher to the crossing guard. Some teachers may ignore some students at times and it can feel very uncomfortable. The teachers loved teaching over the set curriculum, for example teaching extra in math or science.
