    "My son is in kindergarten at Foothill this year and we are having a great experience. His teacher is amazing, and he is progressing and learning a lot. He is 5 years old and can read as well as many 2nd or 3rd graders. The staff that works in the office and the teacher's aides are all wonderful. They truly care about all of the students and I feel that they treat my son as if he was their own. I think its sad that greatschools does not consider anything but test scores in its ranking of schools. There is a lot going for Foothill, and I'm afraid this ranking system does a huge disservice to the community by scaring parents away."

    "This is a great school with teachers who care. I've had a child enrolled in this school for the past 5 years And have covered all grades. Unfortunately the curriculum complaints are not the schools choosing we can thank the State of California testing standards. The teachers have to teach to curriculum and there are many teachers that go above and beyond that. The new PTA is making things fun for the students and good fund raisers. There is a new Principal which I am personally on the fence about, but his first year was ok so far positive changes. Last parents remember your child is going to get out what they put in any school. The job of the teachers is just part of the learning its our jobs to finish the learning at home. Mom of past Foothill 4 &5 th grader & current K-3rd grader"

    "My daughter has attended Foothill Elementary School since she was in kindergarten. She is now in 5th grade and is in Mrs. Banashefski's class. She loves her teacher and loves her school. With all of the cutbacks and money issues our MPUSD schools have experienced, I have to say that Foothill is doing an excellent job providing a good education for our students. Our principal, teachers, front office, all staff members, PTA, cafeteria professionals, custodians and parents are working together as a team to make our children's learning experience a positive one. I, for one love this school and am very proud to be a part of this wonderful team!!! After all, if we all work together to promote education in our schools, assist our teachers in the classroom when we can, play with our children on the playgrounds to get to know who their friends are, work out with our children in P.E. to show them how important exercise is (which is being funded by our Foothill PTA, not MPUSD), and be a part of promoting a positive environment for our kids, we can help our children believe that they can make a difference. Isn't that what we want for our kids? Foothill Elementary has made a difference for us.."

    "My son just started Kindergarten and I was appalled at the number of students in a class (30 to one teacher). After the first half week, I couldn't believe how juvenile the curriculum was. My 5 1/2 year old was "working" on shapes. At the Back to School night we learned that next week the kids would be starting a new math unit (I had some hope that it would be a little more advanced). I was stunned when the teacher said with enthusiasm that the kids would be learning the numbers 1-5! Granted my son has had the opportunity to attend really good preschools, but I did expect there to be some challenge or additional work from the teacher for the kids who already mastered the current topics. Our teacher made it clear she could or would not deviate from the set curriculum. My husband and I will be removing him from this school."

    "Horrible staff. The Principal doesn't seem to care to work with parents when issues are brought to him. Poor after school program. Academics don't seem to be important. Awful supervision; my child was CONSTANTLY bullied, bruised, and beat up, and yet, no staff member seemed to be around to stop any altercations. My nephew experienced similar situations. I pulled my child from this place and relocated him to a more structured and safe learning environment."
