    "Contrary to the last few reviews, I would like to express my dissatisfaction with Foothills Academy. After spending three years at the school, I have withdrawn my son. I'm withdrawing him for many reasons, too many to list in this review. I completely disagree with the Administrations' philosophies, and it's known that academically the school has been deteriorating. Just look at the rankings here-what was once a 10 is now an 8....there will be a substantial exit of upperclassmen next year, and for very good reasons. Foothills is losing some of their best. High school should not only be rewarding and challenging academically, but also socially. There is no school spirit or "fun" events ie. dances etc that these kids should be able to enjoy. There is no student involvement or attendance at sports events, no cheerleaders, or spirit clubs. The school held a "drum circle" at the end of the school year. Sorry, but I don't think that is any high school student's idea of fun. I'm looking forward to my son attending a high school that offers a more traditional education(weighted Honors, AP & IB), and a more fun and rewarding experience."

    "My daughter has attended Foothills Academy College Prep since 6th grade. She has had nothing but positive experiences...educationally, socially and with extra curricular activities. She is continually challenged in the classroom. Beginning in with 6th grade Science where she was propelled to a new level of performance we had not seen previously in public school. She was instructed in English during her 7th and 8th grade years by one of the best teacher she has ever had. Last year, in 10th grade, her writing developed on a whole new level. As a result of the advanced math curriculum she experienced over the past 5 years, my daughter performed exceptionally on the 10th grade AIMS math assessment. The small classroom size and extraordinarily caring teachers and staff have been a real benefit to my daughter. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for an academically challenging curriculum in a small family-like environment."

    "Both of my kids started Foothills Academy last fall and I am so happy my husband and I decided to make the change. At first both of my kids were apprehensive of starting over at a new school, but the small atmosphere of the Foothills Academy really helped them feel at home quickly. My 7th grader has made a group of great friends and my 9th grader loved playing on all the sports teams with her new friends. They are both looking forward to attending Foothills Academy next year and I am so glad that we found the girls a school where they feel safe and have great teachers they say they learn a lot from."

    "We currently have four children attending Foothills and have been there for almost five years. My background is in private education and have found my children's education to be equivalent to the private education that I received. We are grateful to be a part of Foothills and look forward to all four of our children graduating from there."

    "My daughter was struggling at the local public high school and came to this school and flourished with a caring staff, and small classes. She still struggles in math but the program is advanced; the principal met with us and outlined a good academic plan to help our daughter succeed. My son is thinking about joining his sister there for high school, but doesn't like the uniform strictness."
