    "Foothills is a great school, My two children were attending a Charter School and fell behind, Foothills did all the right things to help catch my children up. We have been at this school now for 3 years. The principal is very active with the children & he attends 'every' school event. The majority of the teachers have been there for greater than 5 years and the school continues to challenge the children academically. Both my children LOVE going to school and partaking in the school's family events and academic extra programs. The primary disappointment is that there is minimal parent involvement. I encourage parents to come to the PTSA meetings and get involved. I agree, Foothills Elementary School is one of the best kept secrtes in PVUSD!"

    "Foothills is one of the best kept secrets in PVUSD...the teachers are excellent and the staff is friendly and caring! You will not find a better principal in any other elementary school around! What a wonderful experience to find that the school is focused on all the right priorities to keep a positive learning environment for our kids!"

    "My son is in kindergarten this year, and we love Foothills! Wonderful school, through and through. Caring teachers who are there if you need anything, and a visible principal, happy children learning and having fun learning (which is so important these days!) They seem to have a lot of after school classes/clubs, as well as lots of extracurricular events. If you are thinking of sending your child here, visit the campus for yourself, you will be glad you did!"

    "Overall, a wonderful school. I moved my kids to Foothills last year and have been extremely happy with the principal, teachers, extracurriculur activities, etc. Definitely a warm and caring environment for the students. I give this school an A+! If you are thinking of sending your kids here, visit the school and meet the principal, you will be glad you did!"

    "My child was moved from a valley charter school to Foothills. She has really enjoyed Foothills and has excelled academically at her own pace. The Principal is kind and caring and very active with all the events sponsored by the schools, he is ready to deal with situations head on and visibly enjoys the children. The teachers are experienced and the majority of them have been with Foothills 5+ years. The school has made changes to increase the safety and well being of the children. I am pleased with my child's personal growth and academic growth that has been facilitated and nurtured by the Principal and staff of this school."
