    "Catalina Foothills is a school that claims outstanding academics but bury themselves with appearance and money. Foothills is more focused on dealing with security forces than improving academic programs. The education you get is pretty average it is just in an upscale community. Extra curricular activities and specific departments such as math are weak but the district does not care to recognize that. Everyone seems to enjoy lying to themselves and blaming the state for lack of funding. They would rather hire more security staff with a student body that is 70 percent White....Catalina Foothills gets more credit than it deserves because of the lack of education standards in the state of Arizona. Go outside of Arizona, and this school is quite average. That is why 70% of kids end up at a state college because it is essentially a free ride. Arizona state colleges are required to admit just about anyone and everyone a resident of Arizona. I see these problems transferring from a stronger school system out of state. This is the best public high school in Tucson because you don't have a lot of choices. Do not expect amazing support here. This school is descending quite quickly."

    "We just spent the last ten years at CFHS as our three children went through the school. The teachers were top notch and the curriculum challenging and relevant. The depth and the breadth of classes, programs, and activities are unrivaled in Tucson. The entire staff and administration care about the students, and parents are very involved in supporting the school. Students are engaged in learning as well as the numerous extra-curricular activities and events. The campus and the views of the surrounding area are beautiful."

    "The school has excellent students and teachers, particularly in Math and English. The quality of Science teachers have declined markedly- the best ones have moved on. Some of the best teachers have been reallocated against their wishes- from subjects they taught extremely well to assignments they are unhappy about these remaining quality teachers will inevitably leave and add to this continuing decline. The Board needs to step in."

    "The school has excellent students and teachers in Math and English. The quality of Science teachers has declined markedly- the best ones have moved on- as shown by declining test scores. The academic focus over the last year or two in particular has markedly diminished, with the departure of quality teachers. Some of the remaining excellent teachers have been reallocated apparently against their wishes- from subjects they taught extremely well to assignments they are unsuited to and are clearly unhappy about these remaining few first-rate teachers will inevitably leave and add to this continuing slide. Standards are clearly slipping and there appears to be a lack of leadership- the Board needs to step in and fix the rot. My son has just graduated this year and I will watch for positive developments in the immediate future, but am not optimistic- we may be forced to send our younger child to a different school in the future. The District Board needs to step in."

    "Changing demographic of student population due to increase in open enrollment has made this school feel less safe and friendly--fights, kids with piercings, crowded classrooms. Lots of teacher turnover in Math and Science. Some excellent teachers and beautiful campus. This school seems to be trending downward and will probably soon become average. Too bad--was once a great school and a nice community."
