Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Foothills School philosophy is based on the interrelationships among intellect, character, and creativity. We believe that in order to be well prepared for the future, children must have a solid intellectual foundation, must develop their capacities for inventiveness, and must
participate in a community that builds self-confidence and interpersonal skills.
Our expectations and our educational strategies reflect an understanding of children's needs and abilities as they grow and mature. This developmental perspective, together with a profound concern for the physical and emotional well-being of each child, is the essence of the Foothills School program. The curriculum content emphasizes critical thinking, problem solving, the arts, environmental science, and international perspectives, including ongoing foreign language instruction that begins in kindergarten.
