Principal's Message

Working with Family is Never Boring
We are excited to begin this fantastic learning adventure with your FCS scholar. Throughout the year we will be involved in new and invigorating experiences that will allow your FCS scholar to grow and expand their horizons. At Foothills Community School, our STEM facilitators plan thought-provoking, driving questions that our scholars dive into using project-based learning methods. Our STEM facilitators are dedicated to ensuring scholar success through a redesigned educational experience. 
 
What is different about Foothills Community School? 
-Flexible scheduling allows scholars the opportunity to ensure that they have time and support to work on areas that may be challenging to them. 
-Individualized academic support, scholars are supported in areas based on their needs. 
-Integrated Project-Based Learning, each unit scholars cover this year is subject integrated, allows scholars to explore content deeply, and have choices regarding their end product. 
 
We look forward to exploring with you this school year!
