22 Parent Reviews for Foothill Country Day School

My son attends and likes this school. Our daughter will attend soon. We've had mixed experiences. We've witnessed the school going through transition, changes in headmasters, we've seen teachers come and go, and the construction and opening of the upper school building (which is lovely). Pros: The ...  Read more

So basically families are staying because there is no other choice-not because they are satisfied. Anyone who says anything (teacher or parent) which is thought as a different perspective from the administration is made to feel unwelcome.The quality is going downhill but the tuition continues to go up.Now ...  Read more

The only reason I have rated this school one star is because of how it use to be. My kids in the early years benefited greatly from the programs and small class size. While looking at the rest of the reviews, basically I am reading between the lines that many are here because there is no other alternative. ...  Read more

Yes FCDS has gone through some changes from what it used to be. (Whatever that is supposed to mean?) However, a parent needs to consider what the alternatives are. In the area there are few. You can not beat the small class size, teaching of good study habits, diverse curriculum, and love for learning ...  Read more

The quality is going downhill but the tuition continues to go up. We feel obligated to update the ratings of this school so the people on ...  Read more

Some teachers at FCDS are excellent and others are not at all. Right now we are extremely disappointed with headmaster because he decided to get rid of excellent second grade teacher and promote poor first grade teacher. Now some children will have same poor teacher again next year! Many parents are ...  Read more

Do not send your children to this school if they have slightly above average math capabilities as they will be under challenged, bored, and at times, frustrated. Several parents have raised their concerns regarding the math program, however no action has been taken to date. There is no individualization ...  Read more

Academics, curriculum and teaching at the upper school (grades 6, 7 and 8) are top-notch. The school, however, hasn't been able to successfully implement the character-building component of its mission statement because there is no real parent support for anything which is viewed to interfere with academics.. ...  Read more

Best academics found in a private school ages 5-14! Character building and solid core fundamentals needed to get into a great high school and do exceptionally well. If you are at Foothill Country Day, a solid foundation has been set for the balance of your academic career.
