Administrators spend so much time worrying about discipline of minor issues, that it takes good students out of too many classes. Tardy to class by 10 seconds? Go to "Sweep" (1 class detention) and miss the class. Not sitting in your seat when the bell rings? Go to sweep. You lifted your arms and someone saw your belly button? Referral (which means you will likely miss more class). Teachers and Vice Principal spend way too much time policing non-issues, that they forget the reason they are there; to teach kids subject matter! The school is mostly taught through online coursework, so the teachers spend too little time teaching already. No wonder this and many other Pinal County public schools score so low. This, by far, is the worst school any of my children have been in, and I have kids from 13-21. If you sign up for their phone notifications, expect your phone to ring at least once a day for stuff that isn't even applicable or worthy of a call (super annoying!) The school district and the administration need to get their priorities straight, and provide a good, positive learning environment, and stop running good students off to alternative educational programs.

This school is the best school I've ever been at!

This school WAS terrible until a few years ago when Dr. Richards took over as principal and the florence district took over. Before Dr. Richards we didn't have a marching band, a student council, a cheer team or any AP classes. Now we have all of this things and the school is really good and very safe. everyone gets along and they really push academics.

1/10. Horrible School. They need to think of the students and not themselves. Students need to do better. Teachers need to do better. We are here to learn and achieve, not sit there and get nothing done.

This is my first year at Foothills, and from the moment I got there I didn't enjoy it. My main issue is with the students - many talk about dropping out and I hear about people getting suspended all the time. As a student who wants to go to college and actually cares about my education, being in an environment where the kids around me don't really care about graduating isn't really helping me grow as a student. I haven't made any good friends in the almost year that I've been here, because overall many of the people there won't like you if you don't fit into their cookie cutter expectations. Some of the only people I actually get along with at that school are my teachers.
