Our 4 children have been a part of Foothills for 6 years. We are grateful to be a part of Foothills. Our children continue to grow and flourish with each passing school year. Foothills offers online courses, AP courses, STEM, dual enrollment courses with Grand Canyon University and an extensive menu of course offerings. The small class size and school size is a major bonus that makes for a very happy mom.
