    I graduated from Foothills back in the 1990's when when my parents wanted to homeschool their children but didn't want us to have the stigma of an "invented/crazy" education. The school was able provide me with individual attention and a tailored education that incorporated my interests and met my academic needs. They even were even able to leverage my family's international travel during the school year something the schools I had previously attended were unable (and unwilling) to accommodate. The summary for parents interested in Foothills' results I graduated a year early attended UCSD and am now a technology executive at a publishing company.

    I love FHS! My education is challenging & I work at my own pace. Here I'm not heldback by other students or 'check-the-box' assignments.
