Principal's Message

February 2024


Dear Trojan Family,


As your new principal, I am excited to be a champion of the traditions and legacy that make Foothill High School the best place to be! Though I am new to the school this semester, I look forward to being part of your student’s educational journey during the 2023-2024 school year. The Foothill High School staff strives to implement Foothill’s mission of providing a safe and inclusive learning environment that educates, empowers, and inspires all students to achieve high levels of learning and to become caring, respectful, responsible citizens who are college- and career-ready. By committing to the Trojan values of Focus, Honor, and Success, we hope to support your student on his or her path to success.


Inspiring student success is a collaborative effort, and at Foothill High School, we encourage your involvement to help our students be successful in each way they want to achieve. You can do this by working closely with the teachers, counselors, and other support staff to ensure success in the classroom. You can also encourage them to get involved with the various activities, athletics, and clubs that Foothill has to offer. Our school is filled with dedicated teachers, counselors, support staff, and administrators who share the common goal of seeing our students be successful during their experience at Foothill High.


Every day, we are committed to our students experiencing the Latin phrase on our seal, Gaudium Eruditionis, or the joy of learning. By working together, we hope to make this year the best year yet in your student’s educational path.


Fight on, Trojans!
