Dear Trojan Parents and Students,
Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year! As the new Principal of Foothill High School, I want you to know how excited and humbled I am to be chosen to lead our great school. Foothill has long been a school full of tradition and pride. This is an unprecedented time in education, and I assure you that the Trojan staff is working diligently to ensure the academic success of each student. As educators, we are aware of the challenges the past school year has brought to our families. We are committed to working with our students to address any issues that might impede student success in our classrooms.
As we begin the new school year, our enrollment has grown to 2242 students while we welcome 583 incoming freshmen to the Foothill Family. We remain committed to providing our students with the highest quality instruction while maintaining a safe learning environment that encourages our Trojans to Focus on the many opportunities available to them. Our students are expected to Honor our campus, history, their peers, and themselves. The best way our students can experience Success is by getting involved. Please encourage your student to participate in the many academic, athletic, and activity programs on campus. Join a club, play a sport, attend a school dance, and integrate yourself into the culture of the campus.
At Foothill High School, we have a variety of academic programs and pathways designed for students to personalize their education. Our counselors are knowledgeable and equipped to work with your student to develop an academic plan to meet their needs. Please support your student by staying in contact with the academic counselor and communicate regarding any necessities.
To ensure the success of our students, Foothill will focus on the following guiding values:
Focus, Honor, & Success! These values will help our students to find achievement both inside and outside the classroom. It is our hope that students will internalize these values as they successfully graduate from Foothill and prepare for life after high school. You will also notice the use of #WeAreTrojans. This saying reminds our students that they are part of the Foothill Family. We are proud to be Trojans and we celebrate our piece of Foothill history.
We will always place students at the forefront of our decisions. We are humbled to be entrusted with the essential task of providing a well-rounded education to our Trojan students. As the adults in the Foothill community, we are partners in preparing our students for post-secondary success!
