This is my ninth year here at Foothills Montessori School and I truly believe that this school has changed me for the better. Foothills is a very small environment in which I have learned to treat others, myself, and my surroundings with respect, but most importantly, I have learned who I am. When I entered the 7th grade, I was a little afraid, but I began to realize who I wanted to be and who I was as a person. I have really enjoyed this school, mainly because it makes me feel challenged all the time, and inspires me to do things that I wouldn’t normally attempt to do. This school has an amazing aura about it, where teachers and students connect and students become the best of friends, even after they have left the school. I have always struggled with knowing myself and what I want to do with my life. Foothills has helped me do just that. This school has helped turn me into the individual that I was always meant to be and has nurtured my personality for a brighter future. If you, as a parent, are being given the chance to send your kid to this school, don’t make the mistake of letting that opportunity go by, because you might not get another.
