Welcome to Foothills school
Grades 6-12 Independent Study

Foothills High School provides an alternative educational learning environment which offers individualized education plans for students whose needs may best be met outside of the regular classroom setting.  Independent study is an alternative to classroom instruction and consistent with SMUSD course of study.  It is not alternative curriculum.

FHS is an open entry/exit program and participation is a voluntary choice made by the parent or caregiver.  Students receive high school credit for all coursework completed and can graduate as soon as they have completed the Board approved requirements.  With this in mind, acceleration of the academic program is a possibility.
