Foothill Preparatory School is composed of students at the secondary level, from grades nine through twelve. The academic term is a semester system, where each student is expected to be enrolled in a minimum of six classes per semester. Graduation requirements are configured to meet the academic entrance requirements of most American colleges and universities.
Classroom sizes at the school seeks to uphold a student-to-teacher ratio of 10:1. Although this number may seem modest, small classrooms provide a rather comfortable environment for students to learn and interact easily with instructors. Another benefit of classrooms this size is the friendships that can be developed in this family-oriented environment.
