Long before the leaves started to change colors, student-athletes at The Foote School were gathering on the fields and trails for fall season sports practices and a desire to play to their fullest potential.
As is best practice for independent schools, every few years, we embark on a comprehensive, reflective planning process, the results of which are intended to focus Foote's energy and resources for long-term success. We are excited to share with you Phase I: our reimagined mission, vision, and values.
A project that began in 2018 finally came to fruition this fall, and a community effort saw the arrival of six hens that will live on our campus as part of a learning model spanning both divisions.
Foote students discover themselves not only as scholars and thinkers, but as citizens and human beings.
Foote is a diverse community where students are taught to recognize and respect individual differences.
Our inquiry-based approach makes learning an active experience for students.
Service learning projects teach students to step beyond themselves and develop empathy and understanding.
Foote nurtures children's natural curiosity into a lifelong love of learning.
We teach students to view setbacks as speed bumps on the path to greater knowledge.
