Welcome to the fully engaged, fully alive Foote School experience.

Foote is the kind of school where your child runs inside when you drop them off and is smiling when you pick them up. It’s a place where students—and teachers, and staff members—feel fully engaged, fully alive. 

There’s a lot of learning by doing: experimenting, collaborating, revising. Students are always digging deeper, asking hard questions, looking for new challenges. It’s a K–9 school, so every resource is dedicated to lower and middle school students, and students take leadership roles at each stage. They come from all over the region, from different backgrounds.

But everyone is here for the experience, the Foote School experience. It stays with you forever. 

This is what it means to be fully engaged.

“The best thing about being a Foote School student is having a great support system from the time you get on campus. Foote School students and faculty are welcoming, respectful, and willing to help you navigate through hardships you may experience.”

Will, Grade 8
