PARENT QUESTIONS – Early Learners
At Foothills School, we consider parents to be our partners in their child’s education. Your thoughtful
response to the questions below will help us understand who your child is as a learner and what your
family is hoping for in a Foothills education. Please answer these questions on a different sheet of
paper; short paragraphs are fine.
1. What are your short-term and long-term educational goals for your child and how does Foothills
School fit with your vision?
2. Please describe your child’s general temperament, including strengths and challenges,
motivation and needs. What activities does your child enjoy most?
3. Please describe your child’s previous group or school experiences? What aspects of a Foothills
School experience are appealing to you and your child?
4. Collaboration and Project Based Learning are important aspects of a Foothills School education.
How does your child work with other students and teachers? What do you see as your child’s
strengths and challenges in Foothills’ collaborative learning environment?
5. Parent participation and a strong sense of community are essential elements in the success of
our school. Please share how your family would like to participate in the life of the school.
6. Does your child have any special learning, physical or social needs for which s/he may require
additional help or assistance to be successful at Foothills? If yes, please explain. (If your child
has ever been tested or evaluated for learning differences, behavioral or emotional challenges,
please submit complete copies of this information with your application.)
Please include a recent photograph of your family to accompany your application.
