What Our Parents Are Saying

HEATHER C.

Parent

"As a working parent, we have relied heavily on the after school program, and it has been an excellent opportunity for kids of different grades to mingle together, and it has always been positive. A huge shout out to Ms Nayeli, who worked very patiently and compassionately with my daughter when morning drop offs were a difficult part of our morning routine."

"I was hesitant to enroll my son into preschool but after being at home with me for 2 1/2 years he was showing signs that he needed more interaction with children his age. I toured Foothill Oaks Academy and knew right away that it was the best fit for my son. It took a few weeks for him to adjust, but the teachers and principal were always reassuring. Since starting at Foothill Oaks Academy he has blossomed and seems so happy. He has learned so much and his vocabulary has expanded exponentially."

Parent

"I have three kids attending FOA, they started school last year in 1st and 2nd, and my third just started preschool there. They are now in 2nd and 3rd. The principle Mrs Ha and all the teachers have been very wonderful. Mrs Ha is welcoming and pleasant to speak with. If you have any concerns she is easy to talk to, very receptive, and takes your concerns seriously. What I like most are the small class sizes. My kids receive a lot of attention, and they feel very important. All the kids at the school know each other and are pretty close. The staff are pleasant and friendly. The school also offers Spanish, Chinese and Engineering classes for the elementary kids. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for a quality education, and a positive experience."

"Our son has been enrolled in preschool here for two years now and we are so happy with our choice. We explored many options before enrolling and we found exactly what we were looking for at Foothill. The principle is wonderful and all teachers involved with preK do a fantastic job meeting the children at their level. Our little one loves school here and it is due to the fun, caring, considerate staff and their dedication!"

"This school provided a good all-around education package for my children. The formative years at FOA prepared them well for their high-school. The small size class is definitely a plus. The tuition is very reasonable compared to other private schools in San Gabriel Valley area."

"Ms Sandra is my son's teacher and I appreciate how inviting she is while also maintaining structure in a classroom of 11 three years olds. I have no idea how she has the patience but she is an angel. I've since referred many families to FOA and they are all also very grateful to have their kids enrolled. I highly recommend this preschool! They also offer elementary school, and although I don't personally have kids in the older classrooms I know that they have small class size and very dedicated teachers."

Parent

"Foothill Oaks helped my son, then a seventh grader, mature as a student and as an individual. Foothill Oaks partnered along-side with me to teach my son new habits and were patient enough to help my son unlearn unhealthy habits. With patience and a lot of hard work, my partnership with Foothill Oaks resulted in my son reaching grade level academics, learn new social skills and more importantly helped build my son's self-esteem. For the first time, my son believed in himself as a student and was able to see the possibility of college in his future."

"At FOA, the Administration clearly has a love for children and learning which passes down to the teachers and students. Almost every single day, I see the Director of the PS and the Principal outside playing with children! It's so beautiful to see and it sets a strong energy of teamwork."

She is planning to be a doctor specializing in neonatology and plans to attend USC for her undergraduate studies. Thank you Foothill Oaks Academy for instilling academic discipline and preparing my daughter for her future."

Parent

"Anita Oaks School is a magical place. My children have been there since preschool, going on 10 years now. It is small and nurturing, virtually every child is special there. Which explains why the kids blossom into self-confident, bright students that get accepted to some of the best private high schools in the valley. The school is strong on academics, but still has a lot of extras in their program, such as music, PE, sports, art, language, and technology. The parents are very involved with the school, so Anita Oaks has a community vibe that is quite unique."

Parent

"This is a really wonderful school! They care about our child and provide a place where she is thriving and we couldn't be happier! Overall, it is an environment that our child is getting the attention from the smaller class size and confidence in herself not only in the classroom but also from the extracurricular activities provided by the school."
