Our Mission is for all students to successfully learn to the best of their ability in an environment conducive to lifelong intellectual, social, and personal development.
The FMS Vision is that each student will think critically, have a productive work ethic, be intellectually inquisitive, and participate in a collaborative learning environment. In addition, each student will learn to communicate effectively, be self-motivated, and be a responsible citizen.

Renaissance is a nationally recognized program created to recognize students for their academic achievements. At Foothill we recognize students for perfect attendance, improvements they have made in their grades or in the classroom, as well as many other things. One of our main forms of recognition is based on students’ Grade Point Average (GPA) from their previous semester. These are recognized through our Renaissance Cards.
We have four different levels of Renaissance Cards. The Platinum Card is for students whose unweighted GPA is 4.0. Gold Card is for students whose unweighted GPA is 3.5 – 3.9. The Silver Card is for those students whose GPA is between 3.0 and 3.49. The Bronze Card is for students whose GPAs are between 2.5 and 2.99 or students who have improved their GPA by .5 or greater from one triad to the next. In order to be eligible for a card you must fit into one of the four categories and you must have no F’s or U’s on your report card.
In order to qualify for the end of the year trip to Knott’s Berry Farm a student must have earned four platinum, gold or silver cards or have earned 3 platinum, gold or silver cards along with one bronze card. Student’s attendance, tardies and citizenship will also be taken into consideration. Rallies will be held to recognize student achievement and accomplishments.
