Enrichment classes are included in the weekly schedule for all students. Students enjoy art, music, drama, French (Kgn-5th), and technology. Along with these subjects, our students will experience studies in archeology and nutrition/wellness. Our middle school students enjoy elective classes such as yearbook, debate, journalism, and Student Council. A well-rounded school experience allows students many opportunities in which to excel. Adding diversity and interest to the school day makes learning a joy.
After School Clubs
After school options include: private music lessons, drama club, choir, foreign language clubs, and special interest classes such as American Sign Language, sports clinics such as golf and soccer, dance and cheer squad (K-4th). Options may vary each trimester.
Beyond the Classroom Education
Field trips allow the learning process at Foothill Oaks Academy to extend beyond the boundaries of the classroom walls. First-hand experiences and observations often help a student to assimilate information more thoroughly. All classes participate in one educational field trip per trimester, to places such as:
Norton Simon Museum
Griffith Park Observatory
California Science Center
Huntington Library Art Galleries
Los Angeles County Arboretum
J. Paul Getty Museum
Theatre Works Plays
The Los Angeles Zoo
San Gabriel Mission
Museum of Tolerance
In addition, our middle school students participate in week-long academic trips designed to enhance their curriculum. (destinations may vary)
5th - Rawhide Ranch
6th - Marine Biology Camp
7th - Science Adventure Camp
8th - Washington D.C. (History/Government based field trip)
In our technology lab, equipped with the latest hardware and software systems, our students learn applied technology. The technology instructor works with the teachers to make projects and lessons applicable to grade level curriculum. Students get their first experience in the computer lab in pre-school, as the very basic foundation is put in place. Utilizing a program called Scholastic Keys, and moving in later grades to Microsoft Office Suite, proficiency builds each year as students master all the applications.
