MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Foothill High School Mathematics Department is to provide an educational experience in mathematics that helps students prepare for successful roles in an ever changing society. This is accomplished through our commitment to excellent teaching, a well-designed curriculum, and a supportive environment for all our students.

In support of our mission, we are committed to professional development, updating curriculum, making real world connections, and incorporating technology. We employ an assortment of assessment techniques, provide a variety of teaching styles, and maintain intervention plans for students that need extra help.

Students are challenged to develop skills in analysis, reasoning, creativity, collaborative learning, and self-expression as they gain knowledge of mathematics. We maintain high academic and behavioral expectations, make every classroom minute count and encourage all students to realize their full potential.
