Foothill Middle School Walnut Creek I’ve recently helped a client find a very nice home for her and her husband on the border of Alamo and Walnut Creek, California. She has been involved in public school administration for many years, and since I have three boys, the conversation eventually turned from home buying to the state of our school system. I am actually a big fan of the schools systems in Concord, Walnut Creek and Alamo. I keep tabs on what people say because I often find myself acting as a resource for homebuyers with school age children, and I want to make sure that I do not steer them wrong. This got me thinking about one middle school in particular that I find myself steering clients toward: Foothill Middle School. My client informed me that great middle schools have a thriving after-school curriculum of athletics, as well as clubs, intramurals, student government, and peer tutoring that keep kids engaged, and are most importantly supervised after the final bell rings. Nestled at the foot of Mt. Diablo, Foothill Middle School consists of the attributes my client said make a great middle school. Foothill offers extraordinary vistas to be enjoyed by both students and faculty alike. It encourages a cooperative and supportive educational partnership among students, staff, and the parents that provides resources and support aimed at enhancing student learning and ensuring their educational success. One especially great resource is The Creek, an after Middle School Youth Center within the school premises. The Creek is a private non-profit program welcoming ALL youth in grades 6 through 8, and is open after school till 6pm. It provides an opportunity for middle school students to grow socially, emotionally, physically and most important cognitively by providing quality programs that support learning activities, positive peer and adult interactions, as well as activities that promote confidence and self esteem. Unfortunately for my family we do not live near Foothill Middle School walnut creek, so my sons could not attend the Creek. But, hopefully, yours can.
