 Using Chess As A Tool for Learning

Chess Team 2021

While Foothills Chess has a long tradition of being among the strongest high school programs in the nation, it's not about conquering the competition.

What is the District’s Open Enrollment Program?

Open enrollment is a state law that allows students to attend schools outside of their resident school if the receiving school has the capacity to accept them. CFSD residents who wish to attend a school other than their home area school must apply under the open enrollment program as well as non-resident families.
