Chil­dren at Foote learn by solv­ing real-world chal­lenges that de­velop their cu­rios­ity, col­lab­o­ra­tion, em­pa­thy and re­silience. Each day bal­ances aca­demic rigor and play, free­dom and re­spon­si­bil­ity— each with the same high ex­pec­ta­tions of hard work and joy in learn­ing.

Stu­dents ex­plore a wide-rang­ing cur­ricu­lum in lit­er­a­ture, his­tory, math­e­mat­ics, science, writ­ing and tech­nol­ogy. In ev­ery grade, they par­tic­i­pate in Span­ish or Chi­nese, as well as drama, mu­sic, art and phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion. All grades ben­e­fit from time for un­struc­tured play and daily re­cess.

Foote stu­dents love com­ing to school be­cause each day is filled with hands-on learn­ing chal­lenges that re­quire cre­ativ­ity and team­work. Foote of­fers a safe place for young chil­dren to grow and ex­plore, and a wel­com­ing and di­verse com­mu­nity for fam­i­lies.

Foote’s 18-acre cam­pus fea­tures 11 class­room build­ings, a 48,000-vol­ume li­brary, science and tech­nol­ogy labs, a black-box the­ater, mu­sic rooms, art stu­dios, a gym­na­sium, play­ing fields, teach­ing gar­dens and a wooded area for out­door ed­u­ca­tion. Stu­dents ben­e­fit from our cen­tral lo­ca­tion in New Haven, which presents off-cam­pus learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties from mu­seum vis­its to ser­vice-learn­ing projects.

Our size is just right: small enough to build a closeknit com­mu­nity, yet large enough so stu­dents can in­ter­act with a va­ri­ety of class­mates and diver­sity of per­spec­tives through­out their years at Foote.

Cen­tral to Foote’s strong aca­demic pro­gram is our com­mit­ment to diver­sity and in­clu­sion. Our stu­dents learn to cel­e­brate our diver­sity and ac­tively seek op­por­tu­ni­ties to serve and lead.

Chil­dren leave Foote with a glob­ally in­spired ed­u­ca­tion and pride in the con­tri­bu­tions they have made to the school com­mu­nity. Our grad­u­ates go on to be­come judges and jour­nal­ists, artists and diplo­mats, en­trepreneurs, restau­ra­teurs and more, ap­ply­ing their Foote School ex­pe­ri­ences to lead lives of pur­pose.
