Foothill Falcons Flying High!

One of the many reasons Pleasanton is such a great place to live are the schools. Out of the two local high schools, Foothill High School was just recognized as a 2019 California Distinguished School by the California Department of Education! Foothill was one of thirteen schools honored with this award in Alameda County, being previously awarded with the title in 1994, 2001, and 2005.

Foothill was awarded for its outstanding education programs and practices, “achieving exceptional student performance for two consecutive school years or closing the achievement gap between two school years”, according to the Pleasanton Unified School District website.

Foothill Principal Sebastian Bull said, “We are extremely proud to receive this statewide honor and look forward to celebrating with our Foothill community. This recognition belongs to our amazing students, families, and staff for always striving for excellence”.

Superintendent David Haglund said, “Congratulations to Foothill High School for this well-deserved recognition. Thank you to our amazing Foothill community for the effort and support that contributed to this distinction and continues to help our Falcons soar”.

We personally know what an exceptional school Foothill is with many of the Armario Venema Homes team members’ children previously and currently attending the school.

Whether you’re starting a family or have a family and are looking to move to an award-winning school district, give us a call. We are happy to discuss your options!

Amador Valley High School in Pleasanton California

Pleasanton CA SchoolsIf you live in the East Bay, and have kids, there is a good chance you may have heard of Amador Valley High School in Pleasanton, California. It is a California Distinguished School and has achieved a National Blue Ribbon status. Its first graduation took place way back in 1923 and as recently as 2014, the school had over 2,500 students.

Amador Valley High has its rival, as all good Californian high schools so often do, and the Foothill High School, located on the opposite side of town is the one. Amador Valley High began with no more than eight students and eventually became well known for producing quality municipal bands, cheerleading sections and high-ranking sports teams.

This public high school opens at 7.00 a.m. during it’s semesters and school is finished by 3.00 p.m. Most of the students begin their first lesson at 8.00 a.m., with the first classes usually being left as a free period for most.

The school offers 12 varsity sports teams for the boys, and a further 11 for the girls. It offers intense sporting programs in basketball, cross country running, soccer, football, basketball, baseball, golf, lacrosse, softball and swimming. There are many extra-curricular classes available for diving, spirit squad, tennis, wrestling, water polo, volleyball and track and field events like the pentathlon and decathlon events.

There is a big music and band program that takes place at the school too. It has its own orchestra and glee club. Many of the bands and varsity sports teams are used in special events outside the school. The school’s Marching Band and Colour Guard are often seen competing in the Western Band Circuit events.

Pleasanton Football

The Amador Valley Marching Dons are highly decorated with several high finishes at the WBA events. The Math Team is also regularly well placed in the Mathematical Association of America competitions.

The school even has its own Robotics Team where students design unmanned vehicle systems and use them for display and competition at science fairs across the country. In 2001, the school built and designed a Manta Ray AUV weighing in at just over 200 pounds, in which Amador’s robotic and science team achieved second place.

Speaking and debating are two topics which the school emphasises on. It has held mock trails and received accolades for its performances in public speaking. The Amador Theatre has been part of the school since 1930 – just another string to its bow of outstanding performances and team work which takes place there.
