Foothill Plus...a school within a school!


Foothill Plus High School is an alternative educational option in the Shasta Union High School District. It is a “school within a school” format designed for part-time credit recovery without having to transfer students away from their home campus. The goal of Foothill Plus is to provide social structure and educational interventions in collaboration with the comprehensive high school that assists students to graduate on time and pursue post-secondary educational and vocational options.

Students in the school are 10th and 11th grade students (16 years of age minimum) who are motivated to attend school and achieve academic success. If you have a student you believe would be an ideal candidate for Foothill Plus, please email our FHS PLUS counselor, Suzanne Dickinson at:

Students who successfully complete the district requirements for graduation will receive a diploma from Foothill High School, and will be a part of the graduation ceremony. Additionally, we encourage all students to continue peer relationships, participate in sports and pursue other school activities at Foothill High School.

Foothill Plus has six grade reports throughout the year.Students also receive progress reports every three weeks to notify parents and students of their progress in Plus. We have two sessions — am and pm. The schedule aligns with Foothill High School bell schedule. In this way Plus students may take FHS elective classes and Career Technical Education. Our class sizes range from about 22-25 students.


Foothill High School is located in Palo Cedro, CA. We are proud to be part of the Shasta Union High School District.
