Student body and faculty

The school currently has 490 students from 30 surrounding cities and towns. There are 120 faculty and staff members, making up a 6:1 student-to-teacher-ratio. The school has two divisions—the lower school, with grades kindergarten–5 and middle school with grades 6–9. Lower school tuition for 2014–2015 is $22,150 and middle school tuition is $26,050. Tuition is all-inclusive. In 2013–14, Foote awarded $1.6 million in financial aid to 21 percent of the student body.

After Foote, most students go on to attend private high schools, with about 60 percent attending as day students at schools such as New York University, Amherst College, Harvard University, Brown University, Wesleyan University, and the University of Connecticut.[2]


The campus covers 17.3 acres (70,000 m2) and has 11 buildings, including a new science and technology building, a 47,000-volume library, a black-box theater, a gymnasium, music rooms, computer and science labs, three playing fields, two art studios, an activities center, and a tree-filled area for outdoor activities. The campus is split into two sections, one for the lower and one for middle school, with the main building, known as the Common Unit, located between them. This contains the library, music rooms, the art studios, offices, the front desk, and classrooms. The Foote School integrates technology across the curriculum and also several dedicated computer labs.
