I have 2 daughters--one attended Jefferson and one is now attending Fulbright Elementary. I cannot say enough good things about this school. It is open, bright and colorful and full of energy. Students love to learn and teachers love to teach at Fulbright! We have found it to be the best choice for our daughter who has special needs...the school is completely accessible, unlike other schools in the area. The staff is caring and attentive and all parents are ready and willing to jump in to help at any event! We love it!!

I have two children at Fulbright, and we have been here for 4 years. We love this neighborhood school! It is small enough that the administration, teachers, and staff know the children and are attentive to their needs. My children have received excellent instruction in the classroom and have benefitted from the enriched activities including art, music, and gifted and talented. In addition to a stellar teaching staff, Fulbright has an involved PTA that offers a wide variety of programs. The Fulbright administration and faculty embrace the PTA and work with it to enhance all students' experience. Fulbright is a diverse school, and I am grateful that my children have been able to experience friends from a wide variety of backgrounds. Go Falcons!

We love Fulbright. My son has been there 4 years. He has been challenged by the staff and has had excellent benchmark results. We couldn't ask for a better school for our children. There is a very community feel about the school and a high level of parental involvement. Go Falcons!!!!!

Fubright Elementary School. We adore this school and all the extra's that are provided. Fulbright has two Gifted and Talented Teachers who work with the students during and after school on a number of math and science activities. We also have a music night once a month. Each grade will do a program for families and friends to attend. There is also Fulbright's Art Night where the students will present their painting or print dressed as a famous artist. Families are invited to attend and receive an overview from each student about the live of the artist they are dressed up as. This years Fulbright Mathletes Team came in First Place in the District. There are so many ways for students to get involved with a club like cheerleading, pep squad, math club, student council, basketball team and music. We feel very blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school.

This school is absolutely wonderful! The teachers and staff truly care about the students. Our daughter started pre-k at Fulbright, and we were very pleased to see how challenging the curriculum was. She is now in Kindergarten and we are still more than pleased. You could not ask for a better school, a more involved PTA, or a more caring and bright environment for learning! Tons of extra curricular activities and teachers that are involved!!!

I am a parent of a Kindergartener and I LOVE Fulbright! My daughter did not attend Pre-K and we were very concerned that she would be behind. My daughter is very smart and a fast learner and she fell right into place. The teachers amd Administrators are wonderful! They know many if the children by name. I enjoy watching them give personal attention and allow hugs from students. My daughter is a big hugger and loves to have adult conversations whenever possible.. I also love how many parents and PTA members are so involved. There is no lack of events to volunteer for and many willing participants! I am looking forward to my daughters continued growth amd learning during her Fulbright years. I attended Joe T. Robinson Elementary And this 'open' classroom setting is nothing compared to that school.. but once the kids understnand what is expected and use their inside voice.. it does not hamper their learning. I would recommend this school to everyone! I am so honored my daughter is able to attend!

this school is intolerable to students from the teachers! when my daughter went to care she came home upset and in worse case even crying! and she was on cheer and she hated it because she felt like her teacher did not like her and treated her unfairly in comparison to the other girls the only thing good about that school is the PT because they are really involved with the events for their school

My daughter attended 3-5, and the school had always been great! The administrator and some of the support staff for the two years was not. All of this turned around in the last year, and Fulbright is indeed a wonderful, well-rounded school with great administrators, teachers, and some of the most active volunteeers and PTA you will ever see! I love this school!

Fulbright is an excellent school. This is my son and daughter's first year attending this school.They have really helped my son academically considering that he came from a charter school that didn't teach him anything and got him up to the grade level he should have been in within 5mos. I recommend this school to anyone. It even has pre-k as well. All 3 of my kids will be attending Fulbright next yearl!

Fulbright is crowded and hectic. The open pod design means that all the students in a grade hear all four classrooms at once. The school's test scores are above average, but that's more a reflection of the demographics of the neighborhood rather than the quality of education received at the school.

My daughter went here for Kinder and First grade, then for Second grade she went to the new school Roberts which is within walking distance from our house. It didn't take too long to realize what a treasure we had at Fulbright, and now I am doing anything possible to change her back. Fulbright is an amazing school!

This is my son's 4th year at Fulbright. He loves it! Each year we have been lucky to have wonderful teachers. They have all taken extra time to challenge him and to instill in him a desire to challenge himself. His teachers and the administration have always made themselves available.

When we moved here from antoher state, eveyone told us how lucky we were to be in the fulbright Zone. Maybe it's because I was comparing it to our former school, but I was shocked at how the aides we allowed to yell at the kids. We put in one year, then were thrilled when my daughter's name came up on the list to go to Gibbs.

I have two children at fulbright, and I have to say I am extremely pleased. This is their 2nd year, and they both love it! the only thing I can say that I have not been happy with is the principal seems to not be with it at times. I have tried to contact her on 2 occasions this year, and get no response from her. My son has been there 2 years and she has asked him twice if he is a new student. But overall it is a fantastic school, and the teachers are excellent! Kudos to mrs. Watson, and mrs. Shelton! we love you!

This is not a school for the easily distracted, ADHD, or kids who cannot concentrate with a lot of noise. The school is 'open' meaning that the classrooms are not separated by doors and walls, but rather partitions and curtains, so you hear noises from the other classes around you. Its very loud all the time. Even the library is not in a closed room. Each of the class areas has an open window out to the hallway, which carries noise from the hallway into the classroom. My child finds it very hard to concentrate and pay attention due to the noise, and this is not well understood by his teacher who believes a 9 year old is capable of sitting still, and concentrating for 5 hours out of the day and ignore the very loud noises of the open space school.

My child has special needs and has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). At first it was difficult to get cooperation in having her IEP implemented. However, once I let the principal know that I was serious about having it put into action, she and the other staff responded with respect and enthusiasm. My child had been to two other public schools and was miserable at each of them. Although Fulbright may not have the highest test scores, I believe the reason is because Fulbright has a lot of chilren with special needs. Academic programs, availablility of music, art and other extracurricular activities is good. Fulbright probably has the best parent involvement of any elementary school in Little Rock. My child's fifth grade teacher is our favorite. We will miss Fulbright Elementary, home of the Falcons. We believe that Fulbright Elementary is the best elementary school in the Little Rock School District.

This is one of the best schools in the Little Rock School District. The teachers are highly qualified and show creativity and flexibility with their teaching. The principal is very involved and approachable. The parent involvement is high. My son walks home from school, where he is escorted by an adult as far as allowable. The only complaint I have is the carpool line/traffic in the mornings. Traffic is high on Pleasant Valley Drive and not all drivers appear to be concerned they are in a school zone. But as for the school, I am very pleased.

I have four children that have or are attending this school. As a parent I see continuous improvement in the quality of teaching, commitment to excellence and parent involvement. In the four years we've lived in Little Rock, we've seen the PTA budget triple, the school and parents combine to purchase new software for a new computer lab, add an art program to the curriculum and win awards for volunteer hours per student. The teachers are warm and engaged, always seeking to pull the best from each student. The administration is accessible and commmitted. An excellent school!
