I had a problem with my child and bullying. The 6th grade prinicple did not get on her job until I went over her and the issue finally got resolved. But I have to say other than that I loved my children there. There are a lot of activities for the Kids and I love the fact it isn't a big school. The teachers are ok. Some of them will go all the way out to help the students.

I attend Fuller Middle School and this is what I have to say about the school. It is by far the most judgemental school you could ever attend. The teachers are very rude and pick favorites, they insult students and laugh about it afterwards.. The kids that go to Fuller Middle are idiotic. Every now and then you might find a nice person but other then that 5 out of 500 chance you do, the school is a horrible place to be. I hate every thing about it. Every last thing. I could go on and on but I rather not.

Fuller staff and teachers make this a great learning institution. My first daughter was in the TAG program and loved the challenge, great teacher support. Even after school tutoring, teacher volunteer to stay for the entire class if needed. Parents can sit in. My second daughter is in TAG and loves the teacher fighting for the students. It's cool to be smart here. Behavior problems don't overshadow academics! New laptops and Ipads.

I recently spoke with the media center specialsit, who couln't give me a definitive answer as to when the center would be open. The closest she could come was sometime after orientation. She actually became annoyed when i asked when that would be. Are you kidding me, i wanted to ask, but instead just thanked her for her time. Maybe she was just having a bad day, well morning. Tsk...

I attend Fuller in the 2009- 2010 school year and i could not ask for a more supportive group of teachers and team mates. Fuller has a greta Tag progfram and even though some of the kids are misbehaved sometimes, Fuller is a great place to attend school. At the begining of thje school year i did not know anyone and nowadays i know everybody and everybody knows me. I LOVE ATTENDING FULLER.

Fuller middle School is the best! I am in 7th grade tag and I play on the Football team and am plannimg to try out for the basketball and track teams. I've only been in 7th grade for a week but I can tell that this is going to be a good year already! 6th grade was fun too! Mrs May, Mrs Luth, Mrs Callaway, and Mrs. Runyan were the best 6th Grade TAG teachers a kid could ask for. Being at this school makes Junior high fun!!!

Hello and dI would like to commemorate the seventh grade tag program. Mrs. Halton, Mrs. Stevens, Mrs. Parker, and Dr. MIller are excellent teachers. As I write this, I would like to talk about the math program of Fuller Middle School. Math Counts was a program that helped me excell in my math skills so I could compete at a state level. I would like to thank all of the teachers that have brought me through the seventh grade and I would like to thank the tag program for making me a smarter student.

I am a parent of an 8th grader who not in the 'Amazing' TAG program. My child has worked hard and has gotten decent grades. I find this school geered towards the gifted programs. There is very little parent involvement. How do you expect parent involvement if the teachers don't do their part. You have Edline for the parents to keep up with their kids but if you don't make your teachers use it what good is it. Then when you have a child in trouble why didn't you know about it until it is past the point of help. The office staff is not helpful, they don't know much. What happened to the 8th grade graduation ceremony? Only if your child had an award the parents were invited and had a ceremony, the rest of the grade gets no recognition. Have seen better schools.

i am a current student at Fuller Middle school....i would have to say that the TAG program is soo far the best ive ever seen... its until you get in the eigth grade where its not the best anymore....sixth and seventh grade RAWKED! . .i would overall say you should send your student there then transfer them out of the eigth grade ...and if you put them in the pre-ap classes it would be harder for them to get a better education..but we have great sports and we go along with what we have.!

The Explorer Team for 6th grade TAG students is AMAZING! The teachers Mrs.Callaway a.k.a. the mathetician of the group is the most knowledgeable person you'll know is the math queen. Mrs. May a.k.a. The historian is the best history teacher that I ever knew. Everybody did fun activities with her, like Walk Like An Egyptian, if you did your work. Mrs. Runyan was a teacher that had a big influence on my life. She taught me responsibility and respect. The teacher that had a big influence on my life was Mrs.Poe, but she will no longer be teaching.the music courses are also great at Fuller too. Now that I am going to 7th grade I will always miss these teachers, but I will never forget the memories and skills they left for me.

I am currently in the 7th grade at Fuller. I'm in the TAG program. I love this school. I'm not sure about non-tag students on how well there classes are but mine are great!!!! My sister is in the 6th grade and attends horce mann. my step-mom thinks that is a better school which it is rated higher but i think what makes fuller great is the tag program. if you are in the 7th grade tag you can earn high school credits by doing algebra 1 and geometry in the 8th grade. the teachers are wonderful!! The teachers get involved in everything!! One thing that bothers me is the fighting problem. some teachers stand around and watch b/c there is nothing they can do. it's a middle school thing. I also like how we have block scedule. we have an extra day to do home-work and it is less stressful!!

This school rocks, I am a seventh grade tag student and I loved 6th grade. Mrs. Poe knows her way around english, Mrs. Callaway made math fun for the first time, Mrs. Runyan made me love science, Mrs. May taught me that Martin Luther King Jr. was a peacemaker. This school rocks, From the best student,

If your student is not in the Tag program it seems as though they are left out of the loop. Teachers do not communicate anything until report cards come out I am very disappointed in Fuller.

As the parent of a current 6th grader in the TAG program and a current 10th grader who went through the TAG program at Fuller, the 6th grade Explorer team is TOPS. There is not a greater group of teachers around. Historically, 7th and 8th grade have not been near as cohesive or strong. Without the TAG program or some other incentive program that attracts students outside of this area, Fuller Middle School would be hard pressed to keep their doors open. Students not in the TAG program benefit greatly from the program through the string orchestra and foreign languages and opportunities to interact with others outside of their circle.

As a parent of a child that is not in the TAG program, I can tell you that you will get too many schedule and teacher changes in the first nine weeks that if he or she is a child that requires anything other than standard curriculum to stay afloat, it will be the second nine weeks before you can count on getting a quality conference. If you have one at the first of school to meet and discuss their unique challenges, they will switch teachers on you, and will have to keep going back. It hurts a child and parent when they say they really like a teacher and you see a fresh attitude towards their work, and have them come home just to find out they have moved to a TAG class. The truth is those 'average children' need exceptional teachers to inspire them.

I don't think my son is getting the education he needs. The teachers do not always give good feed back until grades are posted. I feel no one care abuot my son unless your are in TAG. I really feel education is important and that all teachers should have some way to contact besides a phone. R Lindell

I attended Fuller for 6th, 7th, and most of 8th grade. 6th grade was very good. I was in the advanced classes, and the teachers were great. 7th grade was much like 6th, except we did more hands on activities. 8th grade was okay. I did well in all of my classes except math. The teacher refused to explain how to do the procedures for answering equations. I was failing. My parent had many meetings with the principal and said teacher. Nothing changed. I had to switch schools. I am now doing very well in my math class.

Fuller is quite a unique school. Gifted students excel there, especially if they start out on the Explorer Team and continue on as TAG students all through school. The teachers really seem to connect with kids and do their best with helping us out. I loved being in band and orchestra there. Who doesn't love playing an instrument and learning to read music? We had a lot of activites to get us involved in what we were doing. It's a great place to go to school, especially since the student gets to express his or her creativity when they take elective classes. These include French or Spanish, orchestra, band, choir, multiple art classes, sports, etc., etc.

Fuller seemed like to perfect choice for my gifted child. But I have also been told by parents who formerly had children in Fuller that because Mills University (who only accepts Fuller Students)was nationally recogniced, Fuller was more concerned about its image than its students. I found that to be the case when I tried to arrange a parent-teacher conference. I left two messages requesting a conference on the explorers coordinator voicemail, filled out paperwork requesting a conference, left a message with the appropriate vice-principal in a two week period and never had a return call. It was only after I contacted the principal informing him of the lack of response that I actually received return calls.
