The school is excellent in terms of the quality of an education and atmosphere it provides. Like all schools, there are a few terrible teachers, but they are outnumbered by the rest of the staff. The office staff has an odd sense of humor which takes getting used to, but they're not trying to be rude. When I went here, I loved it and it's a decision I'll never regret.

Bad staff and services. I am disappointed at the quality of the staff this school. It is absolutely one of the worst staffs I've worked with. They are not genuinely supportive of my child, and it seems like they don't want my kids to go to school there. But at the end, I have no choice because I am in the Fulton zone. Hopefully the teachers are as good as they sound.

A great school I came here in 7th grade and everyone was so nice. The teachers are kind and are willing to take time out of there day to help the students.

Fulton is an okay school. Almost all of the kids are nice. There are some things that could be done better. All of the students are LOADED with homework! Probably the least amount of homework I've ever had took an hour. You barely get any time to hang out with friends during weekdays. A couple of the teachers play favorites but not all. P.E. is really hard! We run so much but it doesnt really help us. We aren't going to get six packs! Our dances are pretty bad too. We are not even allowed to dance! Some of my friends and I were dancing, appropriately too, and the Vice Principal told us that the only thing we can do is jump up and down. It took the fun out of it. It's really hard being a GATE student too. Most of the teachers *expect* you to be really smart.

Fulton is a great school with great electives and stuff but the problem is that in pe, we over run and play boring sports. Plus, the lunch lady is mean. But the good thing is that all of the teachers are all nice and they always try to help you with all your schoolwork and troubles. The principles are very interactive with the kids and are always hilarious. i recommend this school.

A while ago I read the reviews here and thought the school looked great. I came in at 7th grade and I found out that this school is not as good as it seems. For one thing, everyone hated me because I was a new kid. Almost every single kid in the school tells on other kids for everything, no matter how small. The kids are always trying to get eachother into trouble and they try to make the other students get bad grades by stealing their homework. The teachers are all right, but the P.E. is terrible. You do laps 90% of the time and sports 10% of the time. It's painful.

Fulton Middle School is such a great school! I love all the electives and how all the teachers try so hard to make school fun! The P.E. at Fulton is so great! It's really good for us because we can stay in shape but we still have time in P.E. to play fun sports! I think it's absolutly wonderful how kids are allowed to work with the special education kids as an elective. That school is so great and I highly recomend it for kids going into middle school.

I love this school! This is my last year here at fulton, and it is by far my favorite school I have been to! My teachers were exellent... Anyways, I am sad to leave this school, fulton has taught me well, and I loved the fact that we have a special ed program! It allows me to interacte with them, and I really enjoyed that. I am very pleased with the outcome that I had and highly recommend fulton middle school to all.

My 2 sons recently transferred into Fulton MS fall '05, from a private school. As a parent, I was concerned about the obvious transition during this pre-adolescent period of their lives. The administrative staff, from the Principal to the Office Manager to the individual instructors ~~ all have made the transition a smooth one. Academically, the boys had to 'quickly learn' some material that was foreign to them. But again, the administration worked well with them and they are both on the Honor Roll and will be testing for GATE program this month. I am very pleased with the outcome and highly recommend Fulton Middle School.

The music teachers here at Fulton are involved in music and if your son or daughter chooses they can be in band or orchestra. There is a fee because of budget constraints, but I think it's worth it!

Fulton is a very good school. The principal is very involved with the kids. The school schelules interesting things for the kids, like bringing high powered telescopes to the school one evening and inviting the kids and their parents to come and see the stars. They have a great music program and the kids are introduced to an array of electives, such as cooking, woodshop, golf, spanish, keyboarding, and more. Fulton does separate the sixth graders from the seventh and eighth, which I found to be nice. The only bad point I found is that some teachers seem to care more than others, but I think you find that in all schools. I would rate this as a great school.

I am extremely happy with the parent teacher communication at this school - it helps keep our children in line with good grades and good behavior. I also LOVE the merit points to particiapte in activites - they have to EARN the right - just like at home - and I think that teaches our children good values and something that will stick with them for years to come.
