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.

Fulton kids consistently score at the top of standardized testing - teachers are warm and caring.

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.

This school is fantastic! I came in 6th grade and everyone was SO nice. The past reviews have said that P.E. was hard, its really not! They make us run to make us stronger. The teachers are fonominal and the lunches rock! :)

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 is a great school, students get along well with other students and the teachers are well qualified and have great personalities. I highly reccomend this school for anyone who is going into middle school.
