We need a lot of work here at fulton, academic wise and fundamental. I kept my kids in fulton middle because we have had a couple of great teachers. Some teachers are still there for the kids and not a paycheck but there's a lot to be done. I've attended a couple of the workshop that show the alignment of where fulton need to be and is heading but I can't waste time when it comes to my kids education. My son just graduated fulton middle but he will not attend fulton for high school. I want him to experience more than what fulton has to offer. Yes his commute is convenient for us BUT I would be failing him as a parent if I didn't want more for my child and currently fulton is not it.

The school is run down. Students are just hanging out on the yard during class time and no one is watching them. The principal is no where to be seen and there is no security for this middle/high school. Teachers are grouchy and impatient. The students look board during class time there is obviously no motivation.

This school has one of the worst academics please be cautioned by this school it is very bad !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Posted September 12, 2011

I'm an old alum (80's) and am disheartened that the school is no longer just a Jr. High and how it's deteriorated. My Nephew attended the school for 1 year and got very little out of it. Like anything, it's hit and miss with certain programs and teachers. His mother, who is not academically inclined, asked me to review his education and progress. After looking over his curriculum and work and discussing his education at length with him and some teachers, I compared it to other local schools and schools outside the district (where I now live). I think this school definitely has potential, but it's many years away from achieving it. If your goal is eventually to get your child to a good college after high school, go elsewhere. The teaching and educational environment at this point are very lacking and unorganized and parent involvement is minimal. If you have a choice, I'd go elsewhere in the area - other charters or magnets. Fortunately for my nephew, he can live with me to attend school but I'm convinced that had he stayed, he would be aimless and unmotivated. I'm sad as a proud alum to have to give this negative review but hopefully things will get better soon.

It's a very good and academic school, the teachers here in Fulton and great, so far i've been learning plenty of new things and i think it would be a great school to graduate out of.

Fulton College Preparatory School had made some very significant strides over the past few years. The teachers are dedicated to their professional craft of educating youngsters, and they do their best to challenge and inspire their clients. The counselors listen, care, and have a true open door policy with the students. The Deans are firm, but very fair. The administrators are very committed to educational excellence, and have developed some wonderful program and policies, such as the uniform policy, the cadet programs, and the high school's lofty academic standards.

Fulton is by far the best school that I have attended. It may not be perfect like some parents would want it but they do their best. The teachers, if the students accept, help them with everything; they care about the students and take their own time to help us out. If we need it and ask for it as well. The best part of this school is that there aren't many groups in there. Everyone is mixed with everyone else; and the 'gangs' aren't there. If there are they know where it's time to take things serious.

My children had a fantastic year at Fulton. The campus was safe and the cleanest I have seen. My high school student loved their activities but more could have been done for middle school. Parent involvement is awful. Maybe if more parents were involved and donated to the school students could have more fun activities. It takes money. Overall my kids love their teachers and the school

Okey well i've been going to this school for three years now. and sad to say that it wasn't as fun as i expected my middle school to be. it wasn't only boring but some of the teachers were just way to mean and really unorganized. i'm not sure if i'm going to be staying for high school but if i do hopefully my highschool years would be way better than middleschool.

I'm an 8th grader at Fulton & all I have to say is that I'm glad i'm graduating. I'm not staying there for another year & I'm happy. There are not many electives, activites, & priviledges for middle school students. There aren't even any lockers for the middle school students. I never really liked Fulton. The only thing I actally liked about Fulton were the friends you made there but that's it. I also liked the Dance program. Our Drill team, Cheerleaders, Hip-Hop team, & Dance classes are actually very good. Our dance teacher, Ms. Gray, is absolutely amazing.

This is the 2nd year my children are in this school and i got to say my opinion still stands firm when i say i am very content with it. My kids continue to be in the cadet progam and i continue to support them in it. I am a proud parent of Sargent Herlinda Sandoval and Cadet Peter Calloway. Parents need to be more involved then leaving it all to the staff. The principal has always been there when we had a problem and when we were celebrating a promotion ceromony for the cadets.

Posted September 1, 2007

First of all the principal needs to be on campus more, whenever I call to talk to him they always say he's off campus at a meeting or very busy. There is noting for middle school students, the inportants seems to be high school now.

i am not a parent but used to be a former student at Fulton College Prep. school from my experience i learned a lot from joining the cadet corps in my 6, 7 8, and my first semester in 9th grade. This school to be is the ovarall best in the lausd and in my eyes. Fulton is the future for our future kids and future goals. Cadet Major Irdwin Wan Knight High School (Palmdale)

This school is by far the worst in caring for students. I don't know why they included a high school when they couldn't even handle middle school. I used to be at this school just less than a year ago and the classes aren't that great as they claim. Don't expect any social events,student council, or dances due to lack of sutdent participation. Not enough adult supervision.

My two children attend this school and I am very happy with it. They are also in cadet corps and im also pleased to say that my children are more responsible and take orders a little serious now.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
