I went to this school from second to 5th grade. This was a great elementary then. The teachers were great, the principle at the time (Mrs Branch) was wonderful. The food wasn't all that great but overall a very great school. I learned so much and liked forward to school everyday. I don't how much the school has changed since then but if the the rules and regulations, the teachers who were able to build relationships are still there id say it's a great school

My son is in second grade and began attending Robert Fulton in the beginning of this school year. On his first day of school he was punch in the eye. Second day, he was stabbed by another student with a pencil and third day he was pushed to the ground during gym and hit in the face with a ball. His teacher also begged me to take him out and put him in another school. Since then I've been trying to get him put in a better school with a safer environment. It is now March and he had been sent home with over 25 notes from the nurse for "accidents" happening to him during class time. I would not recommend this school to no one.

The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles.
