Well, I graduated in 1958. It was a GREAT school and many of our Classmates still get together for meals and fellowship. I learned to be respectful of others and to be a good helper of other people. 22 years in the military, 32 years at Lockheed Aircraft, 20 years Civil Air Patrol and running our Senior Center for the last 10 years. As a C.A.P. Commander, many great kids have come from our work. One of them flying 2 Space shuttles. Others Pilots, EMT's etc. We had many successful people in our class.

This school is one of the worst high schools academically in the state of Tennessee. Being a Title 1 high priority school it qualifies for students to opt out and to be transported to a school that meets federal guidelines as set by the "Federal No Child Left Behind Act" I would suggest parents of high school students zoned to this school exercise this option. This school will not help your child prepare for college.

I have two children that goes to fulton ,right now. there has been talk about year round at fulton and a-e. i have heard alot against it.... and some thats for it. i think it will help the kids education wise, but the thing thats going to hard on familys with younger kids, that get watched by their older siblings, while parents are at work. i am really not for it or against it, iam for whats best for the kids.

I am an involved parent, and would love to see more parents involved. There are alot of things that could be more positive if everyone would take an initiative with our children. They didn't ask to be brought into this world we had them it is our responsibility to stay on top of matters to be sure we are doing everything possible to help them succeed, it is not just the teachers responsibility.

Our child is currently a sophomore there. When we heard about the changes that were coming two years ago we were overwhelmed and worried. We didn't need to be. It's such a practical outlook and plan for education I'm surprised more schools aren't doing the same thing. Fulton has had a dramatic turnaround and continues to improve. We love it!

I believe Fulton is one of the worst schools in our system. The lack of leadership is so obvious and sad for the students. The leaders seem to have their own agenda to make a name for themselves. The students suffer because of the power and ego struggles within. Concerned parent

This is probably the worst school in knox county, trust me i would know. I have been going there for 4 years now. The teachers do not care if you pass or fail. All the little thugs there get away with everything. Its so bad that over the summer everyone was sent a letter saying they were welcome to move schools, hah! it's a crappy school and i would never send my kids there!

I graduated from Fulton in 2007. The teachers, Project GRAD people, and principals were nothing but nice to me. I graduated with a 3.8 GPA and a full ride scholarship to the University of Tennessee. If it wasn't for people like Ms. Tereka Holloway, Mrs. Price, Mrs. Watson, Mrs. West, and head principal Mrs. Hatcher I would not be the successful person I am today. They gave me the guidance to meet my goals and aim higher than I ever thought I could. Fulton is so involved with the community and sports. The football and basketball teams are awesome. The players are legends and many will play professional ball one day. I love Fulton and owe them my future because that's what they gave to me. Wow what a gift!! Thanks and go Falcons!!

I have three daughters that attend Fulton High School and I have not been impressed with anything the school has to offer or should I say what it does not offer. I especially feel that the counselors and teachers need to step up and get with the program of what they are truly hired to do. I do not recommend this school to any parent thinking about sending their child there.

This is a wonderful school that is well mixed racialy and that has made a great impact on my family's lives. They have one of the best football programs in the state of Tennssee and have be sucessfull in that through good morals. The education is amazing and I would never send my child anywhere else. I am firm beleiver that Fulton High School is one of the best schools in Knoxville, if not in the state of Tennessee.

I graduate from Fulton in 2004 and I was voted Most School Spirit! I will honesty say the things that I learned at Fulton academically and personally have made me a better person. The staff at Fulton not only prepare students for their future academic, but they also prepares them for what they might meet in their personal life. For me the teachers and including the janitors where also willing to lend a helping hand. I ll never forget one time I was crying and one of the janitors pulled me aside and gave me words of encouragement.To me that is what Fulton High School stands for, a school always willing to go the extra mile. Now I am a student at Tusculum College majoring in Special Education, and if it was not for the encouragement I recieved from the staff at Fulton where would I be!Go Falcons! Class of 2004

I am a parent and my daughter will be gradating from Fulton this year. She loves the school and would not want to go anywhere else. The teachers are very helpful and the office and principal staff are super people. They have the best academic classes I have seen in schools. I would tell everyone to send their kids to Fulton. I also have another one attending Fulton in Augest, and she is very excited about it and so am I. Go Fulton! Mrs. Mary Denny

I am currentally a Senior at Fulton High School.2006 It isnt the best school but it isnt the worst school. The teachers are their to help you and they work with you. As long as your child goes by the rules then they will do fine. Fulton isnt all about sports. We support or sports and show our Falcon Spirt. Doesnt all schools do that? So really you have nothing to worry about when sending your kids to Fulton High School

They didn't offer the german class which he had taken in middle school,nor did they offer the exstensive art classes that he needed to further his career as an adult. Knox county does have a dress code however when I pick my child up I do not see this being followed. students are not alllowed to smoke on school property but they do.

I do not recomend this school to anyone there are major racial issues in this school. Also if you are not into sports then you don't matter. learning has no place at all in this school. My son attends this school and feels that nobody is concerned with teaching or discipline. I feel this school needs a major check-up.

My husband graduated from Fulton in 2000. It was a great school as far as the athletic departments; however it didn't do much for him academically. He struggled through classes but (with the exception of two inspirational teachers) did not get the guidance he needed to reach his full potential. His guidance counselor did not show very much interest in him and quickly and dismissively told him he should take a technical path rather than a college bound path. At the time he didn't fully understand what that meant and it was not explained. After high school he had a tough time getting accepted to universities, due in part because he had not taken the proper classes in high school. I think a well rounded student with a strong family support system would do well at Fulton, but if your child may need extra help -forget it.

This is my sons second year at Fulton. He really enjoys going to school there and I think it was a very good move for him because I wanted him to be in a shcool that had more diversity. The staff works hard. The only thing I feel that needs improvement is Guidance/Teacher/Parent notification. Guidance and Teachers notifying parents when students are having trouble in their class. I say this because speaking from expierence, both areas wait until the grading period is over before notifying the parents that a student is having trouble in a class and by then it's too late to get help for the student. Teachers, please, take up some of the responsibility on the front end and notify parents at the first sign of trouble. You know when a student is having problems. Let's face it, Kids will not tell parents they're having problems with schoolwork.

I am a graduate from 1988 and I have a son who goes there now he just made the baseball team and I think it is a great place for kids to be. The administration there is a top notch group and the entire faculty are great people. I am proud to still say we are Falcons!

I graduated from Fulton in 1973, I just thought it was bad then. My daughter graduated in 2003. She always made the honor roll, had perfect attendance, was a member of the Beta club etc. Her academic acheivment was due only to the fact that she was a determined teenager. The staff and teachers are more interested in the way kids dress and look in general. Not to say that is what the teachers are interested in, however, that is what the principals and school board are more interested in. If I could have afforded to send her to a private school, I would have.

All three of my children graduated from Fulton. My youngest got mono at the end of his senior year and they were extremely helpful in seeing that he got what he needed to complete his courses. He also played basketball and I can not say enough about the excellent coaching of Jody Wright. He helped my son through some hard times and with the help of him and other wonderful teachers at Fulton Mrs. Price for one my son turned his life around.

Fulton is a great school to send your children to, I graduated from Fulton and the teachers there helped me to plan a future for myself and helped me decide a college to attend. So in my opinion, Fulton is a very good school for your children to attend.
