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.
It's a good school. My daughter has good grades and loves the band. They have won some competetitions and compete with the big dogs.
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 think Fulton is a neat school with a new idea. There results seem good too. We're so glad to have our student going there.
Students were the top priority. Staff was genuinely caring and expected greatness from us.
Both of my sons graduated from Fulton. Fulton has dedicated teachers and a great sense of community.
Both my children went to Fulton, And my grandson will be there in 3 years. I wouldn't have sent them anywhere else.
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 graduated in 98 and always attend alumni events ,my sisters go there and anywhere between a gpa average of 3.75 & 4.0 .They exceed in grades and sports, one plays basketball, volleyball,and golf.The other sister cheers, plays basketball, volleyball, and golf.They are equally smart as they are athletic.One has even been offered scholarships from well known schools including Oxford.I would be very proud to say I have sisters of this nature yet I personally will not allow my children to go there they already displine problems and Fulton does not focus on problemed children.But I will always bleed maroon.
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.
