Fulmore's magnet provides plenty of challenge and we love the atmosphere of caring. It's the people who work there that make the school such a fantastic middle school experience for any child. Yes, there are some students who get in trouble there--I challenge you to find a middle school where kids don't. But these issues are dealt with swiftly and education goes on. It's a fine middle school!
I have subbed at many schools in Austin, and let me tell you, this is on my 'do not return' list. I can handle students being disrespectful to a certain degree, but this was beyond what I have ever seen. On top of that, the vice principal came to my room and told me to not send anyone to the nurse again. I sent two girls to the nurse during the day for legitimate reasons with passes. I was looking out for the students' bell being. She also blamed me for the class being noisy 4 minutes before the bell rang. I can not come into a class that already has behavior problems and magically make it disappear in the 1.5 hour class I am monitoring. This responsibility falls to the teacher and the school. When a sub steps in to help your school and your teachers, be respectful.
Yikes! I substituted here for an 8th grade science teacher. The students would work on their packets complaining that all they do is packets. I had a group of extremely disrespectful boys that should have been placed into a different class. They should have not been with the others! I will not be going back to this school.
Very disorganized magnet program! Nobody seems to know deadlines for independent projects such as Science Fair, National History Day, etc. Math 6 pre-AP program teaches things my daughter learned in 4th grade. Low standards, even lower expectations, and the Campus Police yell at the kids as if they are criminals. Biggest mistake I ever made sending her there!
Fulmore Magnet has excited and engaged my son, who is now entering 7th grade. It is a slice of the real world, with diverse kids and attitudes and beliefs. My son loves his classes (especially electives such as Visual Media, Law, and Mariachi band) and has had a wonderful social experience as well. Bravo, Fulmore!
There are many great teachers however the leadership needs to be more friendly. Many teachers are leaving next year which is not a good sign. Electives and extracurriculars are stellar.
This school is amazing. It is a great campus, very involved, with a caring staff, a stellar program, and fantastic facilities. The Magnet Program is easily the best in the state: with a Journalism program draped with honors, an unsurpassed band and a choir that excels, I highly recommend this school. The teachers are caring and attentive, and your child will receive an invaluable education at Fulmore.
this school is amazing. I am currently in 8th grade and i am in the magnet program and i have so much fun. The magnet teachers are really cool because they really know how to connect to the students and they know their students' level so they can teach well and actually get the students to understand. The people are soo nice and funny and cool, its just amazing. I have to say, i am kinda excited to leave here but its been a great 3 years and i will always remember..idk. i forgot what i was going to say. sorry:)
In the magnet program, the academics are rigorous, but outside of those classes the hallways are not always comfortable. However, the fine arts classes are amazing, and it is really easy to form a family group in the.
i am a student at this school i have been going there since 6th grade and currently a 7th grader i think yje teachers are very relaxed around the students that they are doing a better job in there teaching in my none magnet classes there are a few bad nuts and it really gets on my nerves but as soon as the teachers notice it witch is usally very quick the send them to bmc witch is behavioral management classes. i personally have never been i have only had detention once for chewing gum...opps....... i am excited tto go to school each morning. i am in advanced choir and that is my overall favoriye elective. the choir directer ms.carrol is the best. I think this is a good idea to send your student there the magnet program is extravegent......
My son wint to this school and it was like a zoo of animals seriously i mean some of the classes where good put the students they where like out of control! i am dissapointed in this school so much
i went to this school right when the children were getting out of class and it was like a zoo of animals. even one student zoomed right passed a teacher almost push her. A couple other students looked like they were all gangsters. Not the type of school i would be at.
My son has thrived at Fulmore this past year, when he previously floundered and hated school. He was on the Honor Roll for the first time in his life & was inducted into the National Junior Honor's Society. Wat to go Fulmore teachers!
A student that formerly went to fulmore, who's brother and parent whom went to fulmore, fulmore is a great school mainly in the magnet program but also in the social society. There isn't any bullying but not only that fulmore students that go there are very nice and welcoming. When I went to fulmore I had very much fun and I did very good in my work. The students tell their parents they're not learning which isn't true they just say that to make their school sound bad I know this because I use to do that and also because every other school I have been to also say that. But fulmore is a very fun place to be I love that school and wish I was still attending. I think you should send your student their!
fulmore middle school is the best and has so many great oppotunities for example the choir sang the national anthem at a spurs game and there is so many activitivities like sports and 21'st century and the principal has great leadership skills,my rating is a 5!!!!!
A grand school for the magnet program, and its excellent fine arts program. But is very unsafe to be at, and there is barley has any parent involvement.
Coming from a student who went to Fulmore, the experience was great. There are alot of after school programs, and very friendly teachers. One thing I dislike about Fulmore had to be that there was/and still is alot of bullying.
I am both a teacher and parent at Fulmore. I was teaching there for 2 years before my son entered 6th grade. He absolutely loves Fulmore for his friends, teachers and activities. He has made nearly all A's since his 1st report card. He plays trombone as well thanks to the marvelous band teachers. He works hard to please all his teachers, asking me if he can stay late or come to school on Saturday! How happy am I? I do love this school, as a teacher and parent.
The magnet program has some interesting course selections, and my child enjoys his magnet and fine arts classes, but the quality of non magnet offerings is hit or miss. The magnet program is haphazardly administrated. The administration is concerned and focused on offering opportunities to all students.
My child is in the law magnet program and he absolutely loves it. The teachers there are great and really care about the students. You can tell that many of them have a true passion for teaching. I wouldn't send my kid to this school if he wasn't in the magnet program, however.
