Fulmore is a good school but there are definitely some areas that require immediate improvement. The magnet program is ok. It lacks a good foundation and leadership. The comprehensive program suffers from the teachers lack of knowledge in dealing with lower SES students. To me fulmore is 1 step away from becoming either a wonderful institute for learning or completely falling apart. This all hinges on the main campus leadership(the principal). The jury is still out as to whether he will be committed to the values that brought him here or if he is just a politician aiming for a higher position.

Fulmore is a good school getting better. With greater parent involvement and participation, strong campus leadership, and dedicated staff, student performance is improving. The unique course offerings of the Magnet Program, the quality of the instructors, and the formation of the Magnet Governence Committee make Fulmore a fine example of what other schools across the district and state can accomplish for their students. Any issues regarding student conduct and campus safety are constantly being addressed by faculty, administration, and parent and student involvement. Issues and concerns on campus? Certainly. What school doesn't have them. What makes a good school even beter is how we as a community choose to respond to those concerns. It is quite easy and simple to cast stones, it is much more dificult to use them to build. Fulmore is on the way up because people care. Alberto C. Gonzalez

My son has gone to Fulmore's magnet school for two years. Overall, I am pleased with the academic program and believe it to be equal to what he would have received in public school honors classes. About half of the teachers he has had are outstanding; about half are good; only two have been poor. There has been a successful effort to offer interesting electives. I only know one foreign language teacher (French) and she is wonderful - dedicated and encouraging to students. More needs to be done to help the kids deal with racism. Our experience has been that the minority students at Fulmore are occasionally the victims of rascist remarks . It may be the other way around as well - I don't know. But, you probably encounter this on many campuses that have diverse populations.

Fulmore is an outstanding school that includes a Humanities and Law Magnet. If your young person finds an interest in the arts, philosophy, law or international studies, this is the place to be. The teachers are masters at curriculum writing and the programs are student centered. FMS is also home to outstanding athletics, and teams consistantly advance to zone, area and district championships. My children attends Fulmore because I believe that it provides a well rounded education with many more opportunities than any other middle school in AISD.

My oldest child is currently attending Fulmore and my middle child will join him this coming fall. My wife and I have nothing to say, but positive things about Fulmore. We have found the teachers and counselors to be extremely and more than willing to help my oldest succeed. My son has ADD, and with the help of the teaching staff, has been successful at Fulmore for the last two years. In fact, he is even in the National Junior Honor Society. The homework and projects that he has been assigned are extremely challenging and have helped him gain confidence in his abilities to accomplish his tasks. So, even though, we may ask what he learned and his response may be 'Nothing', judging by his homework assignments we review every day, he's learning a great deal.

The last 2 years Fulmore was a really great school & I invisioned it to really go far, but this year, the school is lacking in leadership (magnet director left), teacher support and admisitration support. The school is really behind in science and social studies. It is a magnet in name only. If I had another choice Kealing would be the magnet. Foreign language is a joke. Ask any student (current) what they have learned, they will say 'nothing'. A lot of teachers are only there to collect a pay check. However, the counselors are great.

Outstanding school, all around. The magnet program is top notch, the parents highly involved, and the teachers sharp and passionate. I can't imagine a better program from my middle schooler.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
