    This school has the best teachers and staff I have ever encountered. My ddaughter has sone learning problems and the support she received with this is amazing. The teachers are all loving caring kind and compassionate. Your concerns are addressed and handled professionally and promptly. The teachers communicate wonderfully and accordingly. Thank you Fulmar Rd for all the love and compassion you have given to my daughter.

    My daughter is a 4th grader at Fulmar Road and I am more than happy with the school. The staff is wonderful. From the principal and office staff the school psychologist to the nurse and women who work in the cafeteria the janitorial staff etc. I feel that everyone really works together for the good of the school. Everyone seems to genuinely care. The last 4 years have been a very positive experience. I could not have chosen a better school than Fulmar Road.

    This school is over-rated for blue ribbon . I found this school to be very disappointing. It lacks in leadership and academic skills for students that are average or above. Taxes are too high for what is offered. Cramped classes in a small school is what you get!
