    #1 in Excellence and Quality Child Safety . I love the way the teachers embrace the new student with concern for the level of education they require for standardized testing. Parents are involved with all aspects of learning here and teachers embrace the unity.

    I am a grandmother of a third grade student going to the fourth grade this year. I love and respect the teachers and the Principal of this school. They are very concerned about there students. My grandson was really starting to act up in the last quarter of school the teacher got in touch my daughter and the Principal had a long talk with my grandson to let him know that he was really slipping and has not achieved his grade level as expected knowing the work he does. At the end of the school year he had all his work in and his journal was complete. Only because these teachers and the principal care for these children and want them to be able to read and understand what they are reading and the excel in all there achievements.

    My twins love this school. My once shy and introverted daughter is know crawling out of her shell and alot of the credit is due to the teachers and principal of Fulton. My wild and sometimes attention deficient son is kept in check to ensure that he does not fall behind. I would not remove my children from this school.
