    This has been a wonderful school for all three of our boys one of whom has graduated and entered middle school. All three of our sons are very very different in terms of personality and natural strengths. The ability of the teachers to recognize differences and work with each child is incredible. The elective program allows the students to flourish in their own gifts or talents and also allows for an academic breadth that is hard to match. While the school is geared to give appropriate challenges to each student based on his or her own development it is not a stressful or high-pressure environment. We could not have found a better match for us.

    My children have been attending Fuller from K -2 and K- 5th. I have been able to be a PTA member and active in the school through PTA as well as in the classroom as requested by the teachers. I appreciate the open communication from the teachers. The teachers encourage parent involvement. I am loving the vast variety of electives the children can choose from. Principal Fenner is working hard with the board to keep Fuller students safe and have an active learning enviroment. The teachers are well quallified to educate the children to their full potential. Each student gets 1 1 attention and each child is challenged. So glad my children had this opportunity to attend this school.

    Fuller attends and nurtures the whole child and every child. It is a truly equitable school where each child is visible and valued. I love Fuller and am blessed to have my child part of its community.

    Absolute phenomenal school. The academic program here is outstanding. As a teacher who worked there and a parent of a child who went there I can't complain. The leadership of the administration is very present and well represented. I never had a bad thing to say about anything or anyone while working there and following my child's education. Kudos to Fuller!
