Fulton County Schools Reviews

My experience with Fulton Schools thus far has been very enjoyable due to the kindness of the teachers and staff at all of the schools I have attended in the county. Although I have been in Fulton County since I have started school and have loved it, I will say the counseling department needs small improvements with organization and efficiency. My experience overall has been very good and memorable in the best way!

It was great! The facility and staff was always there to help me learn and strive to do my best. I always felt I was in a safe and secure environment. The teachers always went out of their way to make sure students had everything they needed. The clubs and student participation was great also. Everyone attended sporting events and band concerts. The facilities were also clean and well stocked with necessities. All in all i have throughly enjoyed my time at a Fulton County School.
I attended a Fulton county middle school and i am currently attending Fulton county high school. As a very active and social person, I really enjoyed all of the programs and extracurricular activities that Fulton county has to offer. I feel as though they offer a diverse and inviting environment for every student to find their place. I've also had the pleasure of being in classrooms with teachers that were truly passionate about their jobs and the children. Though the teacher were amazing, i feel like they too limited within the standard of the state and what they could teach us. I feel as though the county could improve the freedom they give to teachers and students regarding what materials they learn, and also do a better job of going on more out of class experiences and field trips.
