Fulton County Schools Reviews

My experience in the Fulton county district was amazing. They have a large variety of clubs and activities for all students to enjoy. Fulton county is very big on the safety of their students which made me feel very comfortable in the environment. Some of the teachers were a little difficult, but for the most part they were a great help. The teachers assist you a lot with the academics and help you with college readiness, especially if you are a senior. Parent involvement wasn't that great unless the students were seniors.The food was good for the most part and the sports team was outstanding! For the most part, I can say my Fulton county experience was a great one.

The Fulton County School system is excellent across all fields. The system has plentiful resources that they allocate wisely to improve the performance of their schools. They offer a variety of challenging courses and work hard to ensure that every student's needs are met. Although students may not be as spirited in terms of sports or pep rallies, they are kind and supportive, and competition is not cutthroat. Students, teachers, parents, and staff work together to help students thrive in school, and prepare for the future. Overall, Fulton County is an incredible school system filled with amazing people.
As a Fulton County student I experienced high academic goals due to the great teachings of teachers who were dedicated with helping students to strive and be more successful. That was a something memorable that will help some students in their future. But sadly, something I experienced was the favoritism in certain sports and clubs. As my school's step team captain we struggled with fundraisers, places to practice, and even performances, because all my school cared about was basketball and football, they didn't really acknowledge soccer, golf, step team, baseball, or even our new sport, lacrosse. My principal would say we are a family, but how could we be if everyone wasn't getting the help they needed. But most importantly at least the academics were very high and helped many students to become successful. I just wish they could have helped the clubs, sports, and etc that were struggling.
