Growing up in Fulton County I experienced a numerous amount of different social and environmental studies. As far as, diversity in the schools, hands on activities given the outstanding clubs, and the everyday college resources that us students receive. There are great teachers to have connections, and talks when going through a tough time. Given that I attend one of the performing arts schools in Fulton county, I truly believe the spread of diversity in my school is well known through our school dances and musical performances. We all share a school culture that is well understood through every student and administration team. However, one thing I believe could be fixed is the school facility itself! The restrooms aren't filled with tissue, soap or paper towels. While, there's plenty of roaches going around during school hours.

Fulton County Schools are great. I attend Westlake High School. The staff is amazing, as well as the food. The staff makes sure that everyone is safe and having fun in a learning environment. They provide great opportunities for students. Mostly through clubs, sports, internships and community involvement. The facilities such as the restrooms could be better, but that mostly falls on the students. The students at my school are very unique. We all come from different ethnic and situational backgrounds. Yet we find common ground on calling Westlake our home!
I’ve gone to school with Fulton county since elementary school. I think Fulton county is an excellent school system that cares about the well-being of their students, teachers, and administration. Highly recommend any school in Fulton county!
