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.

As a past student of the Fulton County Schools system I am very grateful for the people I have met, especially the teachers! As an upcoming freshman at SCAD I am so happy to say that I have been helped to the most of my needs during my time in high school, from advisers and teachers who actually want to see me strive and I'm very thankful for that.
I am receiving fantastic quality education, however there's always room for improvement, including insuring the safety of our students. As a graduating senior, I feel as though I've been consistently challenged for all four years of high school academically. I have participated in multiple extracurriculars that are mostly well supported. Regarding school safety, I feel as though Fulton County can greatly improve on making their schools safer. Fulton should make schools consistent, like putting white call buttons in all the schools rather than some.
