Fulton County Schools Reviews

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!

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!
I've been in Fulton County for almost ten years. Overtime I saw my schools grew, teachers who care for their students like relatives, and Fulton actually becoming a city-adding more revenue to the Atlanta suburban area.
I'm a sophomore at Langston Hughes High School, and so far I like where my school stands right now. Also looking back on the previous schools I've attended, they also expanded and improved. Questions, suggestions, and innovations consistently run through the Fulton school system because I see Fulton County Schools being different when I'm no longer in grade school.
