Fulton high school is an exceptional school that challenges students through classes and supports them to overcome diverse obstacles. I have notably grown since my sophomore year, when I became member of Fulton Family. Teacher’s are helpful mentors that students look for. Nevertheless, Fulton high school should have more clubs or associations where students could develop different skills or gain experience for the out-world such as communication, leadership, professionalism, integration.

Fulton High School is a place like no other. The administration, teachers, and staff genuinely care about the students, their success, the community and making a difference. There is 0 tolerance when it comes to poor behavior and bad attitudes, a sense of pride and family, emphasis on participation in everything from clubs to sports - and band to community service. I felt very blessed to have opportunities as a peer tutor, cheerleader and working with graduation coaches and Project Graduation mentors. I feel like the people at Fulton High School work to prepare students for college, the workforce, and life outside of the school walls. There is a lot of passion in the Fulton staff and alumni - which I truly value. I am proud to be a #FFL (Falcon for Life).
Fulton is a great school, it offers three career based areas in the school after becoming a junior such as health science, skilled professions (cosmetology, heating & air work), and communications. All areas prepare you for the workforce and have clubs you can join to comepete and win money or scholarships such as HOSA in health science. Fulton could improve on the teachers behavior and the room of the school, it’s pretty small for the amount of kids that Fulton Carries.
