I love going to Fultondale High School. It might not be the biggest school or have the nicest things but, the memories and friendships I have created here have made it great! I hope in the future that we are able to get a new school and have better opportunities for the classes after me!

The school really focuses on the students education, every class I take at this school it's a challenge but you are never alone. They're always willing to help at Fultondale! Great energy from the teachers, uplifting teachers, and open minded students with many choices and advanced mindsets.
I’ve changed schools a good bit of times but Fultondale is by far the best school I’ve ever attended. It has a great environment thats filled with nice and caring people with the exception of maybe 2 or 3. The principals are the sweetest kindest people in the world. They really make you feel welcomed and like your’re apart of a family by treating you with respect like a human being should be treated. Our football program has really risen over the years and plays a big role in the love that’s in the air at Fultondale. Fultondale could use a good bit of work such as air conditioning in the gym ,painting the walls and offering classes that other schools offer so that we don’t have to go where we are unwanted (Gardendale). Although it has its issues I wouldn’t trade Fultondale High School for the world.
