Open Quote As a parent of two children that go to Robert Fulton Elementary School, I have to say that I'm very pleased.
the staff members they are very helpful and really take care of our kids, the teachers are very qualified and what impressed me is that many of them were former students that decided to become highly qualified teachers are returning to give back. Close Quote

Open Quote I have to say as an adult I am absolutely disgusted with this school. The way in which they treat students, specifically first graders is truly sad. I know from kindergarten to 1 st grade of course is a transition which differs slightly due to the increased structure of education and classroom rules however, i believe the teachers at this school are not qualified to handle such a task. Their staff always seems to be bitter and very dismissive in order to quickly get rid of you and continue on to something else. My child has been miserable since week one in this school, he literally wakes up in the mornings and begs not to go to school. He used to love school! Yet now, he feels as if he is being punished every day. Teachers you need to better educate yourselves with regards to children and their needs. They are not robots you can yell at constantly for the slightest things. I am currently seeking approval from the board of education to transfer my child. I am disgusted, disappointed, displeased, appalled, and insulted by such staff and educators. You all destroyed my son's first year experience in elementary school. You have tainted him and have thought it is ok because "he is a child with a different perspective". I hope your school gets better staff members with honestly better attitudes, knowledge, experience, and of course manners. Your first grade teachers act more like 5 year olds with their ridiculous behaviors.
- I WILL NOT REMOVE THIS Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
