School Notes

  • The Fulton School strives to be an extension of the home, cultivating children`s capabilities and challenging them to take academic risks and develop self-confidence.
  • Set on a beautiful, 13-acre wooded campus just 10 minutes west of Wildwood, TFS is a small, Montessori-based, toddler through 12th grade school. There are no ceilings to hinder development and no hiding places for students to resist growth.  The teaching styles are refreshing, and the students are engaged, accepted, and passionate about learning. Whether it`s a 2nd grader programming Lego robotics with an iPad, an 8th grader sketching out plans for a greenhouse, or an 11th grader cataloguing wildflowers on campus, TFS students are as unique as their passions. And the teachers are experts at bringing those passions to life in the classroom. 
  • Lower School includes daily PE class and outdoor play, plus weekly Spanish, music and art classes.
  • Upper School offers a strong college-prep, liberal arts curriculum with clubs, electives, daily PE class, faculty advisors, extensive travel opportunities, and varsity athletics.
  • Philanthropy, public speaking and entrepreneurial opportunities are integrated at all grade levels. Plus, a farm program involves all students through caring for animals like chickens, goats and bees, maintaining the gardens and orchard, running a business to sell eggs, honey and produce, and providing a laboratory for advanced science application.

This school is so focused on the individual student. They work so hard to celebrate each child's strengths and to help them become the best version of themselves. With hands-on learning they focus on great academics but also wonderful life skills and all around development. My daughter loves her school.

I have 3 children currently attending the Fulton School at St. Albans in grades 1-3. We could not be happier. Teachers are dedicated, highly qualified and compassionate. My children are anxious to attend school everyday. Even when they are sick, I repeatedly get asked, "When can I go to school?" Now that's a sign of a good school. :-) There is also a strong sense of community. Families are involved and know one another. In addition to the wonderful education and extra-curricular programs for students, there are many activities for parents such as: coffee/book chats, social events, parenting classes, volunteer work and more. The principal is very warm and welcoming and always willing to address any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend the Fulton School at St. Albans.

I have three children with three different learning styles, and the needs of each are being met at The Fulton School. Not teaching to the test, allows the teachers a greater freedom and the students a greater independence to explore at a greater depth and breadth than would otherwise be possible. The diversity of learning and the freedom to learn for the sake of knowledge makes for happy, healthy kids. TFS is how school should be.

I have two children in the upper school at TFS. My kids LOVE to go to school. The teachers and support staff are like their second family. High quality academic education is prepared and presented by highly educated teachers whose love for teaching is evident in everything they do. The Montessori format allows both of my children to learn each subject using their own personal strengths rather than being forced into a mold. The individual attention, due to the small class size, allows for a personal education that is second to none.

I have a son who attends the upper school and have been pleasantly surprised at the difference between The Fulton School and public schools. Each child is treated individually by a wonderful group of teachers and school leaders. The quality of the athletic program in the upper school has been amazing for a small school and every student can play!

The Fulton School of St. Albans is truly a place where I see kids love to learn. The entire community is excited and enthusiastic about learning, sharing and caring. Mu husband and I feel so fortunate to have our 2 daughters in the TFS. Our youngest daughter started at TFS in pre-school and now is in kindergarten. Immediately, we saw the little individual in her come alive and have observed her continue to grow every year. Our 3rd grade daughter transferred to TFS this year and SHE is amazed at how much fun learning can be!
