Fulton City Schools ... Expanding Minds and Opportunities....Preparing Students for their Future

Students learning today for the oppportunities and challenges of tomorrow!

The Fulton School District and our staff are committed to providing all students with the knowledge and skills to be prepared for the next phase of their lives in college or their career upon completion of high school.

Student proficiency in literacy, mathematics, the sciences, technologies, business and the humanities provides them with the foundation to be successful students now and valued employees and contributing citizens later in life.

Academic performance, however, is not the sole measure of success.  Extra curricular activities and athletics play a major role in giving our students the well rounded background they need to be prepared to succeed in life!

The "City" District

The Fulton City School District serves students of the city proper as well as those from the surrounding towns of Granby, Volney, Minetto, Oswego, Palermo and Scriba.

Parents' Bill of Rights for Data Privacy and Security

Quality From Preschool Through High School

Preschool programs and full-day kindergarten sessions introduce our youngest students to everything from broad social interaction to the basic academic and analytical skills that will form the foundation for their learning years.

A quality education is built upon the District's Standards of Excellence. From this we provide a comprehensive curriculum with programs that focus on preparing our students for a wide range of potential career paths. Some of the highlights include:

Expectations for Citizenship

 

The District and each of our schools has a positive and proactive culture, focusing on student and staff expectations of being: Respectful, Responsible and Safe! 

 

Through teaching these expectations and providing guidance for our students, they learn throughout their school career what it means to be a responsible school citizen and how to be an effective decision maker and problem solver!
