My daughter's experience has been very awful for these past 5 months. This schools staff shows parents a facade at their very first day, and is a living hell for students. Most of Fulmers teachers are very uncaring, and seem to start things up with students. All of their punishments are a slap on the wrist, and oh yeah, have I mentioned that if students forget their ID's they force your child to eat last! The schools students are also notorious for bullying and always talking about SEX! I also left out the fact that the school barley tries to mention black history in Febuary, Which makes me have a very negative outlook on the district. The only thing good I have to say about this school is that they have a very good curriculum, which the teachers don't even enforce very well.
