Raising kids: It takes a village


Growing up is hard. So the mission of The Fulton School isn’t just to teach math, reading and science – they believe school needs to be so much more. They strive to create a village of faculty, staff, students and parents to help raise children well.

Set on a beautiful, 13-acre wooded campus just 10 minutes west of Wildwood, The Fulton School is a small, independent, coed school for toddlers through 12th-graders, offering traditional Montessori through third grade, and a Montessori-based program for fourth through 12th grades. With its small, intimate environment and 8-to-1 student-teacher ratio, there are no ceilings to hinder development and no hiding places for students to resist growth. The whole child can develop into the adult he or she is meant to be.

Lower School [preschool-sixth grade] includes daily PE class and outdoor play, plus weekly Spanish, music and art classes. Upper School [seventh grade-12th grade] offers a strong college-prep, liberal arts curriculum with clubs, electives, daily PE class, faculty advisers, extensive travel opportunities and varsity athletics. Philanthropy, public speaking and entrepreneurial opportunities are integrated at all grade levels.

In addition, a farm program involves all students in 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.

The school also offers a comprehensive Learning Support Program for students who need more one-on-one coaching.

Call The Fulton School today to set up a stress-free, no-pressure tour to get to know their “village.”
