Located just 10 minutes west of Wildwood, The Fulton School is a small, co-ed, independent, Montessori-based school for students 18 months old through 12th grade. Their roots in Montessori emphasize independence to build students’ confidence, concentration to lay the building blocks for academic growth, individualized learning so children are never overwhelmed or bored, and character to nurture the whole child.
The small, home-like environment offers an atmosphere where students can safely face the inevitable challenges, joys, and struggles of growing up, while experiencing the benefits of small class sizes and relevant curriculum. Students have opportunities to pursue classes and projects in music, art, STEM, volunteerism, foreign language, entrepreneurship, farming, travel, and athletics.
In the Lower School, which enrolls students through 6th grade, the multi-age classrooms are designed to allow and encourage children to explore hands-on, meaningful works that both reach the children at their current stage while also encouraging them to challenge themselves with more complex ideas both inside and outside the classroom.
Fulton’s Upper School, which is comprised of students in 7th to 12th grade, offers a strong college-prep, liberal arts-based curriculum. Teaching students to think critically, write and speak effectively, collaborate, exercise initiative and display good character are Fulton’s highest priorities. Preparing students for life – for studying and working on their own – are the end goals.
Fulton School’s culture of mutual respect, freedom balanced with responsibility, and plenty of choices creates a unique atmosphere that adolescents love.
