Kara Douglass
Head of School 

Welcome to The Fulton School.


Whether you're a prospective parent, teacher, current parent, or a casual browser, we hope you find a bit of the Fulton School spirit here.  We have a pretty special group of people working pretty hard to make the world a more beautiful place in our small ways.  Our students leave us eventually and take with them some of this spirit, hopefully making the world more beautiful along their ways.


We believe that children learn best by touching, hearing, tasting, and experiencing life.  At the Fulton School, everything the student experiences is purposeful, from the work the preschool teachers set on the shelves to the sixth graders running the school store to community service planning by the upper school students. 

Our students are absorbing and growing and learning every minute of the day.  Our location, nestled in the hills southwest of St. Louis, is itself an opportunity to learn, the Little Tavern Creek becomes a classroom, the Engelmann Woods become a science lab, and the nearby hills make for excellent sledding during snowy P. E. Units.

 

We also believe that children should LOVE school. That may sound impossible, but our students do love school, they love learning, and they love sharing what they've learned. We encourage this love through relevant, hands-on, and student-centered teaching.

Our school is devoted to fostering confidence, initiative, philanthropy, and life-long learning in each student. While every school teaches students to read, write, recite and compute, Fulton School students have an attitude and approach to life which sets them apart. Ultimately such skills are much more likely to serve them with adult success and fulfillment than purely academic accomplishments can offer.
