Small Schools Matter

Welcome to The Fulton School.

Set on a beautiful, 13-acre wooded campus just 10 minutes west of Wildwood, The Fulton School strives to be an extension of the home, cultivating children’s capabilities and challenging them to take academic risks and develop their self confidence.

We are small. There... we said it.

We are a small, independent, coed school for toddlers through 12th grade, offering traditional Montessori through 3rd grade, and a Montessori-based program for 4th through 12th.

With our 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 includes daily PE class and outdoor play, plus weekly Spanish, music and art classes. Upper School offers a strong college-prep, liberal arts curriculum with clubs, electives, daily PE class, faculty advisors and varsity athletics.

We strive at all age levels to get the learning out of the textbook and into the hands of our students. We want them to truly experience education. So we incorporate movement, projects, presentations, hikes, experiments, and hands-on activites at every turn.

Community service, public speaking and philanthropy are integrated at all grade levels. Plus, a farm program involves all students through caring for animals like chickens, goats and bees, maintaining the gardens and orchard and running a business to sell eggs, honey and produce.

The school also offers a comprehensive Learning Support Program for students who need more one-on-one than classroom teachers can provide.
