About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Fulton Science Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Fulton Science Academy had 34 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Georgia average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Fulton Science Academy Reviews
I have two sons that have been through Fulton Science Academy and it has been a great experience. Imagine Middle Schoolers actually liking school!? They got a top notch education and learned a lot about character. I felt the teachers really gave a lot of their time, over and above what other schools do. There is a reason the waiting lists are so long!
They teach Science but that is all. They use the math program that Fulton County tried and discarded. It works with 12-15 students but with the growth of the school it is no longer effective. They have no decent Spanish department and the Language Arts program offers very little. If your child has an IEP or a 504 you will battle with this school every day. The teachers do not understand that this is a federal mandate and not just a suggestion. They seem to have lost their original direction. If your kid makes all A's and is the perfect student then they will be fine.
