Read what parents are saying about Fuller Elementary School
My son is in 2nd grade, and I have been incredibly pleased with the school thus far. We live in Gilbert, his father lives in Tempe, and despite the reputation of the great schools in Gilbert, we choose to take him here because of how outstanding Fuller is. The staff is effective and understanding of working with children of all personality types. Academics is a focus and test scores demonstrate how well Fuller exceeds in this area compared to other nearby schools and state wide. The Pace program offers great programming for kids who are excelling academically and want further challenges. School clubs like coding allow kids to grow in areas that are becoming more in demand in the future work field. Kindness, respect, anti-bullying is a focus of the culture at Fuller. All in all, I am very happy with our experience so far at Fuller, and highly recommend it to anyone considering enrolling their child there, in or our of the school boundaries.

I just wanted to give a shout out to Mrs. McDermott. She has been a phenomenal teacher this year. There is just so much to say I don't know where to start.I can tell that she loves being a teacher and not only cares for her students but the parents as well. She has taken the time to know our first names instead of being addressed as Mom or Dad which is huge in a parent's eyes She speaks to her students with respect, helps them think about their actions and reactions vs just scolding/yelling as some may do, and gives them a sense of responsibility which helps mold them for the future. I love her teaching style in knowing that not every student learns the same and she gives the students multiple ways to approach a problem and allows them to solve it in the way that works best for them. Also her project based learning method is great in preparing students for today's world given all of the collaboration that happens within companies and learning how to recognize that people may not have the same opinion on how to do things and compromise is needed to come up with a solution.Overall I can tell my child loves being in Mrs. McDermott's class by always wanting to be at school, coming home excited to talk about his school day, and works very hard to have lunch with Mrs. McDermott by clipping up. We were very lucky to get Mrs. McDermott as a teacher and thought that somebody should know how appreciated he is and how missed she will be as our 1st grade teacher.

Amazing! We are out of boundaries and travel some in the morning to go to this school vs or neighborhood school.

Our children began at Fuller after school had already begun in 2013. They were both made to feel so welcome and the principal and office staff took time to explain all the pertinent information to my husband and I. The teachers went above and beyond to help acclimate them to their new surroundings and challenge them to keep them interested and excelling. Although they did study for the tests, I feel that they taught as holistically as possible and put forth a well-rounded curriculum. This is their second year at Fuller and the children were so excited to return. The PTA is active and I hope to see more parent involvement this year!

I love Fuller! My daughter is now in 1st grade and her teachers so far have been wonderful with gentle guidance, encouragement all while fostering her leadership qualities. The principal is wonderful and engaging. The music teachers are fabulous (All the staff is great) The layout of the school I feel promotes positive relationships between the grade levels vs. separation. The PTO is very strong here and though I cannot commit due to a demanding job, I appreciate all they do and help when I can. We considered a charter but cannot be happier we chose Fuller!
