FSA is a Big Family Through Home Visits

Experience and research from all over the United States shows that the interaction with the student’s family at their home is a very effective way to help student’s academic and behavioral progress.

Here is a recent feedback:

Thank You for a Lovely Home Visit
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for spending your Sunday afternoon with us and visiting my daughter here at our home. It meant so much to her, and to our entire family, to have you visit. As we said during our time together, we have utmost appreciation and respect for all that you do for our children. My daughter's transition into the new school has been wonderful, and we can't thank you enough for making such a positive impact on her life, and ours as well.
How can you schedule a home visit?
Very simple. Please send an e-mail to our home visit coordinator, Mrs. Unal at and give us three available dates for your child's home visit program. We will get back to you and confirm a date. Depending on our teacher’s availability, at least two teachers will be together to visit our students and parents at their homes. 

For any questions you have about this program, send an e-mail to The best times to schedule a home visit are weekdays after 5:00 pm, and anytime during the weekends except Sunday mornings.

Fulton Science Academy Grandparents Day

A wonderful time was enjoyed by students, parents, grandparents, and teachers last Sunday lunchtime. It began with a school tour followed by a luncheon for grandparents of our students, school video and advices from our grandparents to our students during National Grandparents Weekend on Sunday, September 13, 2015.

This day had a threefold purpose:
* To honor grandparents
* To give grandparents an opportunity to get more information about their grandchildren’s school
* To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer

Thank you to everyone who attended. Please see some pictures here:


Fulton Science Academy students in 3rd through 8th grade enjoyed a wonderful field trip to Fernbank Science Museum today. Please see some pictures here:


Students explored primary and secondary colors in a truly hands-on way! Each child could choose two primary colors and then discovered the secondary color by mixing the two primary colors together :) Tons of fun!


Last week Mrs. Houston's third grade class worked in partners to solve quite a problem - Fred the Worm was stranded on a capsized boat in the ocean with his life preserver stuck under the boat! Students worked together to create a plan to save him using only four paper clips. They were not allowed to touch the boat, life preserver, or Fred. Everyone was successful and each team of third grade students exhibited creativity and various problem solving strategies!

Fulton Science Academy New Campus Opening Ceremony

We had a wonderful opening ceremony on August 27.  It was a day to remember. 

It was well attended by many state and federal officials and legislators. State Superintendent Richard Woods, Senator John Albers, Board of Education Member Lisa Kennemore, GISA President Jeff Jackson, Gifted Education Experts Dr. Gollmar and Dr. Eger, the world’s tallest living man Sultan Kosen, and NBA player Enes Kanter were among the many important guests who attended the ceremony.

Enes Kanter gave a jersey to our school and invited all the students to attend the next Atlanta Hawks game as his guests.

We received a recognition resolution from Senate and a letter from the office of Congressman Tom Price during the event.
