Principal's Message

Welcome to Robert Fulton College Preparatory, home of the Jaguars!

I am excited that you are visiting our school’s website to learn more about the programs we have to offer. At Fulton CP, we are committed to providing our students in grades 6-12 a rigorous, relevant and personalized learning environment that supports their academic, physical, and social/emotional needs. Our goal is for all students to graduate equipped with 21st century skills and competencies so that they are successful beyond high school and are able to positively influence their community and the world as Agents of Change.

Our students enjoy a wide selection of academic, extra-curricular and athletic opportunities. Fulton CP offers a gifted program that includes honors and AP classes in most subjects. In addition to art and computer electives, our courses include participation in our award winning music program, which received the 2017 Grammy Signature School Award, student leadership in middle and high, and a highly decorated Air Force JROTC program for high school students. Students with an interest in athletics also have the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive athletics program.

I encourage you to visit our school and see that we are committed to our students. This year, we are embarking on a new school year with great enthusiasm and anticipation of the opening of a new magnet school in Fall 2019. The Communications Arts and Music Magnet will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole, offering students and parents more choice.

To our Fulton families, I encourage you to support our efforts by sending your child to school every day and taking advantage of the workshops in our parent center. I also invite you to attend our events such as Back to School, Parent Conferences, and Open House. Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated!

If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at (818) 947-2103.
