Our Challenge


In most schools children are given information and tested to show they can replicate it accurately. However, many lack the ability to think critically and cannot show meaningful understanding of the material in spite of high test scores. Without this understanding children cannot do something creative and innovative with the content. Focusing on STEM content only gets our children to the starting line. Creativity and innovation will get them into the race to win.

Our Mission


The mission of Fulton Academy of Science and Technology (FAST) is to provide an education based on design thinking and problem-solving with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to K-8 children in the diverse Fulton County community. FAST’s goal is to prepare children in a way that provides them a foundation to be creative innovators and problem solvers so they are prepared for success and leadership in our rapidly changing world.

Our Identity


There are a few key characteristics which make FAST unique.  FAST is parent designed and governed meaning the FAST concept was developed by parents of current students.  FAST uses innovation orientation within STEM Content which will increase critical thinking, help create a deep understanding in content areas and foster creativity and innovation.  FAST follows the K-8 Model and FAST is planning innovative after-school enrichment opportunities.
