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. With the diverse demographics of our existing community serving as the background theme for academics, children will develop the foundations for learning and thinking that prepares them for success in post-secondary education and careers.

Child Focused

A K-8 model is better for children and for the continuous improvement of the school. Research supports the theory that student achievement falters significantly due to the switch to middle school as compared to students who attend a K-8 school. The K-8 model also supports the FCS concept of continuous achievement. Furthermore, the expanded grade levels ensure a longer horizon of dedication from each parent elected on the governing board. This enables the governing board to be truly diverse and effective.

Innovation Curriculum

FAST is STEM certified. STEM certification is rapidly becoming a base layer, as opposed to a differentiator, in education as more schools work toward certification. The call to action the parents working to start FAST is the need for our children to be able to think critically, to develop a deep and meaningful understanding of the world around them, and how to create innovative solutions to problems.

Culture of Diversity

Our school recognizes that many cultures exist in our community. Our students are taught to respect each other’s differences and acknowledge that all cultural expressions are valid. They are taught to value what cultures have to bring to the table which empowers our students as diverse groups to all contribute. We celebrate differences, we have students from all over the world. The students are accepting of all religious practices and traditions and support students so they can share their cultures with one another.
