Welcome to Fuller Elementary

Fuller GT Magnet Elementary School is nestled near downtown Raleigh. Strong parental support, a talented and committed team of teachers, and positive school climate serve as the foundation of a thriving school community.  As a Gifted and Talented magnet school, our students enroll in an extensive array of elective courses throughout the year that aim to develop an understanding of and appreciation for the arts, and that extend and enrich the core curriculum

A strong community partnership allows Fuller to benefit from many outside resources. Currently, Fuller is a partner with NC State University in both academic and leadership initiatives.  Our staff not only sets high expectations for all students by delivering differentiated instruction, but also embraces Positive Behavior Supports as a philosophy that teaches social responsibility and character development

Fuller is a supportive, inclusive environment where strong communication among staff and administration provides a scaffolding to ensure success for all students and teachers. Come see why Fuller was nationally recognized as a “Magnet School of Distinction”
