About The Fulton School at St. AlbansLocated just outside of Wildwood (MO), The Fulton School at St. Albans is a small, independent school preparing students for higher education and a lifetime of learning. The Fulton School is a place where students feel safe, challenged, and supported by their teachers and fellow students. Using a Montessori-based, multi-aged, personalized approach gives each student the space to learn without limits and to be curious without caution. The beautiful and peaceful surroundings provide a natural outdoor classroom for science, art, and physical activity. Whether you're a prospective parent, teacher, current parent, or a casual browser, we hope you find a bit of the Fulton School spirit here. The Fulton School community is a special group of people working pretty hard to make the world a more beautiful place in their small ways.
