This year our students not only won 1st place as a team and 1st place individually but have also received three placements in the top 5 and five placements in top 15. This is an amazing achievement. Such huge achievements never come easy. Mrs. Duzyol worked with them during summer, thanksgiving, winter break, weeknights and weekends and they achieved this incredible results. Congratulations to Mrs. Duzyol and math department. We are all very proud of you and the Math Team Students! Way to go!

Fulton Science Academy Advances to Nationals after Taking Top Award In State MATHCOUNTS Competition!

Big picture

March 19th, 2018. Alpharetta, GA. – Fulton Science Academy’s Middle School Math Team won First Place in the 2018 Georgia MATHCOUNTS Competition that was held at Saint Luke Presbyterian Church on Monday, March 19, 2018.

Additionally, two FSA students, Richard Yu and Athiwat Ackaramongkolrotn, and the school’s Department Head and Math Team Coach, Mrs. Sema Duzyol, will head to Nationals in Washington DC later this spring.

Only the top four students from each state are invited to participate in the National MATHCOUNTS Competition, as well as the coach from the state’s ranking first place team who is given the unique opportunity to lead the state team to Nationals. This is the third consecutive year that Fulton Science Academy Private School has had at least one student and its coach advance to the National MATHCOUNTS.

“I am thrilled to be coaching Georgia’s MATHCOUNTS Team and to be representing Georgia at the National Tournament three years in a row,” said Coach Duzyol.

In addition to an overall first place team win in the state finals, FSA was honored to have seventh grader, Richard Yu, place first individually and sixth grader, Athiwat Ackaramongkolrotn, place third individually on March 19 against the best mathletes in the state. Bringing further accolades to the school, seventh graders, Ethan Gao, Arnav Arora, and Kevin Yuan won fifth place, 13th place and 15th place respectively.

“It is a testament to the dedication of Coach Duzyol to have three students place in the top five finalists at the state competition where they competed against the best minds from every chapter in Georgia,” said Fulton Science Academy Principal, Kenan Sener.

Coach Duzyol confirmed the intense competition, commenting, “Every year, the state tournament gets more rigorous and competition questions become more challenging, and yet we have seven students qualified to state and five of them placed in top fifteen! It’s quite exciting! Compared to last year we exponentially increased our performance by actively engaging in intense series of collaborative workshops during summer break, thanksgiving break, winter break, every weekend, and week days which showed the students’ very serious dedication to the tournament.”

Duzyol continued, “I could not be more proud of our students. In addition to juggling very demanding academic schedules, they still manage to spend dozens of hours in workshops preparing. It is such an inspiration to guide them and work together with them; their shared love of math and the positive manner in which they encourage one another is really something special.”

Team members were all thrilled to see how much they have accomplished thus far. “We definitely went into this state competition with our sights set on advancing to nationals,” said seventh grader, Richard Yu, FSA Math team member and Georgia State’s first place winner. “We competed against approximately best 200 mathletes of Georgia qualified to State level so it was critical for us to stay focused, calm, and to hammer away at each problem methodically.


Congratulations to our champions and their coach Mrs. Duzyol! Good Luck to Georgia MATHCOUNTS Team at the Nationals in May, in Washington DC!!

Seth D., A change for kids

My parents came from a small town in Philippines called Bicol. We went there when I was little and I can still remember the fresh air, the simpleness of life and the purest heart of the kids I played with. But I came back home with a heavy heart thinking of the unfortunate kids my age. As I grew up, I had always thought of a way to give back to the community who gave my parents their simple but happy childhood.

Before my parents immigrated to the United States, they had helped many people in the Philippines thrive. They had given money, food, clothes, and shelter to those who had needed them. Their actions have impacted mine, and to continue their acts of kindness to those who couldn’t support themselves, it would have been only the greatest honor to follow their legacy of helping others.

A few months ago, my parent’s hometown was struck with a volcanic eruption where families were displaced in evacuation centers. The evacuation centers were public schools which disrupted the children’s education for months. Our family purchased second-hand clothes, sent 12 boxes and distributed to the displaced families. My aunt’s foundation also helped in feeding and provided some groceries. As of this time, most of the families have returned home but the help does not stop there….

School will start in June and some kids will not even have papers to write on or shoes to wear or even food to eat. So friends, classmates and families, I humbly ask if you can spare some change to help these kids to provide school supplies and perhaps provide nutritious food. I have set-up a “Go Fund Me”, a “Patreon” and of course a jar in school lobby where you can drop some extra change. We hope that you can help these kids receive the education that they deserve. Thank you. My target for school year 2018-19 is $500 to purchase school supplies for about 100 first graders of Barayong Elementary School.

Here are some photos during our family’s past relief distribution.

Khalil L. (6th Grade) receives multiple awards at state science fair!

Congratulations to Khalil L. (6th Grade) on his performance during the State Science Fair. He received "Future Science Stars Award" and "Honors Ribbon" in Junior Division. He is now eligible to compete in the National Science Fair. Good Luck Khalil! The Georgia Science & Engineering Fair (GSEF) is Georgia’s premier forum for students to showcase their original research, compete for awards, and interact with top-level professional scientists. The science fair system in Georgia serves not only to recognize students for their achievements, but also to prepare students to succeed and flourish in an increasingly complex and highly technical world by becoming problem solvers, critical thinkers, reflective learners, and more productive and influential members of their communities.

Our 3rd Grade students visited Piedmont Park's Apiary today!

Third grade visited Piedmont Park’s apiary; a collection of beehives to learn about the characteristics, life cycle, and importance of honey bees in an ecosystem. Students explored the process of pollination, identified parts of a flower, and learned how bees make honey. Students also studied the structure of a beehive and why a honeycomb’s pattern of repeating hexagons is so highly efficient. Students had a great time with the program learning all about honey bees.

Spring Allergies are often caused by tree pollen.


Common Symptoms are:

  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Wheezing
  • Itchy Ears & Throat
  • Sneezing
  • Runny Nose



Tips for Avoiding Pollen:

  • Keep windows closed.

  • Remove clothes after being outdoors. Consider putting a hamper for soiled clothes outside of the bedroom.
  • Do not hang clothes or linens outside to dry.
  • Avoid outdoor activities between 5am and 10am when pollens are more prevalent.
  • Skin testing by a board certified pediatric allergist is the best was to diagnose your spring allergy triggers.

aftercare hours reminder


Parents, please be reminded that After - School Care is provided every day from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm for a fee of $15.00 per day or $200.00 for the month. We ask that parents pick up any remaining students by 6:00 pm, and no later, as the school closes at 6:00pm. Sometimes our Academic Teams will stay later, but these students are not considered to be in After-Care. There are also sometimes outside organizations that use our facility for sports events, so it may look like there are still plenty of people here, but these more often than not, do not include aftercare students. Thank you for your understanding.

Home Visits - A Fun Way to meet your teachers!

Home visits are a casual way for your child to spend time with his/her teacher in the comfort of their home. Teachers enjoy having a chance to see children in this comfortable environment, doing whatever makes them most happy and spend time with children and their parents outside of a regular school day.


Simply email junal@fultonscienceacademy.org with some suggested dates/times, as well as your students' name(s) and homeroom assignments. Ms. Unal will be in touch to confirm final details.
