I have been at this school for 6 years now with my children. This has been a wonderful school until this year. The principal has come into a school that was great and turned it upside down. She has taken teachers out of there rooms and had "meetings" with them and the teachers come back to class crying. I have been up to the school on different occasions and not once did I see the principal, but when I did she did not even talk to any of the parents. We want our school back. We want our teachers to stay. The children are the ones that will be suffering if this principal is allowed to stay.

My son has been attending this school since Kindergarten, he is now going into the third grade. We LOVED that school until the recent principal came along. We've never had a problem and now all we hear is turmoil. The teachers are being bullied by the principal, 20+ teachers are being fired/transferred. All we get from MCPSS is the run around and no answers to why this is happening. Martha Peek held a "parent meeting" but didn't listen or care to ask our concerns or opinions. .

My granddaughter attends J.E. Turner Elementary School. She is treated fair and is taught with respect. Each grade for her is a challenge in a good way, as it should be. The challenge to learn more and more. To teach young children with kindness and humor but yet straightforward is a gift. This being said there are great teachers and wonderful leadership at this school. They seem so dedicated in teaching the children in a way that it seems fun to learn. At this point I have no dissatisfaction in J.E. Turner Elementary. Thank you for being there for our children. We appreciate you! Best Regards

I have grandchild in J E Turner now and the teachers are very patient with the students. I volunteer once in a while and can see the progress of the students every time I go.

JE Turner is such a great school. Both of my children have went there since kindergarten and they have loved it. My youngest child is fixing to graduate 5th grade at JE Turner. We are definitely going to miss this school. Alot of memories. Thank you JE Turner and their staff for being the best elementary school.

I have two children at this school; a son in 4th grade and a daughter in Kindergarden. They absolutely love this school and so do I! My son is in the special education program which is the absolute best! I just couldn't ask for the teachers and administrators to be more helpful and caring. This is just a wonderful, wonderful school in every way!

My husband and I are the proud Grandparents of two Turner Elementary students. We attended the parade which was held on school campus today. What a breath of fresh air! The children were very organized and creative! My husband is a member of a Mystic Organization,and I must say that we enjoyed this parade far better than any that we attended so far! Thanks to all who helped this be possible! P.S.We will be back next year!

This school is very welcoming and clean. The office staff are very friendly and I feel like my children are getting a good education. The principal is willing to work with you and when I had a problem with my son, the guidance counselor called me back right away and gave me suggestions. In other schools, I could never get the teachers, much less the counselor to return my phone calls. Overall, this is a great school and I feel comfortable keeping my children here.
