Turtle Bay is one of the better schools in Redding, CA. The teachers, instructional assistants, and yard duties are wonderful. I give them huge props for doing their job the right way and for always providing support to students. The principal on the other hand is hard to please. She wrongfully accuses students and staff of not doing their job the right way, never praises the staff for the good/positive work they do, and always has something negative to say to the staff by putting them down and humiliating them in front of students. The principal needs to show more support in a positive manner, rather than making everyone feel uncomfortable and having to deal with her difficult/snappy attitude and controlling self. From my personal experiences, the principal is not a friendly person and she will snap at anyone when she feels like they aren't meeting up to her "expectations". This is the reason why I've rated the school 3 stars. As much as I enjoy the school, the principal is a huge downfall and it really puts a negative outlook on the school.

This was our family's first year at this school and it has not been the best experience. In an effort to not overstep my boundaries, I will strongly encourage parents to check out the teachers that your child could end up with.

I have attended Turtle bay since kindergarden and I am now going into 8th grade. Going to Turtle Bay has been truly wonderful and I only wish that I didnt have to go to high school so I could watch as it gets bigger and better with each passing year. The teachers are amazing as well as the staff and I have learned a lot through these years and hope that this review encourages students to attend turtle bay elementary/middle school!

We started out in the Home School program - that was an awesome experience with so much support. When we decided that our little girl would benefit more from being in the regular classroom, the transition was beautiful. She has an IEP and the school has been very good at meeting her needs. Her teachers have been awesome, they communicate well with us, and give their home and cell phone numbers out to all their students. We have been truly blessed by this school. My daughter was chomping at the bit for school to start again. We have another awesome teacher this year. - Mindy Stephens

Our children have attended Turtle Bay since Kindergarden and we are very happy with the school. The teachers are wonderful and the academic programs are fun and challanging. The Principle, Cass Ditzler, and Vice Principle, Margaret Arthofer are involved and caring. The music, art, and sports progams are top notch. The parent envolvement is wonderful and the Parent/Faculity Club works very hard to create a larger than average budget for students and teacher funds and activities! We love Turtle Bay!

Turtle Bay School has some of the best teachers in the state! Ms. Mendoza is one of the outstanding first grade teachers. She incorporates art, music and science into her daily curriculum. Our children have had her in summer school and in regular classes and they just love her. We think Turtle Bay has a lot to offer being so close to the Sundial bridge and the arboretum. Thank you.
