This school is the best school in California. And also this school is so amazing for kids!!
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
Great Home School program through the school. Wonderful music teacher!
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!
This is actually a Grandparent Review! My granddaughter is a orthopedically handicapped student. She is very bright and brave! Her teacher this year is truly wonderful and I am so glad we are at Turtle Bay School!
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.
