We just started Turner middle school this fall. So far, it's been great. The kids have welcomed my student even though we are from a neighboring town. The school staff works hard on communicating with parents and it's great to have a school with good communication skills! We transferred from a school of choice which did not communicate well with parents. Turner has a great offering of after school activities and student/teacher involvement.
I will agree and confirm that the parent who wrote about cliches in this school. They are abundant. Located in a small town, in a beautiful old neighborhood is about the only appealing thing this school has to offer. If given the chance to do it all over again, I would have sent my child elsewhere.
As a parent of students that have attended this school I would advise you not to being your children here. Although the small atmosphere and the small town education might seem appealing, the other troubles that come with this environment is not worth it. Lots of bullying and a blind eye is always taken not only with administrators but also the parents. Lots of cliches within the school.
Great, supportive, involved teachers at Turner. As in every school, there are a couple who shouldn't be teaching, but 98% of them are top notch. The counselors are the best around. The prinicipal is another story. No support given. Jumps to conclusions. Not proficient in explaining things. Do not participate in wrestling at Turner as long as Bennett and Fuller are involved. They do not provide supervision or support to the team, and do not stand up for their wrestlers.
Turner Middle School is my choice for great schools, the teachers, the administration I can't just say enough. This year, a young man from this school who was deeply respected, passed away at an early age. The whole school, 6th through 8th embraced this young man. His class of 8th graders presented his parents with love, kindness and the most respect an 8th grade could imagine. Best of all this eighth grade found love, respect, and caring for each other that will last them a lifetime I guarantee, for they lost a loved one to a most horrible, horrific and as their fallen classmate would state 'Cancer Sucks'. May God bless these children always!
Turner Middle School in Berthoud is the best school anybody can attend. I am a parent of student that attended this school for 2.5 year, he past away March 24 this year. The support my son got during his absence due to cancer treatment and the support that the students and my family got after he became an Angel was outstanding. The students are very respectful to each other, teachers and their community; they always step up when needed. All faculty members at this school are very devoted to students and their community. The consoling system, student motivational, afterschool and sport programs this school develop is excellent, the time they devoted to their students is exceptional. This is the school that I was proud sending my child to learn.
My daughter attended Turner for her middle school years. I have nothing but good to say about it. Academic programs are excellent, teachers are great. I love that it's a small town school. Staff is familiar with all students. Music, Arts and Sports are available. Parents are very involved if want to be. Safety is a big concern and in a small school like this, if anything is going on everyone knows about it and it is addressed. Kids will be kids no matter what school!
