Overall Rating: A+ I am extremely pleased with Turner Elementary from every angle. First and foremost, they have created a learning enviroment that my daughter loves to attend. She is earger to learn & do better. This school encourages parent involment and parents love to get involved! What a beautiful mix! Next, Turner is always putting out information & giving informative parent night mini seminars. I just happened to come from a FCAT 2.0 Parents Night. It was very insight. I appreciate a school who takes the time to thoroughly inform the parents of whats is going on. There are so many good things from the extremely amazing music teacher (I love love love the children's music performaces each year. It always seems so darn cute with a little bit of wit thrown into them to make them even more charming and memorable.) So much good stuff. I can't say enough. If your child goes here, you won't go wrong. They will get an excellent education & they will have a caring staff encouraging your child along the way.
One thing I feel should be mentioned about Turner Elementary is that fact that there are way too many students attending this school. The area around it has grown much faster than anticipated and the influx is overwhelming. Many parents, including us, opted to pull thier children out at the end of the 11-12 school year, for other schools e.g. charter, magnet & private schools, but the problem remains. The school itself, is not very old, 5-6 years, but the fact that there are so many students makes it easy for under performing children to fall through the cracks. We opted to leave at the end of the year and our children are now attening a magnet school. We truely, were not impressed with Turner Elementary.
It's a good school, but I don't like my daughter's teacher. I want someone with more experience!
Regular ed classes have been fairly rigorous, and some of the gifted teachers are excellent. But having witnessed gifted and talented programs extensively, this one is not at the top of the pack. Turner admin should seriously evaluate the high expectations for the gifted program enrollees against the sub-par qualifications of some of the teachers in the program. Admin has been supportive otherwise and the school has a tight knit feel with events and organizations.
My son moved from China to this school on his second grade. & it is so lucky to have a great teacher,Mrs Collier here. She is so nice & patient. Encourage him to learn English step by step and help us a lot. only 10month My son did made a marvellous progress. He got "E" on nearly every course.& more important, he has confidence again.
We love this school. My son is in Ms. Caldwell's single gender class and she is the best teacher we have encountered. My son is a straight A student. The values we have at home to raise him as a young gentleman is being enforced by Ms. Caldwell. He is much more open, social and expresses himself intellectually. I can see his critical thinking, creative and scholastic thoughts being gently molded for his future. I LOVE this school.
Turner is very good a keeping parents fully involved in my childs education.
My son goes to this school and I had no problems with it. My son loves the school and learned so much. His reading is much better than when we first arrived into Florida a few years ago. I give kudo's to Ms. Caldwell for being such a wonderful A+ teacher as well as the rest of the teacher faculty and principal. They are all caring and sweet. God bless....
I agree Turner has is great school. The staff has always been nice and helpful. The teachers I have experience have been helpful and willing to listen to any concerns I am have.
I think that turner is stupendous school, the staff at turner has taught my child so much this year. I am amazed at her progress in all subjects.At the end of the year she brought all here art work home and said she had a great time this year with the winter parties and pajama parties they gave these kids a great experience. I am very happy with the school!
turner has a dedicated and caring staff who are interested in the academic and social well-being of all students. They seem to encourage parental involvement and have a variety of activities that help make it happen. My child loves going to school each day and I can see why.
Turner Elementary is an outstanding school with excellent leadership. As a parent of a third grader and a kindergartner, I could not have picked a better, safer, health conscious, well rounded school. Parents are welcome to visit any time and students overall performance speaks for itself. Turner has terrific 'extras'. This includes enrichment clubs and a comprehensive wellness program. A school with all the perks but very serious about academics .
