Posted February 23, 2004

I have been a parent of a child in Turner Middle School for the last two years. My opinion is as follows: The school overall is a good school. The Principals are great with working with the students. Their teachers all seem very helpful to the students. My complaint about the district is not the school in particular but about the parents of the children in the district. They are very rude! Im sorry if this offends anyone but its the truth. Not all parents in this community have this problem but a lot do.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
