Turner is the best school ever the students are nice and the teachers are to


Posted October 21, 2013

Such a bad school, I went to Turner from 2007-2010 some of the teachers were nice but the students were horrible. I understand why it's rated a 2. I'm glad I'm out of there now. -anonymous

three words WORST SCHOOL EVER!!!! on my first day in the 6th grade everybody was talking about me and they made me lose my confidence. Those kids are rude and im so happy that i got taken out the 2nd day i was there because i HATED it. I cried the 1st and 2nd day. I wasn't going to last a year at that school. I go to a private school now and it was the best choice my parents made. I love it there and i love all the teachers. I made 4 friends the first day at my new school. At Turner i made NONE!!!. Don't go to Turner

Turner elementary was THE WORST!!!! We were only there for 2 days and a boy punched my daughter in the eye. We took her out of there right away. . DO NOT let your child attend Turner Elementary, The kids are fighting and cussing and your child doesn't need to be around that kind of environment.

I was a student there, and I was constantly harassed. I reported my situation to the security staff and nothing was done about it. If you want your kids to learn in a SAFE place I suggest avoiding this school.

I've had four children attend Turner and have not been pleased yet. The staff is not as friendly as they should be and some really don't seem to care about the students.

I didn't feel encouraged at all to be involved in my childrens educations. In fact when I brought up situations that needed prompt attention it was put off or neglected all together.

I would not recommend this school to any parent that wish for their child to learn. I felt like i was a burden to the staff whenever i would visit. Some of the teachers are messier than the students. Lack of professionalism.

Dont send your children here if you wish for them to be taught is a safe bully free environment. What ever happened to protecting the students who wish to be educated.

My child has just completed the first grade in Mrs Robinson's class. She enjoyed school, as well as the teacher. She finished the school year with all A's and B's. Truly the teacher, principal, and staff are to be praised! Thank-you all for a job well done!

I have three sons that attend Turner in the elementary part. The counselor Ms.Hayes has been so helpful the last few years. They really care about the students. Also, Ms. Bendow has been wonderful. I see so many of the staff that interacts with the children. I have had a few minor problems, but the overall is great. I will at any time recommend Turner. Sonia Montoya

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (iLEAP) to assess students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 in math, English language arts, science, and social studies. The iLEAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
