My son has done very well in this school; the staff seem to be very on top of everything, whether it be something big or small. My son was behind in reading when he first started here, and after only 4 months he caught up to where he should be, and then exceeded that. The things that bother me about the school is that most parents of students are very snobby, and there are a lot of families with a lot of money and if you're not one of those you get treated 'okay' but nothing beyond that.

I have a very good relationship with the tps staff. They all are so caring and helpful. I would encourage anyone who is thinking of moving to Turner to visit the schools to see the careing atmosphere that travel through these halls and into the classrooms. They have many 'tools' in place that help ensure that every child will have the chance to learn in a way that is most productive for them. Thanks for all the work that goes into the planning of everyday lessons to all the staff.

My son loves his school and I like that I have good communication with his teachers.If there is an issue the teachers and principle are right on top of it.They keep the parents in the loop and I think that makes my child thrive.

About the tests

In 2012-2013 Maine used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math and in grades 5 and 8 in writing. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maine. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
