I went to this school and I absolutely enjoyed it. :) There was an indoor swimming pool, a football field, and track. The teachers were good at keeping their students in line, so no annoying children! On Halloween the middles schoolers would carve pumpkins. The cafeteria food was also nutritious and great tasting. There would also be an AR store at the end of the year that the students could buy from with their book points from reading.
I have more than one child in this school, and I have been very pleased with the education they are receiving there. Turpin is far ahead of the state on test scores, the school and the community has excellent school spirit, and the faculty and administration is doing a good job handling their jobs. There are a few teachers that are not the best, but they seem to be the exception, not the rule. My children have received very personalized instruction, which is definately helping them in their early years. And the main point for me at this point is the test scores. I have no idea what the first reviewer is talking about. Apparently they have a personal problem. There are some really bad schools out there, but Turpin is NOT one of them.
