  • I loved the teachers and the staff. They were so nice and loving expecially Mrs.Hill the 1st and 2nd grade teacher. And Mr. and Mrs. Cooper. I had gone there from pre K-3rd grade.

    Love,

  • As a former student I must say that this school had a pretty good elementary program. After that it is simply terrible. I only had one assignment my last year there that required me to work on outside of class. The rest I just completed right before class or during much of the goof off time that we had. I attended JHS and it was great they really allowed me to develop my talents rather then discouraging them with a great selection of classes comparatively. While I did not attend Turner I am sure it is was better than Westfair. So please please please do you child a favor and send them to JHS (or Turner) when it comes time. I am writing this because my parents pulled me and I got just one year there and it so radically different (in a good way) that I feel like I should try and help others that may be in a similar place right now.
