  • Even though the school is a newer building it is already too small for it's current population.extra portables are already being used as classrooms.due to new subdivisions recently built and with new ones currently in the building prossess on the very street the schools located, it's only comon sense that even more students will soon croud the already over stuffed school. the school does not have the level of equipment or quility of construction or desighn you would find elsewhere in the country at comparable schools.the school itself already is obsolite and should be replaced as soon as posible.the teachers and staff of the school seem to do a great job teaching my children and making due with what they do have but, could do so much more for all our children if the school was larger and more modern.

  • This school is very clean and the teachers and staff are very friendly as well as great they work with each student to make sure that they are learning as they should and they also keep the parents informed of the child's progress

  • I think J.E.Turner is a great school that has something to offer to every student that goes there. I was only there for one year, but I gained much knowledge that will help me later on in life. J.E.Turner's teachers work to their best ability and they really do make a difference in the children that go there. I recommend this school to every parent who is looking for a great elementary school for their child. Everyone at J.E.Turner does their best to help a child in need. I have never seen any teacher or staff turn away from a person who needed help with anything. Even if the task was hard they were always there to lend a helping hand. I most defenitely give this schoolan A+. It deserves it.
