    As a parent of a 6th grader who just started middle school this year I found our transition into Turner Middle school smooth and easy. We were worried about the change but the teachers and students were extremely welcoming. As the year has progressed our son is doing very well. He loves his classes especially the new technology he's able to learn. The electives he's offered are top notch and giving him real world knowledge. Everyday he comes home excited to tell us what he has learned. Core subjects like science and math have inspired him to want to learn more! This is a great school!

    As a parent of students that have attended this school I would advise you not to being your children here. Although the small atmosphere and the small town education might seem appealing the other troubles that come with this environment is not worth it. Lots of bullying and a blind eye is always taken not only with administrators but also the parents. Lots of cliches within the school.

    Great supportive involved teachers at Turner. As in every school there are a couple who shouldn't be teaching but 98% of them are top notch. The counselors are the best around. The prinicipal is another story. No support given. Jumps to conclusions. Not proficient in explaining things. Do not participate in wrestling at Turner as long as Bennett and Fuller are involved. They do not provide supervision or support to the team and do not stand up for their wrestlers.

    The teachers really care about helping my daughter succeed and the administration works hard to create a great learning environment.

    Turner Middle School is my choice for great schools the teachers the administration I can't just say enough. This year a young man from this school who was deeply respected passed away at an early age. The whole school 6th through 8th embraced this young man. His class of 8th graders presented his parents with love kindness and the most respect an 8th grade could imagine. Best of all this eighth grade found love respect and caring for each other that will last them a lifetime I guarantee for they lost a loved one to a most horrible horrific and as their fallen classmate would state 'Cancer Sucks'. May God bless these children always!

    Turner Middle School in Berthoud is the best school anybody can attend. I am a parent of student that attended this school for 2.5 year he past away March 24 this year. The support my son got during his absence due to cancer treatment and the support that the students and my family got after he became an Angel was outstanding. The students are very respectful to each other teachers and their community; they always step up when needed. All faculty members at this school are very devoted to students and their community. The consoling system student motivational afterschool and sport programs this school develop is excellent the time they devoted to their students is exceptional. This is the school that I was proud sending my child to learn.

    My daughter attended Turner for her middle school years. I have nothing but good to say about it. Academic programs are excellent teachers are great. I love that it's a small town school. Staff is familiar with all students. Music Arts and Sports are available. Parents are very involved if want to be. Safety is a big concern and in a small school like this if anything is going on everyone knows about it and it is addressed. Kids will be kids no matter what school!

    The teachers and administrators are great people who really care about the students. However the principal is too focused on making everyone on the board happy when she should be more focused on the well being of the students.
