    Fantastic school! We home-schooled and decided to try Hallie Turner to assist with some of the classes my daughter was struggling with. We loved it so much she started full-time and recently graduated. It is a perfect blend of public school and home-school. The classes are challenging and the staff/teachers are always available. I have also started my younger daughter there and she's planning to graduate a year early.

    Wow! My child loves and trust school again she has regained her student motivation and is progressing well witrh the help and support of her teachers. I don't hear comments like 'I ask the teacher for help but he/she didn't help me.' She was a little reluctant to go in the beginning because she was told that it is an alternative school. This is a misconception it is an alternative to attending traditional high school. It is accredited the students receive a diploma and go onto achieve their goals whether they decide to attend college trade or enter the Armed Forces. It has definitely been a blessing to our family. Our daughter will graduate school a year earlier and attend college earlier because of Hallie Turner

    I am currently a student at Hallie Tuner. I go to night school at Hallie Tuner and it is the best thing that has ever happened to me. All the teachers are so nice and kind. The principal is great and willing to work with you to achieve the goals you have.

    The Director Teachers individualize the educational plan.They treat each student with respect - not as a dumb kid. They all go the extra mile to help each student pass.

    Hallie Turner is the best thing that has happened to me. It's a great opportunity for kids who don't deal well with normal highschool who work or didn't get a chance to finish at a normal highschool. The other schools in Columbus will never live up to Hallie Turner.
