    I love Turnberry my son is autistic and developmentally delayed he has attended Turnberry for 4 years. The staff in the special needs program are amazing. They really care about the students education. Mrs. Losurdo is a gold mine she has improved the education of the special needs so much. Since attending Turnberry he has reached a level of learning that even I'm amazed by. His is intergraded in a regular classroom along with his peers whom have treated him with care and respect. I want to thank Mr. Minnie the principal of Turnberry. He instilled the importance of treating people all people with respect and to respect themselves enough to put their education first. If I could change anything at Turnberry it would be for my son to be able stay at Turnberry for his 6th grade year . Thank you to all at Turnberry.

    We have been with Turnberry since the day it opened. All of the teachers are awesome and very involved with the kids. The principal is very hands on and values training the teachers and support staff. My son is advanced and each one of his teachers has made a point to ensure his continued growth and has had amazing growth every year in spite going in at a level well above grade level.

    We love Turnberry. The principal is very hands on and not only listens to the concerns brought to him but he actually does something about them. My daughter is going into 4th grade and my son into 1st. We've never had a teacher we didn't love. The PTA is amazing and overall parent involvement is exceptional. We are very lucky to have this as our neighborhood school. My children have grown both academically and socially while attending Turberry.

    We chose to enroll our children in this school. It has been the best decision for our kids. They have experienced teachers that enjoy what they are doing. They are invested in the education and well being the students. They have gone above and beyond in helping one our kids that has academic challenges. Our child is excelling self esteem is at an all time high this kid is having fun learning and motivated to keep proving he/she can do more. The staff has been supportive 110%. They come up with new ideas if old ones aren't working any more. They use a variety of teaching techniques in all subject areas to keep kids engaged in learning and having a great time doing it. They do an excellent job in supporting student's independence and responsibility. The CSAP scores may not be the highest but they are teaching every child to excel at their level. The parent involvement is super. The PTO has great activities and fundraisers which we need desperately. The parents are welcomed with cheerful attitudes. It is very welcoming and easy to "fit in" with other parents and staff there. We LOVE Turnberry.

    My two girls attend this school. The teachers are great. My oldest is in second grade. She was way behind in her class. Her teacher was very concerned about her. Her teacher worked with my daughter and didn't give up. Know she is at grade level. Thank you so much )

    I really like everything about Turnberry! The teachers are awesome with the kids and the principal is in tune and a great leader. My only complaint is the parking lot in the need to be bigger!!!!

    This school opened two years ago. My daughter was in 2nd grade and my son attended pre-kindergarten program. My son's teachers were fabulous as well as his kindergarten teacher this year. My daughter's teacher last year was awful just plain awful and the principal recognized this and did not rehire the teacher for this year. She is constantly evaluating her staff/teachers to ensure that they are all on the same page with what she envisions for this school. She is available to speak with parents (lots of visits phone calls and emails last year re. teacher) and does not seem to be annoyed or bothered. My daughter's teacher this year has been more than wonderful. Love this school and the staff. The PTA is great and does lots of fun things throughout the year.
