    This is 'THE BEST' elementary school in Turner District. The Teachers are excellent the Principal is the best. I wouldn't send my kids to any other school. I wish the school was K-12! I am proud to say my kids go to this school. They are very well educated and have learned great Values. I'm sad this is my daughters last yr I cannot wait until my youngest is old enough to attend.
