    I have been a parent of a child in Turner Middle School for the last two years. My opinion is as follows The school overall is a good school. The Principals are great with working with the students. Their teachers all seem very helpful to the students. My complaint about the district is not the school in particular but about the parents of the children in the district. They are very rude! Im sorry if this offends anyone but its the truth. Not all parents in this community have this problem but a lot do.
