Turtleback is an okay school. Since my children did not attend any other school in the Poway district I can not compare it to other schools in the district. The curriculum is difficult and was a little too hard for one of my children. They did try to help her but really just put most of the work onto us - which is fine but even we had a difficult time trying to keep her caught up with everyone else. If your child does well academically then they will do well but if not get ready for some long nights of homework. I did feel that the teachers cared about the children but they can not help what the district and state push for them to teach.

My son went to Turtleback for PEPP Mrs. Reid was his teacher. We were very happy with Turtleback and its staff very friendly very professional very helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you Turtleback! We still wish we were there.
I was a student teacher for a 4th grade classroom at Turtleback and was impressed with all facets of the educational services provided. The staff are extremely committed to their students' success. They maintain high expectations for not only their students but of themselves.
