16 Parent Reviews for Turner Creek Elementary School

School lacks effective administrative leadership. Staff and administrators alike are unreliable - don't expect appointments to be kept or commitments to be met. Sadly, my 7 and 8 year old children have a stronger sense of personal responsibility than do most of the staff.

BEWARE!!!!!! Keep up with your child here because they will call Child Protective Services on you for NO REASON AT ALL!!!! Maybe they are trying to keep their ratings up like other schools by making you feel unsafe at this school, just BEWARE!!!

I absolutely LOVE this school. From the front door, and entering the office, I am always greeted with a smiling face. My child has been there for 4 years in this school. The teachers are always smiling, and appear to enjoy their job. I TOTALLY disagree that the previous post said these teachers appear ...  Read more

This school is awesome! You walk in the front door and you feel the love! The front office staff greets you with a smile. Teachers always smile in the hallway and have positive things to stay. The student work in the hallways reflects relevant learning. The teachers are great! My three sons started ...  Read more

TCE has lost its way. I agree with the previous post whole-heartedly. It has gone downhill since the previous principal left. My children have been at this school since it opened. We used to see Mrs. Hargrove every day, before or after school. I have seen Mrs. Spalding two times in the past 2 years. ...  Read more

The school has gone downhill ever since Jan Hargrove left. My children have attended since the school first opened. Mrs. Hargrove was incredible and made TCE what it was. A few years ago she left and the school has changed for the worst. To be fair, we gave the new principal one year. It was horrible. ...  Read more

I wish we had our previous Principal back. Not impressed with the direction the school has taken since she left. Test scores down, never seen Principal. When she is seen she is giving her stellar admin staff a hard time.

I check and speak with my kids about their school and schoolwork. From what I have seen, the materials taught is either one or two grades below what it should be. I understand some kids take time to catch up but this is not the way. Also, this hinders the students who can move ahead. Maybe they can start ...  Read more

Although I don't have a lot of time to get more involved in activities at the school I know a lot of other parents do. I have met the teachers for my third grader and Kindegartener and they both impressed me as being dedicated and involved teachers. There are many opportunities to volunteer at the ...  Read more

Turner Creek is such a great school. The students are taught at their own pace as much as I've seen at a private school. My second grade student is given many challenging activities that do not involve a set of work sheets to simply keep her busy. Whan my son had this same teacher, he was given all ...  Read more
