I have had two students go from K-12th in CFBISD. Turner has been a great school, awesome school spirit and staff. The new small learning communities are a big benefit to students that start as freshmen and attend all 4 years. Our youngest will graduate in May, and she is extremely well prepared for ...  Read more

I have two kids who live in the CFBISD area.Parents know your hand book, policies and TEA information. Janie Stark Elementary school is AMAZING!Its the Middle school and high school they get lost and the faculty are desensitized.

I loved Turner in '95, and my son loves it now in 2012. As far as the tardy rule we have never a problem. He only has gotten one tardy and it was dismissed. If your child shows up on time, has desire to suceed and works at it, this school will allow them the freedom and comfortable enviroment needed. ...  Read more

I am 2011 alumni. For the first year and a half of high school I attended Newman Smith High School down the street from Turner. I had a horrible experience with Newman Smith as a whole.

I think Turner is an AMAZING school. Teachers, students, and principals get along just fine. There's a friendly person greeting you at every corner and it amazes me how students always give it their all to prove everyone wrong. Turner might not be winning district championships but they have the thing ...  Read more

I have found Turner to be a great school. It is in a bad neighborhood, but but the school is safer than any other high school in the district. The activities are great, and the teachers are understanding. What amazes me most are the students. You would imagine a school like this to have groups and fights ...  Read more

I graduated from Turner in 2001. I really enjoyed all my teachers. Mr. Holland did an excellent job all the time, especially when we had things happen. The football program is turning around. It was good in the 60's and 70's and then turned south. Now its getting great once again. Get'em Lions!
