I have one child at Matthew Turner now and another one who graduated from the same school who is now in middle school. The teachers and school staff are absolutely wonderful. Curriculum is top notch, as evidenced by my middle schooler who is not only breezing through middle school but constantly on honor ...  Read more

Excellent school. I moved to Benicia for the schools two years ago and I am very pleased with that choice. A bit about my situation...I have two daughters attending this school. Neither of my kids attended preschool so I was a little concerned about their transition, particularly when the Kindergarten ...  Read more

Parents and teachers are very engaged to the benefit of the students. Due to this year's change in principals, I have to rate four starts until the new leadership is established. Past leadership has balanced school funds with curriculum and parental involvement.

This school could not be better! Great teachers, great principal. 99.9% of the parents are involved in the extra activities, and a majority of the parents and students come to the extra event held after school or on the weekends. My daughter has learned far more than others her age that are at different ...  Read more

I have not been happy with this school. Am looking at other options. Teachers are great but to much emphasis on test scores which creates competitive environment in children.

It's a wonderful school. I have two boys, one now in 6th and the other in 3rd. The teachers are fantastic, and there are lots of supportive parents to help out. We feel very lucky to have this school in our neighborhood.

I am a parent of three children in this school. I have found this school to be cold, uninformed and downright rude. The teachers I have dealt with are full of superiority and condemnation. There is little understanding and gratefulness for the children or the parental involvement, which is extreme. ...  Read more

My son has been at Matthew Turner since kindergarten and we LOVE it. I do not agree with the negative posts by other parents who stated the teachers work well with only the 'highly motivated' children. I work in the classrooms and I have seen some incredible teachers doing an incredible job with ALL ...  Read more

My 2 children have attended Matthew Turner since my now 6th grader was in 1st grade (I have a 4th grader attending). I am shocked by the negative reviews given. This is one of the best schools in the district and I couldn't be more pleased. The office staff is fabulous, and really keep the school ...  Read more
