The administration and teachers really live The 7 Habits! The school is only three years old yet everyone works together like a well- oiled machine.

I would agree with the previous review that the school WAS disorganized. However I am HAPPY to say that the new principal has CHANGED ALL THAT FOR THE BETTER! Communication, organization and frankly everything has improved I think Dr. Lemaster has really turned this school into the A+ school the community was hoping for. My sons are in 2nd (Mrs. Burgman) and 4th Ms. Cochran, BOTH are great teachers and I hope the principal is able to instill the same kind of greatness into all the other teachers at the school as the ones my sons have had. PS my youngest had Mrs. Mehl last year - FANTASTIC FANTASTIC TEACHER I cannot say enough great things about her - THANKS Mrs. Mehl you are really appreciated! (Isaiah's Dad)

This school is so unorganized.. I am a parent pick up, kids gets out at 2:35 but yes they start calling the students out at 2:45 or 2:50.. I've seen other school do it faster.. One time i went to pick up my daughter early and went to the cafeteria doors they told me i had to go to the office which i did and the lady upfront told ne i am sorry i can't go get her its too late, i went back to cafeteria the lady said mmm i cannot do nothing about it, I had the name tag and saw my daughter there and she said you will have to wait and talk to someone from administrator.. I talked to the assistant principal and she said yu have to go to the office, i told her I did they told me i am too late.. She came with me and the lady had to go get my daughter for me.. This school is great but sometimes they are just ridiculous...

There's nothing that makes me happier than coming to work and it not being work. I love the school and everything that fills it. This includes other teachers, staff, students, and parents. I can't wait to continue watching Tortuga grow!

I am so glad my daughter is going to this school, she is more responsible and independent, is eager to learn and has not been a single day she refuse to go, she really loves her school, despite she is in Kindergarten and only 5 yrs. old. Whenever I had time I go to lunch with her, her teacher is very friendly and helpful with any question I have about her and her duties. I think some parents should be more involve in their children duties and activities in the school there is always time, even If you have to work, You should not wait school year is almost over and realize your kid doesn't bring homework. There is also phone calls, emails that you can use to communicate with teachers or the principal If there is a big concern. Other thing I see the teachers motivate kids to read my daughter is reading now and taking AR test she loves to read!! Y only give 1 Star to Parent involvement! That is the only thing the school needs but of course depend on the parents help,The Principal Adams deserves 10 Stars!!!
