Turner County High School Reviews

My overall experience was sub-par. The main reason being because of the staff and administration. By that I mean teachers were leaving at the end of almost every school year and by the time I got to my senior year, almost all of the teachers that I had went through those previous three years with had found employment elsewhere. Throughout my time at this high school it was also difficult keeping a principal for more than a year.

I really enjoy the school and they have some good teachers. At this time, the school is in desperate need of teachers. If they can find teachers, this will make the school much better!
Turner County High for me was a great place to go to see friends, laugh, play around, and even eat lunch, but it was not really a place I would refer to as a school. It was okay at times, and there were one or two teachers who actually cared about the mental growth of the students. I would change many things about Turner County High School.
