Turner High School Reviews
I enjoyed how Turner was a smaller high school. My class was made up of about 110 students, which made our grade really close to each other over the years growing up together. The teachers truly cared about how we were doing in class and also outside of class. They valued our mental health, and would tell us to look at them as a friend at time when in need. I made very close friendships with a couple of teachers who I would vent to when I was having troubles outside of school. The only thing I wish that would have been different would be the college readiness. I have gone into college feeling not that prepared. We didn't go over the ACT or even talk about it that much before we had took it. If Turner High were to make more classes for upperclassmen that would teach things such as how to fill out a check, how to fill out a job application, or how to do well on the ACT students would feel more prepared going into college and getting out into the real world.
The Turner faculty is a one of a kind unit of people who are exceedingly aware of the stereotypes that come with the district they are in. They understand that others look at a small school as exclusive, and they break that stigma to further promote a diverse and accepting train of thought. The teachers have a relationship with stidents and make it a personal goal to guide their classroom to not only grow in a scholarly fashion, but also to become better people. Turner students are involved in sports, music, and school, and the teachers and administration do their best to guide them towards their passions and push them to benefit themselves. We've recently hired teachers that have a heart to see change and a passion for their subject, so the furture looks bright. The student spirit seems to lack the gusto that the teachers have, but it may be because they are so involved. The students will learn to be better people, though some have a ways to go.
I can see why this school would be great for the "normal kids," because they can take all the electives they want to prepare them for their future, but as a special education student, Math Labs and Structured study halls, as well as core classes having to be taken at a specific time during the day get in the way of that for me, leaving me to have to learn the things I want to learn on my own time, which forces me to refuse to make friends so that I don't feel bad when I end up ditching them for my personal studies. I'm also planning on getting a job next year, which will only make me feel more busy and isolated than I do now. I'm writing this during the quarantine, and let me just say I love being "homeschooled" MUCH more than I enjoyed being at Turner. I have much more time to focus on what I care about. People wonder why some autistic kids don't like to socialise. This is why.
