At Turner High School, I'm glad to come into class and get started on my work. Many of us strive to be an honor student with good grades. There are sessions after school to help us pass our class or find some time to work on things. We have a lot of after school activities. Turner High School students are able to balance their life out with school and other activities. I know many who juggle school, sports, clubs, and a job. Though they are not recognized by the school, they are recognized by their peers. Our counselors make sure to reach out to us and, working with our college advisor, they make sure to let us know about college and scholarship information. We get a email about it every week. Our Fine Arts department is outstanding. Our sports teams are also very outstanding.

My experience at Turner High School was pretty good overall. Im currently a freshman at Turner High. Most of the teachers are always willing to help and explain things to you if you don't understand it. They offer study halls after schools and are very open about talking about work and grades. One thing I like about Turner is the diversity. There is an abundance of cultures, races, and ethnicity. Another thing I like about it is the teachers expect you to do your work on time, and they try not to tolerate bad behavior. Even if you get in trouble a lot, or are known not to do your work, they still expect the same as they would of everyone. One thing I would change is the behavior problems. There is a lot of trouble with kids at school, and some students don't seem to care about school or their grades.
My experience in turner high school has been very good, it's my second year in turner high school as a sophomore. The teacher there are really good they truly want you to succeed and be a better student. They stay after school to help you with your work, essays, test and any other classes you might need help in. They try the best to encourage you to keep going even when it seems like a lot, they push you but only for the betterment of yourself. The school is constantly trying to fun raise to give us the best. they are working right now on updating many old schools and getting us new laptops to work with. They do a lot of things right and i don't see much that they should change except put a little more money into there fine arts, that all i can think of.
