Turners Fall High School Reviews

Turners has a lot of good programs in it, from an outstanding Student Council to State Champion sports teams. As a student there, I loved most things about the school, mostly the academics. Turners offers very tough, accelerated course for students with more academically advanced minds, and they also offer courses that are not as hard for students looking for something easier. The teachers in the school have your best interest at heart, and they strive to see the students succeed. However, administration is a different story. If someone were to bring up a problem in the school to administration, they would say that they'll take care of it and then they will not even think about for at least a couple weeks, if not longer. The janitorial staff is nice, and they're polite, most of the time but looking around at the different facilities in the school; bathrooms, pool, cafeteria, etc, it does not seem like they put a whole lot of effort into their jobs.

I like how small the school is and how close knit the community is. last year we had to change our mascot, the indians, because people found it offensive but the students strongly disagreed. we thought we were honoring the native americans and we fought to keep it. we conducted a walk out and walked to the elementary school where the administration was. we let our voices be heard and stated our opinions. the administration basically said that it doesn’t matter what we think because the were already taking it away. now we do not have a mascot because no one has made a new one. i think that tfhs is very slow at getting things done. i am very disappointed to be graduating without a mascot, but at heart i am still graduating an indian!
The guidance counselors are amazing and super nice! I like how it's a small school and everyone knows each other. Also, sports teams are really nice and are like families.
