Turtleback Elementary School Reviews
I love the school & the staff as its just another home. The staff is very friendly & co-operative. My son studies there & we wish to put our daughter too in the same school when she turns 5. We would never leave this school even if given another better opportunity by anyone as this is the best!! Turtleback rocks!!
Great school academically and socially. The staff is super friendly and the children love Turtleback school. We had an excellent teacher who encouraged my son to socialize with the other children. Being an only child he was very shy but has blossomed so much. The principal is very involved with the children and parents. This school is a no bullying school, my son feels safe and loves going to school. He was a kindergartener last year by the end of the school year he was reading 2nd grade level.
Caring teachers, principal and staff. Successful at challenging and supporting kids academically and socially. My kids have attended other schools, but never one that is this friendly. We don't ever want to leave.
Excellent test scores, caring teachers, involved principal, welcoming culture. I love Turtleback!!
AN EXCELLENT SCHOOL,CAN'T ASK FOR ANY BETTER!
