Turkey Foot Middle School Reviews
I absolutely love this school! So many great teachers, they are amazing! I never want to leave this school!
You can't believe everything you read. We also moved our children from Catholic School to Turkey Foot. Our kids excelled at both schools. Classes were challenging, and the opportunities they had at Turkey Foot far exceeded those at the Catholic School. There are so many more opportunities and extra cirricular activities they can become involved with, that they blossomed. Of course, there are those kids who you'd rather not have in your child's school, or the occasional unexceptional teacher - that's in every school. If your child applies themself and gets involved, they will do well. My kids wouldn't change a thing! Now on to Dixie. (Best thing is - it's free!)
Despite what you may have read, Turkey Foot is not a good school at all. If a child is a "problem child" at another school they send that child to Turkey Foot. The academics are terrible. I suspect those parents who withdraw their children from Catholic schools and send them to Turkey Foot are doing so because their child/children cannot handle the high academic standards required of students in the Catholic schools. In fact, I know some of these parents. Their children couldn't handle the academic challenges at the Catholic schools they were attending, but easily excelled at Turkey Foot.
We love turkeyfoot! Took both my kids out of catholic schools in the beginning of 6th grade, now my daughter is in 8th and my son is in 10th at dixie. Both of my kids excel academically and the catholic schools weren't offering them higher and challenging work, so we switched them.Now we are going to have a brand new school with great things to offer! Also, I like all the teachers my kids have had!
Turkey Foot has been really good for our kids. We took our twins out of Catholic School after the 5th grade and sent them to Turkey Foot. They have really thrived there. There are a lot more extra cirricular activities for my son (not an athlete), and my daughter has really enjoyed Art and Chorus classes. It was worth switching. The only negative comment I would have would be the communication. Sometimes I don't hear about things until it's too late. The other negative has been the actual school building, but they'll have a brand new one for next school year.
