School Reviews

  • Recommended May 24, 2010 - If you have a child with an IEP, you better scream real loud to be sure it is followed. As a parent, don't wait for them to email or call you back, they aren't very good at that. Administration does not keep their word. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - turkey creek is a very nice school, but it needs more oppurtunities. I am a student here. The imviroment around this school is okay, but not the best.
