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.

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. I love this school but it needs some work. Give the kids more chances to do what they love.
