I have never been so pleased to have my student at a school where he is thriving and wants to go every day. We had horrible an experience at another school in Plant City. It was bad enough where I decided to home school my child. This year at Turkey Creek, it has been amazing; He loves his teacher and at no time feels vulnerable to anyone. The administration is on top of things and even met with me prior to the school year in order to find the best fit for my son. Nothing better than knowing your child is safe and happy while at school. Thank you, Turkey Creek!

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.
