Welcome Back to School!

          Turner Middle School has seen student achievement gains over the course of three consecutive years! We have been able to accomplish our student achievement goals by setting high expectations for our students, teachers, administrators and support staff. At Turner Middle School, our slogan is, “The Best Middle School in Georgia.” We strive relentlessly to achieve this goal by incorporating new and innovative programs each year and by employing personnel that care about and have a true passion for our community.

          Some of our initiatives include: our STEM program, which is the only middle school program in the county to date; our dual language program, which will be the only middle school program in the state beginning in 2014; our preparatory programs for I.B. (International Baccalaureate Program) currently offered at Douglas County High School. We also offer strong musical programs, outstanding foreign language programs in Spanish and French, and various clubs for our students to express themselves in a manner consistent with their innate talents.

          Students attending Turner Middle School have two responsibilities. Their first responsibility is to make As and Bs in all of their scheduled classes. Their second responsibility is to act appropriately, displaying an attitude conducive to a safe, orderly learning environment. Our middle school students do a fantastic job living up to these basic responsibilities and they are consistently challenged to do better each day. The faculty at Turner Middle School is the best. They give 100% effort, as expected, and go beyond the average call of duty to make Turner Middle School great.

          Come see for yourself! Turner Middle School is a rising star destined to display continual excellence in education. Our students and staff enjoy a diverse mix of people from around the world. We work together to bring out the best in each other and we hold ourselves to a high level of accountability. We have come a long way over the course of two years together, and as Turner’s “new” principal, I will not accept anything less. Our children deserve the best we have to offer to ensure their future.
