    "I am a graduate of Turner County High School. I feel that the school is not providing the children of Ashburn a solid base to go on after High School. There is a povertyl problem in this area but that should not be an issue on the educatin of the children. People have failed to touch on one of the biggest issues in this area when it comes to educationand anything else and that is the seperation of the community. Someone mentioned about the Athlethic program, that is really a shallow statement. It doe not matter how well the school's athlethic teams are doing if the student are not being prepared for life after High School. The community as a whole should come together and put the kids education in the forefront. There are teachers who genuinely care but there are others who do not. I went on after High school to do things that a few people from Ashburn have done but if I reall look bck it is not because og the great educational background I received from y high school. I am aware that there are and will always be kids that you can not reach, but the pupose of teaching is to create the potential for improvement in the life of the one being taught and that means all kids!"

    "I graduated from Turner County in 1978. My oldest daughter graduated in 1993. I have a grandson in 1st grade at Turner who will graduate in 2020. Turner not only offers the some of the highest academic standards in the state but also has the best athletic program. Its high standards of leadership in a community who entirely supports there school by giving them the best opportunities that can be offered. I am proud to be a Turner alumni and will continue to offer my support in any way possible. Thank you for considering Turner County High School. They are well deserved."

    "For size, Turner is an efficient school that offers a solid education. Its success is hampered because of the poverty level and general low economics of the area. In general the school has a core of solid educators and a strong administrative team."

    "I am a former student and i can't blame the school entirely, because there are some teachers that really care. I learned that I was not ready for college when I attended, i think mainly because i was not in college prep classes, but I was not advised to do so because in middle school I received mediocre grades I was advised to vocational, but I've found that if lead in the right direction I would have been better off. I learned that in college when i was taught something, i retained it easily, and didn't have any problems from then on. At turner co, because they didn't consider me one of the smart kids or gifted kids, I felt I was deprived of i guess I can say the harder classes. Advise your kids to push themselves and if they advise them to do one thing go 1 step higher."

    "I am a former student and as i know from personal experience and from experiences with relatives turner county high does not prepare there students for college. Most have to take remedial classes to improve things they should have learned in high school and wasn't taught. If you look at how this schools test results compare to state average it falls bellow average in every area that says it all."
