    "I'm a new teacher at TTCS and I think the environment is very good for children. The principal cares about to have excellent students, trying to get good curriculum to help them to grow everyday. I think TTCS is the best school in Santa Fe."

    "This school did not provide my son with the emotional support he needed. They exclude kids from field trips using an arbitrary (and teacher-dependent) behavioral points system. It is not in the least bit motivational to the children who need the most motivation. Further, their gifted teacher is rigid and does not provide a truly rich and encouraging atmosphere for gifted kids - especially those who are dealing with common traits of giftedness: asynchronous development, oversensitivities, overexcitabilities, non-linear thought patterns. She does not understand the meaning of giftedness and is only interested in kids who excel academically. She does not provide a space for them to discover the meaning of their giftedness and celebrate their true gifts. The kids are pretty nice. The nurse is wonderfully supportive and understands sensitive boys. The Principal is an egomaniac."

    "I have been a guest speaker on space and astrophysics at Turquoise Trail Charter School for several years. There has always been an environment where the students are encouraged to probe into complex topics. Some of the most advanced question that I have had came from Turquoise Trail. The fact that the students at the 5th and 6th grade level were able to comprehend some of the complex astrophysical concepts is a testimony to the excellence of this school."

    "I am currently a teacher at TTCS and couldn't imagine myself teaching anywhere else. I love that we use an effective and balanced curriculum and that our students get to go to art, P.E., library and music every week. I also think that TTCS is great at involving parents and the community into our school. There are annual events, such as the Fun Run, Halloween Carnival and Culture Fair that continue to inspire and motivate our local families and the community. Families would be hard pressed to find a group of more caring and proficient professionals to teach their children. Please visit our website at www.turquoisetrailcharterschool.org."
