School Reviews

Turning Point School is a happy place. 7 years into our TP experience and my children have never said that they don''t want to go to school. The teachers are both nurturing and firm. The community is diverse and, for the most part, down to earth. The children who graduate from TP are confident, well spoken and look you in the eyes when they speak to you. They learn respect and compassion and I look forward to the years we have remaining there.
