I highly recommend this school. My child has been going to turning point since she was 3 and now she is 8 going into 3rd grade. The teachers are amazing they don't treat their students as students they treat them as their own child. The staff is also great on manners making your child learn them and keep them!

I went here for the 1st time and the secretary is very friendly. The Principal is the one that showed me the 1st grade classroom, church, office , etc ....and meet the 1st grade teacher. Very nice people and school. So I decided to go ahead and register my daughter. Awesome experience. I definitely recommend! :)

I recommend this school because the learning environment is awesome!!! The teachers are in their purpose and it shows. Both of my kids love attending school and gives me a hard time if I pick them up early. Good schools are hard to find so if you are looking fantastic teachers, friendly staff and awesome learning environment I recommend you call them. Sincerely Very Satisfied parent
