As Principal of Turning Point High School, I am excited to serve as leader of an awesome group of dedicated staff members, who strive to provide a quality education for all students.  Thank you for visiting our website.  Here are some of the goals that we work toward daily:

  • Serve as positive role models for our students
  • Help each student realize their full academic potential
  • Address the social/behavioral needs of our students
  • Provide counseling support if needed or desired
  • Encourage each student to graduate from High School
  • Provide daily social skills in order to assist students in making good decisions

As a District Alternative Education Program, our students are all referred to us for violation of the Student Code of Conduct.  As the Principal, my personal goal is to let each of my students know that they may have made a bad decision, but that they are not bad kids.


TPHS THANKS Connect Church, Pastor Jay McFadden and staff for their Community Partnership!  Connect Church has provided TPHS staff and student T-shirts as well as many breakfast/lunches for staff meetings throughout the year!  We appreciate your generosity!  


TPHS will provide a safe and positive environment which will empower all students to succeed academically.  The teachers and staff will implement interventions that motivate and create positive changes that help all students become respectful, responsible citizens within their communities.
