About The School

Our Mission, Vision, and Goals


The mission of the Douglas County School System (i.e. Turner Middle School) is to provide a quality education for all students in a safe, supportive environment.

Our vision is to build a community of lifelong learners that become responsible individuals, independent thinkers, and productive citizens.


  • To improve community engagement and involvement in (school) district initiatives and decision making.
  • To enhance and improve (school) district communication strategies and practices.
  • To provide a challenging, comprehensive instructional and curricular program for all learners.


We believe that we must...

  • Understand how children and adults learn and continue learning.
  • Build communities of lifelong learners.
  • Cultivate the leadership potential of every employee, student, and parent in our school system.
  • Be creative energetic visionaries who respond quickly to current and evolving issues.
  • Meet the needs of our stakeholders (students, parents, employees and community).
  • Maintain efficient and effective administrative processes for instruction, operations, human resources and sound fiscal management.
