Principal's Message

Greetings to our Students, Parents, and Guardians, 

My name is John C. West, and I am proud to serve as principal of Turner County Middle School.   I am a graduate of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, Georgia Southwestern State University, Walden University, and Albany State University. I have served in the Turner County district for sixteen years.  My leadership experiences include elementary school and middle school.   

As we embark on a new school year, I am filled with great enthusiasm and optimism for the opportunities ahead of us at Turner County Middle School. Our dedicated staff is committed to fostering an environment where every student can achieve their fullest potential, both academically and personally.

At Turner County Middle School, we believe that student achievement goes beyond grades and test scores. It encompasses personal growth, critical thinking skills, and a strong sense of community. Our educators are not only passionate about their subject areas, but also deeply invested in nurturing the social and emotional well-being of every student.

We understand that each child brings a unique set of talents, experiences, and challenges to our school community. Therefore, we are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive learning environment where all students feel valued and respected. Through a combination of rigorous academics, enriching extracurricular activities, and targeted support services, we aim to empower our students to become confident, compassionate, and resilient individuals.

As principal, I am dedicated to fostering open communication and collaboration among students, parents, and staff. Together, we can ensure that every child receives the guidance and encouragement they need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

I look forward to partnering with you throughout the school year to celebrate achievements, address challenges, and create memorable experiences for our students. With your support, I am confident that we will continue to uphold our commitment to excellence and student success at Turner County Middle School. 


John C. West
