Established in 1987, Turman Elementary was named after Robert L. Turman. Mr. Turman served a decade on the Harrison School District board and was dedicated to educating the children of Colorado Springs.


Our 2012 state assessment results were outstanding! Out of all of the schools in the district, Turman students were ranked first in growth in reading, tied for first in growth in writing, and second in growth in math. We are extremely proud of our teachers, staff, and students for their hard work and great achievement!

We are eager to see our 2013 state assessment growth rates when they are released this summer.
