Principal's Corner

  • Mrs. Bernice Martin, Principal


    Greetings Students and Parents,

    I am honored to serve as your principal .  Our goal at Turner County Middle School/ACE Academy is to provide a quality education to all students by fostering an environment conducive to teaching and learning.   We plan to create opportunities for students that will allow them to reach their fullest potential.  There will be collaborations with community stakeholders in joint efforts to fully acclimate students to their community and to provide them with learning experiences that will leave a positive impact on their learning and their lives.

    Our main purpose is teaching and learning using researched-based strategies. We will enhance our efforts by providing rigorous instructions along with remedial support when warranted.  We encourage you to be actively involved in helping to ensure that students are college and career ready upon graduating.  Your support is greatly needed and appreciated.  

    You are also encouraged to keep abreast of school activities by visiting our website and visiting the school.  We urge you to attend our school functions such as athletic events, honor programs, open house and musicals.  Our students are very proud to see you and all community stakeholders at our school and events showing support for their efforts.


    I want to truly express my philosophy that "students are the most valuable asset in the school and their success is our top priority."  


    My belief is that if students think they can, they will.  If we think they can, they will.  So, please help us by reinforcing the importance of education and by latching on to and communicating our motto:

     "Graduation is our Motivation!"

    Thank You,


    Mrs. Bernice J. Martin, Principal
