Turrill Year-Round Elementary School utilizes a research-based, balanced calendar approach to teaching students and operating an early fives through fifth grade elementary school. Students and staff at Turrill reduce the traditional summer vacation by attending school in the month of August. The month spent in August is then spread out during the school year with additional breaks from the traditional classroom experience. The extra weeks off during the school year are filled with volunteer intersession weeks created around a theme. Students and staff are in school the same number of days as traditional schools. The title "year-round" comes from the classification the state uses due to the start date being prior to Labor Day.
