I have been attending TERRA Environmental Research Institute for the past four years. I can honestly say i have enjoyed my time at TERRA. Not only do the teachers push you to excel in all your classes they prepare us for college making our transition easier for when we graduate. Many students at terra have high career goals and the teacher try to make them possible in every way. TERRA is not only an academic school we also have many clubs, sports, and activities for all kinds of students. I am enrolled in the Band program. It is a great program and our Band Director is amazing. Hehas polished the band program in the last two years. TERRA tries their best to incorporate Science, Technology, English, Arts, and Math throughout every single course you take. TERRA is a magnet school with three academies. I am in the biomedical academy and it has pushed me one step closer to my career goal of being a Nurse Practitioner (ARNP). I am proud to call myself a TERRA student. Go Wolves!

Terra is an amazing school! It is extremely clean and the whole staff is very polite and helpful. The administrators are very strict with enforcing the rules and dress code to ensure that everyone is focused on doing there best in school. The teachers are all intelligent and work hard to give every student what they need to have a bright future ahead of them. My only regret is that some student feel a lot of pressure to go into very difficult and stressful classes to get ahead of other in college, but don’t know how to cope with the stress.
Terra is a school where every class is an honors class, The graduation requirements include the completion of 100 community service hours, and a student can be expelled for having a grade below average. This school is very competitive. There are clubs that compete in multiple competitions throughout the year in engineering, robotics, environmental science, and biomedical science. When applying to go terra, there are 3 academies, a student must choose one, which will become one of his mandatory classes every year. The academies are Engineering, Environmental, and Biomedical. There are benefits to joining these ranging from gaining general knowledge of the field pertaining to the academy, or there are more interesting opportunities, such as becoming certified in a engineering program, or doing volunteer work at a hospital or farm.
