With a constant change in administrative officials, I found it very difficult to have a consistent 4 years at Terrell, in terms of ever-changing rules and faces. These administrative officials did not establish many relationships with students, as they were more concerned about overall social appearances to keep their job. With that being said, many of my teachers truly cared about each one of their students and created lasting relationships. I still can call upon any of my old high school teachers if I ever need any help in my college courses, and they are more than happy to answer.

This is my first year at Terrell High School as a Junior. It has been great so far, their pep rallies are amazing and I love the support the parents show. Terrell HS is very big on sports that we have a pep rally for every home game which is every 2 weeks. The academic part is also amazing because if you don't understand something they will make sure you stay for tutorials to get you the help you need. I also love how diverse it is, Terrell HS celebrates anything culture related. For example, Hispanic Heritage Month, their is Hispanic culture all over the school and teachers actually take time out of their lesson to talk about this culture. So I HIGHLY recommend coming to Terrell High School if you are interested in not being judged and being who you want to be to make this world a better place.
Terrell High School is a school like no other. Incomparable to others and dissimilar to all. There is a special teacher student bond that is felt and experienced emanating through the halls. Teachers here do their best to ensure the education and future of their students. There is a unique home like vibe that anyone can feel as soon as they walk through the double doors, a sense of belonging. Terrell High School has its own history. Some notable alumni include celebrities such as Jamie Foxx and Brice McCain. Terrell High School is located in a small town from Texas, but the big dreams of the students make up for the size of the city. It is not only home to me but to many students as well, trying their best to become who they want to be and doing exactly what it is they dream of accomplishing their dreams.
