Terry High School is very underrated! Yes, all schools have there ups and downs but I'mglad to be able to call THS my home. I feel very prepared to take on college and have created very close-knit bonds with my teachers. There are certain areas of improvement the school coulduse such as resources and school spirit, but the overall experience Terry High School provides is unlike most.

Terry High School is a good school. They make sure that everyone is safe and that there are no threats towards the school. The school administrators make sure that all the kids feel safe and loved at school, for example if anybody is getting bullied they put a stop to the situation immediately. The administrators also make sure that the kids follow then rules and that the student respect the dress code. They are also very strict about the respect towards teachers, they will not tolerate any disrespect. Overall Terry High School is a good high school to attend.
High school is a monumental part of everyone’s life. But eventually it must end, and ready or not, the rest of life impends. For some, college is the most logical step after getting a high school degree. But many students struggle with the transition.

Each year, a new wave of freshmen struggle to adapt to increased levels of schoolwork, loneliness and financial independence. It begs the question: did high school prepare us for this?

For the most part, high schools equip students with the necessary tools for post-secondary education. At many schools, AP and College Credit Plus courses are excellent opportunities to prepare high schoolers for the rigorous college courses that await them after graduation. These credit-eligible courses often help bear the financial burden of costly college classes. It’s much nicer on your wallet to pay $90 for an AP test than it is to pay upward of $1,000 or more for its equivalent at a university.
