Terryville High School is quite small, making it easy to connect with all of the faculty and other students. Terryville is very sport oriented so the students go above and beyond to express their school spirit. The Career Center offers excellent help to juniors and seniors regarding college decisions and academic guidance. This school is like it's own little community!

Terryville High School is composed of approximately 500 students from grades 9-12. The school offers six challenging AP courses, one ECE course, and nineteen honors courses, however, student's would benefit from a wider selection of these college-level classes. The most discerning characteristic of Terryville High School is the lack of school spirit and participation. Staff, as well as students, do not make the effort to organize events to encourage student bonding. Events that are held through the school, such as Homecoming, end up with terrible turnouts. Another issue with the school is the lack of cleanliness in the cafeteria after lunch. The stench and grotesque sight of leftover lunch lasting up to several hours before being cleaned. Despite, all of this, Terryville High School's AP courses have matured me into a student capable of excelling in college. I recommend taking these courses in order to prepare yourself for a college classroom environment
Much of the teaching methodology is flimsy, but otherwise has a good environment. There is a distinct lack of energy among students when it comes to the learning experience at Terryville High, one which only a few teachers have figured out how to remove.
