I am pleased with the compassion, dedication, and hard work of the staff at Terrell. Every year I see progress in the direction that most benefits the students. Terrell does so much with so little. I would like to see more parent participation, but I realize the majority of families are duel income or working more than 1 job just to survive.

I am extremely happy with Terrell. The teachers truly care about the students and it shows. The schoolwork seems to be challenging enough to encourage the kids to push themselves, but not too much so that they get discouraged. The students and the community are very welcoming and while there may not be a lot of parent participation on campus, I feel like everyone gives the time that they can. And sometimes that time is provided at home which is just as important.The rating on this website might look negative, but there is so much to know about the testing that is given and unusual circumstances that led to this lower score. The principal is working very hard on getting kids up to where they need to be. The lower scores provided some additional state funding which has been put straight into the needed interventions, extra tutoring, and supplies that are needed to help the students. A school is so much more than a test score that comes out once a year. The overall experience of early education and growing up has been great for us and that speaks more to me than a rating.

I am literally having nightmares as a result of my experiences at Terrell Elementary.

My daughter has been at this school for the last 6 months after having to transfer from another. She has done insanely well. She was a strong student already but Terrell has made her even stronger. All my fears about moving her here were unfounded. Thank you Terrell!
