Open Quote Terrell High School and Terrell schools have had a negative image for the past 15 years or longer. High teacher turnover, low teacher morale, issues, declining test score averages and parents kept in the dark regarding drugs, guns in campus. The day I moved my child out of terrell schools was the day my child EXCELLED! Close Quote

There are a number of great programs for students from the Career and Technology to the State of Art Performing Arts Center. Advanced Programs in academics are top of the line. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
