This school has a very nice facility but the faculty is incompetent. I've never experienced my child attending a school ad bad as this one. I will be withdrawing her in the next month or so. If you can help it and you want a decent education for your child don't send them here. (LESS than 1 star)

I think that Terrell county High School is a very good school. The teachers are very careing and want you to learn but they can't force those who don't want to. I as a student their 2008-2009 Freshman love the school. The school is a very well put together school the extra-curricular activities are coming along good if only they had more to choose from. The softball team needs to work as a team and not indivuals. The coaches are trying their best but choose not to listen. All classes i have are very in-depth to me they don't just say what happened but why and what caused it. The Math teacher is very easy to get along with.The World history teacher Rocks and auctually cares about her students. The other teachers show that they care and really want us all to succeed
Poor performance in TMHS is not only low because of the unavailabillity of sports nor the teachers. There are a number of teachers at TMHS who care for the students there. One has to have the drive to succeed in school whether or not sports or other extracurricular activities are available. If any difference is to be made it has to start with oneself. No one can force a difference into a student's life they simplly have to want it. I was an honor grad of TMHS two years ago and the only sport I participated in was JH basketball and that was only 1 season! The teachers there have and will go over and beyond the boundaries to ensure the students there are fully equipped and prepared for the next level that awaits them which includes anything from the next grade level to the first job application. It's self will.
Poor performances in middle/high school in my community appear to have a direct correlation to the unavailability of wide-range easily accessible extracurricular activities in the school or county. A good caring teacher however can take the challenge and make a difference in how any child performs.
