    Terry High School is a great place for a student to grow mentally academically and spiritually. I feel that this is one of the premiere schools in the state because of their superior leadership by their principal and the consistentl high moral of the teachers that execute the plans. This system is truely one that should implemented into other shools as they continue their strive for excellence.
