I think Terronez is a horrible school. The current principal is leaving I wonder why! My daughter was a 3.0 student but that all changed when she went to Terronez. Her grades dropped. She was in the JDA program and they said if her grades dropped they would put her in tutoring but they didn't. The staff including the principal don't return phone calls. The office staff would always make mistakes on my daughter's attendance record. They would say that I didn't call in when I did, and they would mark her absent when she was on a field trip,and then call me to report her absence. Some questionable incidents have taken place in the classroom. My daughter has seen more fights at that school than I have in my 33 yrs. of life. Kids are also smoking weed on campus. I absolutely regret sending my daughter to that school. In my opinion the only good thing about Terronez is the Athletic Dept. Melissa Benabides(disappointed parent)

Teacher quality: there are teachers there who genuinely care and work hard, zero hw came home, save one class. Parent involvement? Some parents genuinely care. Wyldlife makes a difference.

I have been tremendously disappointed with the administration of this school and have reached out to other schools to ask questions. Most schools seem to have much more support from families in comparasion to Terronez. It is unfortunate that much of the staff and students do not have respect for the principal. I think his intentions are good but his professionalism lacks much. This school needs a lot of extra attention because of the student population it serves. However, it think more attention is needed at the leadership level. The School Site Council has also been discouraging to me in that most of it is reporting to parents and their is little or no opportunity for parents to give input. Most agenda items are presented in a manner that is difficult for parents to question.

Many programs have had to be cut due to lack of funding. Academic programs are not seen as a high priority in my opinion, whereas sports seem to take precedence. Leadership needs to be more organized giving teachers adequete time to preprare and discipline is not always followed through.

My oldest daughter has been attending Terronez for 3 years now and my youngest for 1 year and I am very happy with the education the have received there. The principal and staff are so great; they not only care about the student s academic life, but their home life as well. I am so proud that my daughter had the opportunity to meet such great people. I do believe that parents need to get more involved with the school, so that all the work is not put completely on the staff, they are wonderful, but they can t do it all on their own. We have to step up and get involved with our school, community and our children's education.
