Terrace Hills Middle School. I like the location of the school and the food that my children receive. I would like for this school to consider giving out home work for summer, winter, and spring break to help the children keep up with their studies.

i didn't even speak english when i attended this school, but with the help of my helpful teachers and classmates, i learned quickly. today i am almost a lawyer. the teachers, assistants, admin staff and security guys had all helped me one way or another. it saddens me i am no longer in touch with any of my fellow classmates from back then and it doesn't appear my old teachers are still there. anyone know Ms. Mark who taught ESL english? Mr. Johnson who taught math? Mr. Walker, the funny science teacher? Mr. Lambert who taught 8th grade science? Mr. Lane who taught history? there was also a young, tall, white, male teacher with glasses who taught English, i cannot even remember his name anymore, but he really showed patience in helping me. thank you very much, my first school in America

This school has many dedicated teachers, who offer their own free time to tutor, before and after school, as well as during nutrition and lunch. The administration is absolutely awesome. They work until late in the evenings and weekends. The counseling department meets with every student to discuss and plan high school, college and career. Parents are invited to these meetings too. I have seen students excel at this school, then return years later thanking the staff for all they have done to prepare them for society. Keep up the good job staff and families!

Very poor communication with teachers and administration. I have tried repeated to resolve unposted grade issues, unavailable tests missed due to absences, and finals based on a paragraph....etc. I gave up and moved my child straight out of the district!!!

THMS has fantastic opportunities and classes for both student who need extra help and students who are advanced. I found great classes, strict safety practices, and strong curriculum there. Parent involvement completely drops off from the elementary school with only 5 people regularly attending the PTSA meetings and doing all the support work. The principal was one of the 5.

Teachers here are abandoning the students in favor of wrangling better pay out of the district. My child has had more substitutes this year at this school than she has ever had in her entire academic career.

I think that this school is OK. Other than the fact that some of the teachers don't really care what the kids do in class or just can't control them and that the dress code is much to strict it is an OK place. But the class discipline needs to be better.

The teachers that my children have had, really care about the students, and do a fantastic job. I realize that money is an issue, but I would like to see more extracurricular activities. It seems as though the district or the state keep taking fun things out of the school, and focuses only on testing. Overall, my experience, as well as my kids' experience have been wonderful.

The school is over populated. Has teachers who don't teach, and looks more like a day jail for children.

The principal this last year needs to be replaced. The previous prinipal care about the kids. This one doesnt care. She pushes everything off on other people. The core system has to go. You have one bad teacher and the child is stuck with the teacher. I have been at the school for 3 years with 3 more to go. If I can find a better school my kids are gone.

I am not happy with this school. There is not enought extra curricular activities such at Track and field etc. Kids at this age need these things. Accademics are not very intense here either. We are not keeping kids interested in school and they will soon be sent to Colton High from here and that is really going to be a mess. An unhappy parent in Grand Terrace of a now 8th Grader We are exploring new avenues for this next school yr.Grand Terrace is failing us. and it will only get worse with these new housing tracks coming in. Loading up our schools and we don't even have a High School...go figure.

I am not happy with the curriculum that is offered. They do not do an adequte job on testing the children to find the right spot for them. Staffing if non effective and teachers are satified with just ok. Not one teacher has looked to excel either of my children to their utmost potential.

I wasn't thrilled with school in 2000-2001 son's 1st yr), but 8th grade was great and daughter's experience (2002-2004)has been very good also. Many teachers are excellent/current principal's leadership excellent. Difficult to get parent involvement though--commend faculty for continued effort. Some excellent teachers here!

Our schools need more parent involvement. I am pleased to see the parents that have responded on this Web site. I believe that our teachers and parents need to work together to help our children get the quality education they deserve. Keep up the good work. Mark Hoover.

The elementary schools in Grand Terrace are excellent. These same kids are going to this middle school and they have the same parents. The difference is the teachers. I've heard too many excuses and attitudes of 'can't' from these teachers. Maybe conditions are not ideal, but teachers need to adopt a positive attitude and focus on what can be done to improve learning. Individuals can make a difference.

I think teachers should be less strict with kids and I also think they should give a little more freedom to kids.
