Excellent elementary school with a "small town" feel. Small classroom sizes, attentive and caring staff ... great experience so far. Looking forward to many years with our children at this school. Mrs Schaefer is a fantastic kindergarten teacher.
The student body of Terrace is pulled mostly from the less troubled areas of Des Plaines. Kids who attend there as a whole come from good families with the intention of learning. My child will be finishing there this year. It's been a great 6 year experience. We are happy to have her grow up with down to earth kids, who are mostly well behaved, not bratty, and without any bullying issues. Kudos to Mr. Becker for making a big difference and a very positive influence in this school.
My daughter went to this school for 2 years and finally we moved out of the district. The parents are very involved but the Principal was terrible. He allowed a teacher to refuse to accomodate my daughter's learning disability. There also aren't many extraciricular activities.
