I moved here a year ago from FBISD. I hated it. There's no diversity, a lack of motivation & willingness to join clubs, and the result is a minimal amount of clubs & extracurricular activities. Students at this campus, as well as George and Navarro, do not know their place, and a good 90% of students possess no discipline. Teachers I've had do not provide encouragement or support to students, which, in turn, make the students feel as if they shouldn't care about their schoolwork. If I could have a quarter for every single time I saw Dr. Wehring shake her head 'no', I'd be a millionaire. Her rules are over-the-top strict and unreasonable. $1 fine to wear a hat for a school spirit day? Come on. She's the reason why every time there's a "school spirit week" or occasion where the students can dress up and have fun, less then 25% of the entire school participates. I have attended two other high schools and they go above and beyond when it comes to showing school spirit. It's fun, and definitely something to look forward to whereas here, due to these restrictions, BF Terry high school is incredibly depressing. There is an immense deficiency of motivation from this school as a whole.

When I came to Terry I didnt see myself graduating, because I had been set back so many times. But the staff there welcomed me with open arms. My classes may be full of obnoxious students who don't shut up but my teachers don't give up. My english teacher Mrs. Ellis now that women is a saint. My junior year so far has been nuts!!!!!!!! But because of her ive been able to keep a level head. She's gone above and beyond her duty as a teacher. Hell all of my teachers have also gone above and beyond there duty. She has opened my eyes to my true strength. And pushed me to never give up. And I truly am in her debt. I can truly say I'm going to miss Terry cause it has truly felt like a second home.

There are very few staff that actually care about the students. The rest are focused on dress code . The students aren't focused on the future , and many of them are just taking it day by day. This school needs to do more then just help students get by, they need to help them prepare for the future.

I attended Terry all four years, and I have to say it wasn't all that bad. Really, the best department was by far the English department. Anyone who had to endure Mrs. Perales or Mrs. Smith can tell you that the preparation techniques they use for college level writing are verrry helpful. The rest was pretty good... math dept. maybe a little sub-standard though...

This school is going downhill. Most of the teachers just don't seem to care. The test results are horrible.

Even though the school district (LCISD) places too much emphasis on TAKS performance only, Ms. Wehring, the new principal, is committed to raising the performance of ALL students, including the upper level students. Extracurricular activities at T-High is awesome.

I'm not very satisfied with the entire school district. I don't think the teachers care enough. Also, the dropout rate is not exactly right. They don't allow a student to dropout even if they're 18 without first enrolling in another program first. This makes it a transfer rather than a dropout. So, be careful on a school's dropout rate.

Academic programs are fairly decent for the academic level. Honors and AP courses could be a little better but still offer enough decency to prepare students for higher education. Art program is awesome. Parents aren't very involved except in graduation and pro-grad events.

I went to Terry and I liked it very much. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it was very crowded my last year I was there. I felt very safe and my teachers were great. I had one teacher there who taught english and I feel that I had learned a lot from her. I had a great principal and the staff there was awesome. I graduated in 2000 and if I had to go back to school, it would be Terry.
