Terrell schools graduate Oscar winners, Olympic athletes, and world-class professionals.
Established in 1883, the Terrell Independent School District (TISD) has a proud history of providing quality education to students. Our goal is to provide a positive environment for every child to be safe, to be welcomed, and to enrich their unique abilities. We focus on developing the whole child by teaching character traits that will benefit them throughout their life such as integrity, fairness, perseverance, citizenship, trustworthiness, respect, positive attitudes, and school pride. Our students are our priority, and we will help them reach and exceed their academic potential. It is our belief that the future of our community, state, and nation hinges on the quality of the students being educated by our accredited school system.
With an enrollment of more than 4,200 students, TISD has four elementary schools, one middle school, one high school and the Gifted and Talented Academy. Recently, TISD has received six Academic Achievement Distinctions in three of our schools from the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
TISD, in partnership with Trinity Valley Community College (TVCC), offers free Dual Credit college courses for high school students. TISD covers the cost of tuition, fees, books and transportation to and from TVCC for qualified students. Students can earn college credits up to an associate degree from TVCC when they graduate from high school. Additionally, TISD offers a wide range of Career and Technical Education courses to prepare students for college and careers.
The mission of the Terrell Independent School District, a community of unique, diverse people, is to provide an exceptional learning experience in a safe, nurturing environment, challenging our students to achieve academic excellence and to be responsible, productive, and ethical members of a changing society.
