Terrell ISD

Increasing Student Achievement in All Areas 

Established in 1883, the Terrell Independent School District (TISD) has a proud history of providing quality education to all students. Our goal is to create 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. 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 4,600 students, TISD has a Gifted and Talented Academy, an early childhood campus, three kindergarten through fifth grade elementary schools, one sixth through eighth grade middle school, and one high school serving students in ninth through twelfth grades. Recently, Terrell High School received two Academic Achievement Distinctions from the Texas Education Agency (TEA). In May 2018, TISD opened a state-of-the-art facility called the Excellence Center for Enhanced Learning (ExCEL). ExCEL is an 89,000 square foot facility that includes an indoor soccer field, basketball and volleyball courts, classrooms, a bistro, an indoor walking track, and a workout facility for senior citizens and TISD staff. The purpose of ExCEL is to provide high-quality opportunities for our youth to enhance their education, athletic skills, character, and their lives.

 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 TISD Excellence Foundation, a non-profit organization, promotes and funds innovative teaching programs, provides resources for creative strategies, and recognizes and rewards staff accomplishments. The Excellence Foundation has awarded more than $1,100,000 in grants since its inception.
