    "There was a LOT f diversity which was great. Looking back, a lot of professors were not just white and at least half of the students seemed to be of an ethnicity that wasn't just white."

    "Although I had a handful of teachers that didn't seem to care or enjoy teaching as much, most were extremely caring and attentive and put in extra effort to help students succeed. I loved the teachers at Terra Nova while I was there. I had some really wonderful teachers."

    "There were a few very lackluster teachers who could've done better jobs but there were also a handful of very amazing teachers who cared a lot about the students. My favorite teachers were Mr. Hill for English, Mr. Carothers for Ceramics, Mr. Chu for AP U.S. History, Mr. Blasingame for Trigonometry, Mrs. Ramos for Physics and Mrs. Columbo for Leadership."

    "This school had something to offer everyone from band kids to football player, and thespians. We have clubs for kids still trting to figure out sexuality and identity, and mock trail. I came into this school as a scared, deptessed, and anxious new freshman, who thought that being involved in the community was reserved for the elite of high school. I couldn't have been more wrong about my school, as they soon showed me. Right away my biology teacher blew me away with care and dedication to not only the top students, but the struggling kids as well. She took me under her wing and helped me grow into this whole high school business comfortably. My P.E. Coach begged me to try out for the track team and I found a new passion in hurdling."

    "I'm going to miss Terra Nova. It was my school. I never considered any other high school. I remember on my first day i was overwhelmed and dropped my books all over the hall. A security guard came over and helped my pick my books up and walked me to class. The students became my everyday life, my friends, my equals, and my community. I went from a shy person to more outgoing. I made some of my dearest friends there. I remember dance class and how it was always the best time of day to just relax and let loose. I wouldn't choose a different school because without the Terra Nova community I wouldn't be the person I am today."
