"I request to see the Pinciple over 10 times never had a meeting with him. I was told by the front office staff that he is always off campus in meetings. The city has one high school it's hard to believe that he has that much work off campus. I have seen videos of students fighting in the bathrooms when I asked my son how this happens he said every one agrees to not make noise during the fight teachers don't check bathrooms. Most of the staff sends their kids to Belton ISD. Temple high has a thrift problem especially in the locker rooms. phones, head phones and shoes get stolen everyday any thing of value can get stolen. It's sad to say the a small town with one high school can not produce a great learning environment. The upper middle class and rich just move over to the next small town that is 20 mins away."
"We have two children at Temple high, and we are very pleased with the offering of a variety of courses, great teachers who are happy and willing to help the students before or after school, and a very diverse peer group. Many opportunities to find something that interested them; chorus, theater, clubs, sports, etc."
"This is my daughter's second year. The counselors are responsive if you need assistance. It's a 5A school, which means it's large, diverse, and full of opportunities if you're looking (fine arts, IB, athletics, career tech, languages, etc.). As with any public high, there are some incidences, but it's really better than a lot of school this size. Tons of spirit and a great place for a teenager to grow up."
"This school is NOT a good school for children taking classes other than Pre-ap, ap, and Ib, the "regular" classes are not very easy to concentrate because the Teachers don't teach, they give us (students) packets and say "figure it out." Now how many kids do you really think are going to acctually do the work rather than just copy someone else for the grade? About 10-15% of us (students) will acutally do the work but out of that 10-15% maybe 5% will understand it and be able to do it again. Then after te teachers not teaching us (students) they expect we know how to do it perfectly. Here's a situation for you, I was sitting in class and I look up to see another student selling "weed" in class, the teacher was aware of this and did nothing about it, but yet when someone turns around to ask for a piece of paper he writes them up faster than I've ever seen. Now tell me, do you really want your child going here? If I was a parent, which is surprising to many people in this community that a teenaged girl isn't pregnant or already has a child, I wild find a different school. Maybe Belton High School, or Belton New Tech. I've heard of those to be very pristine schools."
"This is a great school of choice for students seeking preparation for college. The AP/IB programs at the school are top notch, not to mention the only school in central Texas to offer it!"
