This school is lacking in many areas that is well understandable- There are a lot of negatives that I could dwell on- This school is made for resilient children, children who will change the system, and it is harsh. Carol is right, Foster is an amazing school and if you can get the means to have your children sent there well done. I'll tell you what we need at Terry.Students with a resilient, undying, and selfless character Praying parents and staff Somebody who's willing to stand up and break the old Student with a big mouth who are willing to fight for what is right Somebody who just wants a different experience Terry isn't made for the weak...students who are their own personalities and students with great integrity are the ones we need at Terry. Send ''em over we're to change culture.

If you desire a high quality education that is way above the average--send your child to Foster High School. If you want your student to have a step up above everyone else, --send your child to Foster High School. If you want a better than average student, and one that excel==send your child to Foster High School. Just pray that Principal Tomas is still Principal at Foster
