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!

Temple High - I think the high school is doing amazing!! Temple has outstanding programs IB/AP, band, and theatre are some of the best in the state. Your always going to have some issues with a large school same as in any town. Temple High and TISD has done a complete turn around and are doing GREAT things. Most complaints that I have seen on these ratings things are usually from teachers who don't like change and frankly 10-20 years ago Temple was in a bad place. Change isn't always accepted but was obviously needed (not to mention that the STATE places most of the guidelines teachers complain about the district has to follow them and make them happen like it or not) and looks like it weeded out some of the ones that were possibly holding some of the positive improvements back. All I know is Temple is a great school, with great leadership (who relates to the kids and teachers), full of extremely talented kids academically, artistically, musically and athletically you name it Temple has it and can help them succeed. Temple needed NEW, part of what was holding it back was OLD Temple . I choose for my son to go to Temple because of the positive things happening that will benefit

My school is all of Temple Schools. All of my family has had great experiences

As a student, my real rating is 3.5. At T-high, I find myself disappointed with mainstream classes. I have problems with no specific teachers or students, but plenty mainstream kids lack discipline, which is not because of the school, but I've noticed some staff don't try to help them. There's a lot of trouble, and a lot kids that either don't get punished when they ought to, or get punished when they weren't in the wrong. I wish money and skill was put out more evenly between classes, food, equipment and what not, and the staff treated each other, students, and the school itself better. The standard of education is alright at the moment, but scores and graduation seem to be decreasing from what I've seen. I'm not unhappy with the school, I enjoy my classes, but I hope that the problems it has will be fixed.

I have taught here for 20 years but I cant wait to leave. The administration and principal are very out of touch with the needs of the teachers and students. They have made it miserable to teach here. Teachers are leaving in droves and the education of the students is suffering.

I'm glad my kids go to Temple High. The great thing about Temple is is diversity. My kids have gone to school with kids of totally different backgrounds than our's and they are richer for it. Temple offers a huge variety of classes, programs and ways for kids to get involved.

I've taught at Temple High for 24 years. I would not have stayed here if I didn't love it! At Temple, we offer so many programs for students to get involved in. We have academic programs such as IB, AP & dual credit for those who need challenging. We have A+ & Grand Central station for the kids who need some extra help in their classes. We also have outstanding Fine Arts programs and sports teams. I'm so proud of our students and continue to be excited to be part of a great teaching staff.

While the high school itself is older the district has done a great job in renovations. Temple high school does provide a superior education!!

Temple High School is not the place to educate your child. The district is administration heavy and ignorant of the needs of students in the classroom. Teachers are not treated well and the administration is always trying to figure out ways to take away benefits. If you are looking for a job as an assistant superintendent you are coming to the right place. If you want a good education for your child, go somewhere else.
