Terry Sanford High Ratings & Reviews

July 29, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Our overall experience has been a good one. We have had a few ups and downs. We have enjoyed most of the teachers, staff and the school environment as a whole. My kids have found success when they searched for it and have always had teachers who encouraged them to be their best. Mr Haggerty, counselors and staff have also encouraged success.

I went to multiple high schools in Cumberland County and I now work within the system, and it's clear that Terry Sanford hasn't lived up to its image in years. It is still a much better environment than 71st and Westover High School, and it performs better than Douglas Byrd despite sharing similar characteristics. Outside of those 3 schools, every school in the county is a better choice for your son or daughter... Including EE Smith and South View. The leadership at Terry Sanford is poor and corrupt, and the experience for students gets worse every year as teachers and administrators are held to no consequence. In 2016-2017 Terry Sanford was outperformed by every school in the county except for the Ramsey Street alternative school (Fayetteville observer). This year was not much of an improvement. You can make your own assessment, but the data produced by CCS shows: 1) good schools - Jack Britt, Cape Fear, Gray's Creek, Massey Hill 2) Average/Mixed performance schools- South View, EE Smith, Pine Forest. 3) schools in transition- Terry Sanford (also at times Pine Forest and South View), Byrd on a good year. 4) drop out factories- Byrd, Westover, 71st.

"Altogether, Terry Sanford High School should be renamed ""Diet Douglas Byrd"". They are both the city's oldest and most historical schools, and for decades they outperformed not only Cumberland County Schools but most schools in the state. Then the mid 2000's hit, followed by zoning corrections. Disciplinary issues, then academic issues, and comprehensive demographic adjustments. Byrd almost entirely collapsed as an institution and is unlikely to recover, and Terry Sanford has severely declined. For college readiness, equity, test scores, graduation, and low income students Terry Sanford used to rank in the top 3 for the county every year. Now they are in the bottom quartile. Drop out rate for low income students is almost 30%, and suspension rates for minorities are almost at 30%.. and 845 out of 1270 of our students are minorities. 430 students are white, and they make up almost the entire global studies, honors, and AP program. They are also the overwhelming majority of our graduates who go to college. Discipline and control are always a problem here, I'm not in global studies and the students regular classes act aggressive. The concourse, cafeteria, and main hallway are regular places for trouble and even the accelerated program students have to share this space. Outside of a few teachers, I have not had to work at all to make good grades and they have not been helpful when I've been concerned about learning. That said I have had teachers who really care and helped me grow as a student and person. The school smells bad and when something breaks it takes forever to get fixed. My guidance counselor has spent almost no time with me preparing me for college even though I have good grades and intend on going.Contrasting, there are a few things which has kept our school from becoming the next Douglas Byrd High. 1- it is in a wealthy neighborhood and local property taxes in NC fund schools. 2- any of the extra curricular programs are a great escape for serious students and they are generally separated from the rest of the school in more focused environments. 3- the tradition of it being ""Fayetteville High School"" first keeps a lot of motivated people coming back. Whether it's a rapper, basketball player, or inspirational teacher- this school does have a spirit which keeps it functioning. Needs improvement"

"I have had a good time here so far because of the decisions I have made, but this school is confused about it's identity. Publically it tries to present itself as J.B. High, but in reality the only thing keeping it from becoming the next D. Byrd is the funding from Haymount. Pros: location, global studies is a superior program, JROTC is great, we are dominate at sports, incredible history. The diverse nature of the school is enriching and serves as a great networking tool. Cons: (for regular students) disruptive, hostile atmosphere. It has not met AYP in ten years. College readiness is among bottom half in CCS. The rezoning of the school district has caused overcrowding and social friction (about 700 students now go to TSHS that used to be zoned to Smith, Westover, Byrd; none of them get along). Students whose families bought in nice neighborhoods are now zoned to worse schools (not the schools fault but the counties). One's own research of CCS records will show the numerous faults of this school, and the ""under the rug"" culture of the city and administration makes it worse. However, ones personal, social and academic success is entirely up to them. The school has incredible programs which are not hard to find and do not cost money. It is also better than many of the near alternatives."

They don't have special ed and they let my son flunk English and he never knew what was going on in any of the other classes. My son was in spec ed in Michigan but they didn't have it hear and Cumberland County Schools said they didn't have resource classes, self-contained classes here but they could meet his needs but they did not and the English teacher never had the time for him and she had about 30 or more kids in that co-taught class. There weren't even two classes in that co-taught class like co-taught classes are suppose to be. I'm pissed! I moved because I knew he would flunk one of those classes. He barely passed Civics too. We moved into Cape Fear school dist because this school doesn't do anything. I went to the assist principal, counselor, special ed head and no one ever helped him! If you have spec ed kids, don't send them here and don't listen to Cumberland County Schools when they say any school can meet a spec ed students needs because it's not true. We moved to Cape Fear School Dist. I'm hoping he will get more help there and I know they have spec ed! My son never knew what was going on or couldn't do any of the work since we moved here from Michigan in March!
