Fort Worth ISD’s I.M. Terrell Academy for STEM and VPA houses one of the finest performance halls of its size in Fort Worth. The Academy opened in fall 2018, after an extensive renovation that artfully blended a historic campus with a dynamic, modern addition. The crown jewel of the addition is the performance hall, which, when not in use by I.M. Terrell students, is regularly booked by organizations for performances and other events
