Congratulations IMT Orchestras!
Good Morning Friends,
I wanted to let each of you know about our orchestra's performances at their UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest this week. We took three orchestras to perform and are happy to say that I.M. Terrell is the ONLY program in the ENTIRE region with multiple ensembles that received unanimous SUPERIOR ratings from each judge at this year's contest. Each group performed music at least two levels over their required selections, with the varsity orchestra playing a program of entirely professional level music. This is an incredible accomplishment for these young musicians, and we are so proud of their hard work and perseverance during this extremely difficult year.
All the best,
Director of Instrumental Music
I.M. Terrell Academy for STEM and Visual Performing Arts

2022 Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Ebony " Nickie" Johnson
Our Troupe created the incredible board below highlighting our troupe accomplishments and we were selected as one of the winners of the All Star Troupe Award! There were over 100 schoolswho entered, so we were very excited for this win!We had five students compete in acting competitions, and I am DELIGHTED to say that three of our students have advanced to the International Thespian Convention! To my knowledge, this is the first time an FWISD student has advanced to nationals! Lola McNallie scored superior on her contrasting monologues, and Ainsley Bond/Anna Escovedo received a PERFECT score from all three judges for their duet scene! Also, our two other students, Meadow Simpson & Hannah Campbell scored extremely well, and will be competing in additional categories in the spring!
The I.M. Terrell Drone Team earned the Judge’s Choice Award!
The judges described our team as a team that overcame many challenges
with exemplary teamwork and perseverance. At BELL there is a saying that
you’re not done until the paperwork weighs the same amount as the drone,
and our team’s Engineering Notebook met the standard; detailing all the team meetings
and lessons learned. Of all the presentations from the past 3 events, I.M. Terrell especially stood out to them.
This weekend, several of our vocal music apprentices participated in TMEA Region Choir events.

I. M. Terrell High School was a secondary school located in Fort Worth, Texas. The school opened in 1882 as the city's first black school during the era of formal racial segregation in the United States. The high school closed in 1973, although the building reopened as an elementary school in 1998. The school was renamed I.M Terrell High School in 1921, in honor of the former principal. Under the legacy of G. A. Baxter, the music program in the mid-20th century produced many of the prominent jazz and rhythm & blues musicians of that era.
