Principal's Message

April Blanco - Terrace Elementary from SBISD on Vimeo.

It is a pleasure to serve as the Principal of Terrace Elementary.  I have a passion for learning, teaching, and leading which drives my work and service to our school.

I attended Trinity University in San Antonio for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I joined the SBISD team in 1999 as a teacher and pursued my administrative credentials through the University of St. Thomas. In 2005, I became an Assistant Principal.   

I received an additional certification from the Rice Education Entrepreneurship Program (REEP) in 2011 and joined the Terrace staff as Principal in 2012.    

Terrace Elementary is a place where you can see excellence in action.  Our teachers and staff are dedicated to using best and next practices to prepare our students for tomorrow.

Our classrooms are engaging learning environments where students explore their creativity, think critically, problem solve, and build community. 

Rigor, relevance, and relationships are keys to our success. I invite you to visit Terrace and discover the power that lies within.
