This school is amazing to say the least. The Principal's involvement is above and beyond, talk about watching over your flock! What a pro! The teachers are awesome! I felt very safe sending my child to Taft. Its like one big family. When my child needed extra help preparing for Jr. high the teacher jumped ...  Read more

My child went to another Mesa District School for 'K' and began going to Taft for 1st grade. His teacher, Mrs. Knoblock noticed that his reading skills were far below normal. She spent alot of extra time tutoring my child during the past year and now he is reading at nearing a third grade level. Any ...  Read more
