Two of my children have graduated with honors and now attending college, I still have one at Taft and she is a senior and looking forward to a wonderful year and off to college as well. I believe it depends on the student and family ...  Read more

Taft gets better and better every year. I have a junior and a freshman and just in the past 2 years, the school has improved in so many ways. My kids are very different, yet Taft offers enough choices for them both to find their niche. They have met good friends, performed outstandingly on all AP exams, ...  Read more

Pretty safe and you actually learn a lot. It's nothing like what you hear from other people about danger and low education. Teachers follow the standards and help you out. There is a decent amount of security and you feel safe on school grounds.

Taft is a great school with a diverse student population. Taft graduates are college bound, well-rounded citizens of character.

Though I find it is common to dislike a school (especially as a student/former student), I feel that this was uncommonly bad. I feel as if my writing skills and well-roundedness came from my middle school, and if anything Taft has dumbed me down. The teachers rarely care about your wellbeing in their ...  Read more

This is an excellent school. When I sent my son here I was a little sketchy about it but in the end I was glad with my descion. If you don't know where to send your child Taft is the way to because the teachers are involved and care
