9 Parent Reviews for Taylor High School

Shivers ran down my arms as I read the posts, presumably submitted by teachers and staff. It was galling to see the amount of misspellings, lack of capitalization, and poor sentence structure.

I live in Taylor, and I love the town, but I have to disagree with some of the other posters. Taylor HS has consistently been rated "Academically Acceptable" by the TEA, which equates to the ubiquitous and generic "meets minimum standards". Roughly half of the student population does not have English ...  Read more

The high school in this district has made outstanding progress this past year. There was just a big article in the newspaper about how well students have done on the state tests, especially the minority students.

What can I say? It's a public high school. If you sign up for AP classes (of which there are ample offerings) and get involved in the right extracurricular activities, you'll be ok. Teachers range from marvelous to apathetic to just plain stupid, and students range from intelligent people trying to ...  Read more
