I went to one of the biggest alief schools Taylor high school. I always wanted to go to taylor and not because education reasons lol. You know when your in middle school all people talk about is the sports, the pep rally’s, even the other boys and girls who attended your future high school. When I was in middle school Taylor high school was the number 1 school to go to. Going in to high school is scary at first because it’s big and your not separated everyone’s together freshman’s all the way to seniors. I’m going to tell you a little secret that got me through all four years of high school the STAFF. Yeah I know you thought I was going to say my boyfriend/girlfriend or my millions of friends you think people have in high school well nope it was the staff. Programs and safe spots like CIS, your assistant principals, and even your teachers. You’ll do great in high school just try to open your eyes out side of high school musical dreams. GOODLUCK!

I graduated Taylor high school in 2017 and i love all the memories and knowledge that i gained while attending. They have an amazing staff dedicated to college readiness through AVID. Ms. Zimmerman was my AVID instructor and she helped me and my classmates with college waivers, the SATs, ACTs, essays, college acceptances, and financial aid.
Another great thing about this school was their school spirit when it came to sports. They have the best football team in the district and super fun activities that promote the sports attendance.
Lastly they offer a variety of after school activities such as Student Council, National Honor Society, and the Spanish Honor Society and many more.
Overall my experience at Alief Taylor High School has been great in my opinion. I was an very involved student doing theatre all four years of high school and being in AVID to assist my organizational skills as well being motivated to take challenging courses to better myself. These were only I liked about ATHS. The food blows takes to Michelle Obama's balance food plan for nationwide. Most of the teachers are very cool depending on who you ask. The sports teams at ATHS are very hit or miss, they're more on the side of miss except the soccer teams. ATHS is filled with tons of clubs and organizations so if anything peaks your interest you should have no problems fitting in.
