As a Junior right now of class of 2018! I love about Alief Taylor High School is the teachers are very supportive. Also, meeting a diverse nationalities is better to understand the cultural diversity as Houston is expressed. Taylor have dual credits, Ap, Honor, and regular classes to help out the students certain learning ability in their classes.
Taylor have varies sports like football, softball, dance, soccer, golf, swimming, basketball, baseball, and track. Also, artistic minds of Orchestra, Choir, Band, and Theater arts.
The clubs allows students to join to be part of Taylor like
Asian Multicultural Society Club, National Honor Society, and more. I would like to see the change of some counselors being more open minded and understanding the best scheduling to take as a requirement to graduate high school. Sometimes food isn't good to be eaten. Not enough time to get to far classes for some students. More educational help for students to be ready for college.

They also have programs to help student further there endorsement after graduation such as the medical field. The programs names are Clinical Rotation and Pharmacy Tech. Also Alief is a international district so they welcome all cultures. They have multiply clubs for everyone such as the Spanish , French, Student Council clubs and so on.
