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.

My experience at Alief Taylor High School has been great! From the club activities to sports and academics it's been an amazing experience. The teachers especially, so far in the years I've attended Taylor High School my teachers have been beyond helpful and supportive.
The teachers and principles at my school have really helped me succeed! Every time I needed help with a test or on some homework all I had to do was go after school and get help and they would help me even more then I needed. I never showed my appreciation for some of my teachers as much as I should have but they really helped me get through my High School year and helped me meet my standards, kind of. I was going through a lot my freshman-junior year and wasn't really on my A game like I was supposed to but my teachers tried their best to understand that and work with me through all complications and still managed to put there all into my academics. The teachers at my school really do worry about us succeeding and the principles are very strict when it comes to the students academics which is really a great opportunity and prepares us for college even more. Our school makes sure that we give our all in the learning environment and is very big on academics and I make sure I am the best that I can be!
