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.

Alief Taylor has its ups and downs. For example, though is has a great athletic department and has a CNA program, the food is sub par and academics is lower than average. There is room to improve at many levels. Hopefully in the future years Taylor will improve but for now it gets 3 stars......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................jho
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.
