John H. Taggart School Reviews

2 reviews
Taggart is becoming a much better school than it used to be. They teach a lot of art/music and things that some local Catholic schools don't have. The teachers hired in these past years have been very good at being involved with parents and bettering the education. As long as parents are involved and attend meetings, you can really see how much effort is being put into each child. My kid learned a lot from school, and I'm surprised ratings for Taggart hasn't increased! I guess the parents that are not so involved still have kids struggling at some point. As long as you do the proper studying and homework, you can really excel and get into a great high school with a Taggart education!

Taggart tries its best to boost up students' reading comprehension skills. However, it lacks in terms of improving students' math scores. The students who excel need more recognition.
