did not enjoy attending Taylor at all!!!! I transferred to Taylor my sophomore year and the first interaction was with a student that wanted to know which drugs I liked. The combination of wreckless kids with money, nice cars and drug habits is toxic. Be prepared to have a lot of homework and do twice the amount of work than other high schools. There are many cliques and unfortunately you have to be in one or else you won't have any friends. The counselors are totally useless and their advice for college consists of putting you in front of a computer or telling you that some people "just aren't cut out for college". The favoritism by teachers and the staff for students that have wealthy parents is painfully obvious. It's an extremely snobby, judgmental and wealthy school. Be prepared to be segregated by the amount of money your parents have, the house you live in or the car you drive.

I loved the school spirt at Taylor, everyone had a great amount of school spirit. This was most displayed in the men's basketball in which we were called the mustang MOB, one of the loudest cheering crowds in the district whether winning or losing. It was also brought out with fall football, the common phrase was MFND or mustang fight never dies which many students graduated with in their hearts. There were some great teachers at Taylor, but there were some others that didn't make an effort to make their classroom welcoming to the students and made their favoritism too obvious. Overall, Katy Taylor was a great school to attend.
Upon entering freshman year, the community within the school is apparent. There were lots of upperclassmen who worked to help their younger counterparts. As I progressed through the years, I have learned how to self-learn for many classes as there are many teachers who fail to completely teach a subject. However, the competition within the school reigns high so it helped to motivate me to improve my grades. I was able to join lots of clubs and organizations as well.
