I've attended Patrick Taylor since my freshman year, and everyone has gone above and beyond to make me feel welcomed. Even though I am Deaf, no one here treats me differently or disrespectfully- not even my peers! The teachers are friendly and intelligent and the students are engaging and interesting. There is never a boring day with all the events on and off campus, especially if you're involved with any of the many extracurricular programs to choose from. Students are welcome and encouraged to break down the walls of prejudice and challenge the impossible to achieve their dreams each year.

I have attended Patrick F. Taylor Academy for going on seven years now (sixth through twelfth grade), and as a whole I do believe this is an excellent school. The curriculum pushes students to succeed in its classes. It is extremely successful academically, achieving second-best school in Louisiana. However, due to this fact there is heavy competition among the students. Many of them have achieved very high scores in all classes and on standardized tests, which can cause stress among the those who are unable to achieve such scores. Outside of this, the art departments are not heavily funded nor prioritized, so there are few opportunities presented there. The sports department is being more thoroughly developed in recent years, yet still not very extensive. If a student is interested in arts or sports, I would recommend maybe looking at other options; however, academically, this school is quite outstanding and has left me with no doubt that I am prepared for my college years ahead.
Patrick Taylor Academy defiantly prepared my for college. From ninth grade, when I started, you were expected to be independent and keep track of your responsibilities. This led me to be able to balance hours of homework, a job, and all my after school activities. My first semester of college was a breeze, I made the dean's list!
