i love all the clubs at the school. One thing i would change is the favorite picking in sports/ clubs. I would also have a stronger system in bullying and take situations a little more seriously. This is because if not treated with the severity of the situation, it could lead to serious issues. I also believe that they should stop calling out only certain kids for dress code. Thus, if someone is not in dress code, dress code everyone. Overall, this is an amazing school!

I have been at this school since 6th grade and I am so proud to be a part of the Taylor Wildcat community! There is no other school I would rather go to because at this school, you know everybody and everyone knows you. Along with everyone else, you become a family and support each other through any circumstance. When you are part of a club, you are joined with people you already know and together you meet new people and help the environment. When you join a sport, the entire school comes together to support the team and we proudly acknowledge exceptional athletes. At this school, everyone is welcome and the wildcat pride only lives on. This is undeniably true because, "Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!"
The thing I’m most liked about Taylor middle high school was that all the people there were very loving and kind and the teachers really you look for their students to be successful in the classroom and in life. I look at myself as a person who really admires success and I really feel like the teachers wanting me to succeed is a boost in confidence for me and it allows me to see myself for who I really am. Overall my experience definitely was one for the books. I think I would want to be able to redo it! If I could, that is.
