Taft Union High School Reviews
A lot of teachers don't help when students get bullied. They provide good and cheap food. They provide great technology and excellent programs. Teachers are average because some teachers care way to much to where they babysit students, don't care at all where they allow students to call other students name, or they have favorites. They school cares way to much about students who play sport.
The teachers at Taft High are some of the best, especially if you're interested in Art or Video Production. The campus is huge and it's very easy to find your own little group of friends. There were a few on campus fights though, but they were usually broken up pretty fast. The library has a huge collection of books, and even comics.
I possess a strong feeling about Taft Union High School because it gives their student a wider range of opportunities, in which can be applied to your future. I would like to see more college courses to be added to the curriculum.
