I felt Taunton High School's guidance department could helped more with my college readiness. I felt as though they only told us to do something without a rhyme or reason as to why it will benefit us or motivate us to begin our life's journey. The food was mostly cold and if you have fifth lunch, you have to deal with whatever is left over. The requirements for gym class is unrealistic and forces kids to overexert themselves in timed running excersizes (1/2 mile, mile, mile and 1/2, pacer, and more). For kids with self esteem issues (like myself) or even just nonathletic children, this is a nightmare and a chance for those football stars to judge us. The faculty and staff, however, are more a 50/50 hit or miss. The English department is by far my favorite group of teachers who were, unfortunately, the only ones who truly helped me on my road to be successful in college. I gave THS a 3 star rating because of these reasons.

Taunton High is an excellent school. The teachers really care about students and there’s always lots to do by means of clubs, sports, etc. They prepare students for college but are also aware that not everyone goes down that path, and prepares students for careers with classes in culinary, management, business, finance, graphic design, woodworking / shop, the list goes on! While we might get bad press on occasion, the good of THS and our students outweighs the bad tenfold. We definitely need more funding as there is a lot to be improved upon (food quality, for one) but as a senior about to graduate and go to an Ivy League school, I can 100% say THS prepared me for the future. Go tigers!!
Taunton High School is a school who people may not believe is that good of a school to be being a city school and all the troublemakers, but believe me when I say it is a very good school! The teachers and staff care very much and will do anything to help you succeed in high school. I always see our Headmaster at very home sporting event and he always talk to his students! Taunton High School is home to over 50 clubs and activities, 18 varsity sports, and over 15 different AP courses to take!
