I liked how involved the teachers were with my education. They were like friends to me, and their only goal is to see the students succeed. I also like how many different extra curricular activities there were that you can be involved in. The only thing I would like to see changed is more diversity within the school. In my senior class there’s only 5 African Americans, and no other ethnicities except a couple Mexicans.

I really enjoyed my time at Taylor and I had several great teachers that really went above and beyond what is expected. Because Taylor High School is a small school, the teachers are able to focus on students one on one and help with any problems or just work more individually to make sure the students fully understand the material that is covered throughout their classes. Taylor High School has several clubs and are pushing to expand every day. My favorite part there was the art department, and now they have an entire building dedicated to the arts. Mrs. Dishon is one of my favorite teachers ever, and she is one of the most caring and genuine people I have ever known.
Taylor High school is a great school I recommend to anyone involved in clubs and diversity. They need to fix the facilities and the food, it's all outdated!
