I like the school because the classes are very informative and interesting, I went to different schools in the past, and moving to a new state left me depressed and scared. However, after coming to Taylor, I've grown into a new and better man as I was starting to become more social and stronger. The people at this school are so open and kind, and the classes are fun and provide a lot of opportunities to everyone such as after school activities, clubs, special events, etc. I do wish there were more varieties of food as well as more projects and special events like school trips or games, but it's still cool either way. The school is great and fun to be apart of, no matter who you are.

My experience at Taylor High School has been great! All of the teachers and staff are willing to help and take care of the students and really put in the hard work to make school a better place.
My experience here is great, not only with the students, but with the staff. Everyone is reasonable and friendly and there are plenty of people going out of their way to make each other's day when they can. The teachers are always willing to help with work, and grade fairly.
