I feel like I had a pretty average high school experience as far as academics go. Most of my teachers were okay, I never had any major conflicts with them. I did have a few teachers that I loved dearly and am still in contact with today. I had some disturbing things happen to me with a guy that had Asperger syndrome, the administration handled things very well. As far as diversity goes in the school, there is some diversity but it's not the most diverse school you'll find in the state of Utah. If you are looking for a school with a good athletic program, Taylorsville is not the best place to go. The gym teachers are hilarious, but the athletic teams don't perform very well. However the cheer and baseball teams are pretty good. The choral arts program at Taylorsville is amazing, Leah Tarrant is the director. She it like a mother to me, everyone calls her momma T. Not only is the director great, but the choirs compete and win!

Before I transferred to Taylorsville High, I wasn't on the path of success towards graduation. I was slacking in everything that has to do with school and I was failing at trying to get back on my feet. Once I got registered into Tville, everything changed for me. It definitely took a while, because I was still stuck in my old ways, but after a couple of my friends got expelled from the school, I realized that something needs to change. I continued to do what I was doing, which was setting me back, but I found ways to make everything work. I started communicating more with the Vice Principal and also my teachers. This helped me stay involved in all my studies. My grades starting picking up the end of my junior year and I found myself getting more and more involved. I joined JROTC, and also entered one of my paintings into the school art gallery which was bought by the school. My overall rate is definitely 5 stars because of the dedication they have to their students!
What I lik about Taylorsville High is the amount of support you receive from the teachers and administrators. They always look out for you and acknowledge you when you’re doing a good job in school. They care a lot about your attendance and how you carry yourself through school. The administrators do whatever they can do to make sure the students are in classes. If we aren’t doing so well, trackers will pull us out and go over our school records. They help you find solutions to having better grades and being able to focus better. We have a lot of opportunities to learn more about college and we have great sources to help us have a better chance of going to college. Teachers work with us and our personal schedules. They also teach us in a way to understand the subject which is a good thing, because when we are taught in the best way possible we continue to gain more knowledge.
