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!
Review Taylorsville High School
Taylorsville High School was the high school that I chose to attend. When deciding where to go, I had to keep in mind that I was planning on being a high school athlete- and with that there would be a lot of back and forth travel. Since THS is closer to my home, it is where I chose to go. Honestly looking back, I am SO happy with my decision. Overall Taylorsville isn't a very "popular" school to attend. The athletics as a whole aren't outstanding, the building is older, and many of the teachers were at some point, students there. In my three years there, I was impressed to see that there were so many improvements made. Athletics became steadily better, teachers seemed to be more involved and cared for students, and the building had a lot of repairs to make it look a lot better! My overall experience with THS was a good one, and I am thankful for the time I was able to spend there.
Granite District's Taylorsville High School has generally a nice and comfortable atmosphere, with encouraging attitudes used to inspire the students to work hard in order to achieve their goals and dreams. The teachers vary between being well-versed in their subjects and teachers that feign being knowledgeable about the subject. Aside from the shortcomings of academics, there's plenty of elective classes such as ceramics, photography, journalism, JROTC, weight training as well as multifarious sports including swimming, golf, volleyball, wrestling, football and basketball. It's fun to be immersed in these sort of activities, though sometimes there tends to be an occasional assembly that are lackluster in that they attempt to arouse more spirit from the students by offering rewards or dares that are more aggravating than tempting. Otherwise, it's been overall a pleasure to partake in all three years.
