Taylorsville High School Reviews

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.
My high school experience at Taylorsville has been great! The academics are excellent, the teachers are well educated and care to see you succeed. The school spirit is impeccable, thanks to the great student body. I'm proud to be a warrior.
