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!
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.
