    "I am a grandparent and my daughter and granddaughter live with us. It's a beautiful way to grow old. My granddaughter entered into the TK in Sept & now, halfway through, my daughter has transferred her out of Taft & into another school. We had a terrible experience. First, she has had 5 teachers since Sept. Teacher #1 is pregnant & we are told there will be a long term sub. The long term sub turned into 4 subs of varying time frames & no contact with parents that these changes keep occurring. Also you CANNOT walk the child to her classroom but must drop them off at the gate so you NEVER KNOW who is actually teaching your kid that day. They call it 'fostering independence but I call it trying to dodge questions. And, we found out that kids had to be sent home with lice. NOTHING was said to the other parents so they could check their kids before sending them to school. Lastly sub #2 scheduled parent/teacher conferences a week before conference week, then left & didn't tell anyone about the parents showing up for scheduled conferences. Once my daughter went to the conference she spoke to a sub who did not know her child. There s more but I m done!"

    "Taft elementary school s a terrible school the test scores drop each year instead of going up! How much lower do the scores have to go before they change things.This school is more worried about protecting it's under performing staff than it is about the students."

    "I love this school. Teachers are very nice. Office staff also really cares about kids. They have quite a variety of kids. They don't give up on those that struggle. They also have family nights that teach kids you can have fun and learn. If tests scores are low they would have been lower if it hadn't been for the good teachers that help."

    "My 3 children have/still go here & all received individual attention from teachers, staff & principal.The teachers go above & beyond in addressing the children's individual needs & responding to parents' input. (Yes, a few need to retire perhaps, but with the strong young principal, they'll either get with the program or move on.) Innovative interventions have resulted in rising test scores. Parents are encouraged to visit any time by the principal: "This is your school", and she means it. The positive atmosphere is a result of principal, staff, teachers & parents working together. Parents are responding to outreach efforts by the PTA with enthusiasm. I have seen a number of other schools and they don't have the welcoming community feel and the determination to succeed (even the wealthy ones.) Safe, motivated, positive and growing. A "can-do" spirit despite budget cuts, Taft is where each child is treated with respect as an individual: I love this school."
