    "Fabulous school, demanding and challenging curriculum that challenges kids in a supportive environment. Family friendly environment with caring administrators and teachers who seem to love teaching kids. The kids do call it Taylor University for a reason...your child will be prepared to move on to the college or University or vocation of their choice and be successful."

    "I did not enjoy attending Taylor at all!!!! I transferred to Taylor my sophomore year and the first interaction was with a student that wanted to know which drugs I liked. The combination of wreckless kids with money, nice cars and drug habits is toxic. Be prepared to have a lot of homework and do twice the amount of work than other high schools. There are many cliques and unfortunately you have to be in one or else you won't have any friends. The counselors are totally useless and their advice for college consists of putting you in front of a computer or telling you that some people "just aren't cut out for college". The favoritism by teachers and the staff for students that have wealthy parents is painfully obvious. It's an extremely snobby, judgmental and wealthy school. Be prepared to be segregated by the amount of money your parents have, the house you live in or the car you drive."

    "The actual school and the teachers here are great, but the principal is horrible! He doesn't care about the teachers or the students, and the only thing he cares about is the test scores that come out of the classrooms. He is not a fair principal, and he is a politician that is only looking to pad his own pocket. He is selfish, and he does not care about this school. It is unfortunate that the teachers and staff here have to deal with such a person. He runs the school like a business, not like a place that should be a nurturing environment for students. I hate that my child has to go to a school that is run by a person such as him, but I have no choice. Fortunately the teachers are top notch and they truly do care about the students and the future of the students. I just can't speak against the principal enough."

    "I find it very telling that every one of the negative reviews for this school contains no fewer than three major errors in grammar. It may be unfair to rake the educational quality of a school over the coals if you cannot distinguish between "to" and "too," or if you cannot properly place a comma. I attended Taylor from 2001 to 2005, and I am well aware of the expectations there. However, I was better prepared when I went to college than most of my classmates. If you want your child to have a beneficial educational experience, then you want a school that will prepare its students for life, rather than one that will issue the grades that pacify parents."

    "I graduated from here a couple of years ago and thought it was an amazing school. You truly get what you put in, and more. There's so many programs, clubs, and activities to try you're bound to find a circle you fit in with. Sure Taylor is known to be a competitive school but it is by no means impossible. If you learn to time manage efficiently and not slack off you will end up with an good GPA, same as anywhere else. Speaking from my own experience, it pays off in college."
