    "There is a wide variety of classes at Taft. You have the option to take regulars, honors, or AP classes. There are plenty of electives, PE classes, Art classes, and many more. Taft also has an IB program which is one of the many reasons kids chose Taft. All of the teachers are supportive and understanding."
