    "I have been nothing but happy with Taft school since my oldest son started school here 6 years ago. I love that the school has such small class sizes so my kids get the attention that they need. Any issues that I have ever had (which are few and minor) have been dealt with and resolved in a timely manner to my satisfaction. Thanks for providing such a great experience for my kids!"

    "Taft is a small district with a big heart. The Taft family has been so welcoming and helpful in all situations. I never feel that we cannot express a concern if one arises."

    "The real deal on Taft School SD 90 in Lockport. The facts speak for themselves. My daughter and her five best buddies all went to Taft school in Lockport Il a few years back. Looking back, the school had a small town feel to it, Teachers were interested in the well being of your child. They always seemed to be concerned about making your child be the best they could be. Well it must of worked . Fast forward, all six went on to Lockport High School, all honor students, one class president , one homecoming queen and on the school valedictorian. Pretty good for this small feeder school.After that they all graduated with honors and all six went on to College universities. Two went to Ivy league schools and the other four went to Big Ten schools, Two are now in Masters programs and one is a PHD student. That's the real results from Taft School. Not too shabby Thanks Taft !!"

    "Taft is a really good school that is lacking resources that could greatly benefit its students and staff. The superintendent is a strong leader and has raised the level of enthusiasm at Taft. The school has plans to update the building, which will improve the way it looks and the way students learn."

    "I am so proud to be a part of such a unique 1 building district. All of my kids are able to attend the same school, K-8, without the private school tuition costs, yet our school has that close knit community feel! The building is rich in history, yet with current curriculum, and dedicated teachers. The positive energy is derived from the superintendent, and is spreading through the school! Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?"
