    "It honestly depends on the student. Most of the kids are average but plan to attend local colleges like Wilbur Wright Community College, Oakton, North Park, etc. Not many kids are picky about what college they want to go to and plan to stay in state. However, kids who are enrolled in more academically difficult programs such as Academic Center, IB and AVID care about where they go to. Many of these kids want to get the highest grade they can and want to attend top tier schools."

    "Teachers really care about me and it is great when a teacher calls my parents to let them know that I am a great and respectable student. That shows they really care and notice my achievements."

    "When I first came to this school, I was a little disappointed because it was not my first choice school. However, do to the large amount of students, you found friends quickly and could even befriend the teachers and security guards. There are so many clubs you could join and many events that take place. There are some students that slack off and like to disobey authority but I believe that that's normal for every high school."

    "I have attended Taft high school all 4 years of my high school career. Each year has gotten better. Each teacher has their own unique teaching style to keep students engaged on the material. Every teacher I have had at Taft has been fully dedicated to their subject and classes; many of them would take classes on their own to expand their knowledge even more to add to our curriculum. Most teachers have been very on top of their grading as well as been fair and taken multiple aspects into consideration while grading. Taft has an overall great environment for a Chicago Public High School."
