    "I believe that high school is what you make of it. For many, my high school was a back up plan to if you didn't get into a selective enrollment school. Over the years, I am very happy I attended Taft. I started with all regular classes and one honors class and now 4 of my 7 classes are AP. I also have been involved in every musical since my freshman year. I was the only freshman who received a callback and ended up with a speaking role, I have now received the lead i my school's upcoming musical. I also auditioned for my school's highest raking choir my sophomore year and made it. Then, became the section leader my junior year and continued into my senior year as section leader. My junior year, my choir and I received Honors Superior at both City and State competition. That made us eligible to attend National's in Disney World over spring break. Without attending Taft, I don't know if I would have been involved in performing arts, which is such a big part of my life today. I used to want to just play softball, but seeing how great the performing arts staff was, I thought I would give it a go instead. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life thus far."

    "I am currently a senior, and I've had an amazing 4 years here at Taft. We have the best school events; including homecoming, college fairs, sporting events, and of course, prom! So far, I have enjoyed the homecoming games and dances the most. It is so much fun being with the entire school cheering our football team on."

    "We have a variety of international clubs that bring cultures together and everyone has fun here. People get along as well and feel involved. Plus, my school is an IB school so we bring culture together. In addition we all are very supportive of each other."
