    "I was only there for my freshman year. Taft can be a really a great school or can be a really bad school..it all depends on the crowd you hang out with. Sadly, the crowd I was in ,had a strong spark in my life. I felt Tafts drama was intense but nothing I couldn't handle. And I strongly believe that in highschool, you find out who you are, what your capable of, and it's all just an experience. Experiences are lessons, lessons are a part of life. Taft has lots of diversity n will give your child or you an opportunity to be aware of peoples beliefs and culture. Building memories. Building expensive."

    "This school is way over crowded! Fortunately, my kid attends ComArts, which is next door, but my kid has to go to Taft for electives and lunch. The one elective is band....so disorganized! My kid had to wait 5 hours to get fitted for a uniform and another 3 hours to get shoes and locker. Also, the practice schedule is too intense and interferes with their academics. My concern fell on deaf ears, when I contacted the band teacher. He doesn't care and puts winning competitions above the needs of the students. My kid loved band until moving to this school. So, be aware if your kid wants to be in the band. They don't follow the online schedule and add practices to an already full schedule."

    "Taft embodies the warmth and charm of a small town community. Friendly; from administration to teachers to students. My daughter is in her first year of high school. Freshman orientation was great! It offered the right amount of hand holding yet with enough learning opportunities for both me, as a parent, and my daughter, as the student to navigate on our own to become familiar with the new high school environment. When we had questions, anyone, everyone was there to answer them for us. A solid good school."

    "The school's education is average, the rough atmosphere is extremely intimidating. The academic program is not challenging, teachers are too lenient about the school work. The staff is great, but if you're looking for a more motivating and challenging education this is not the place to go. Even the AP classes are average. I feel like a waste a lot of time at school because I spend most of the day sitting around doing nothing."
