    "As tax payers this school has had many repairs done to make it a better and safer place for our kids. It upsets me that the principle being the leader and example does not enforce the rules for running in, on, or around planters especially in handicapped bus loading areas. I heard a lady approach him and say a teacher asked the kids over there to quit running and climbing on pipes and they ignore her? He says, "that happens allot." Field trips, I have been embrassed when a 6th grade class is compared to a 2nd grade class and taxes or grants pay for this. The bus trip for a 6th grade field trip was unsafe when you have kids sitting backwards in a seats. Boys slugging each other, and a teacher saying they are having fun. It is a very disrespectful school and it starts at the top. Do the teachers care, YES, but they need to work together on rules, but that starts at the top. After school program for the 1st time is setting rules, making kids walk and be respectful. This is the 1st time I would ever consider putting my child in after school care"

    "My brothers and sisters went to Taft back in the 90's during the year of Mr. Hart yes we where known as the Morgan's or Morgan 4. Now i have my fiances 6 yr old enrolled at Taft just finished Kinder who his teacher was Mrs. Jones now he's heading in to first grade. He loves the school and kids growing up as a only child he comes home always with stories about what he did at school or his new friend he made.and for those who say TAFT doesn't care about your child stop that because it takes both us parents and teachers to teach our kids so they may excel"

    "My oldest daughter went to this school and my two little ones are there. I feel that the teachers are very caring and do what they can with the budget. Most spend their own money to make sure that their students have the supplies necessary. That's what makes a difference in schools Teachers and faculty that cares. All three of my children's have excelled at Taft. I feel it is one of the best in the district."

    "My daughter started kinder last year. I don't know why anyone would say the school is not safe. They do the best they can with the present budget. I am envolved in the PFO and yes there is not a lot of parent participation but many parents do volunteer time in class. The school does their best with what they have and I do agree this school has to be one of the best in the district."

    "Our daughter went to Taft for nearly 12 yrs. She is hearing impaired. I was surprised to see a post saying this school does not care about your child. That is false. This school is great with your child and they care very much. Mr. Longacre,(principal) is wonderful along with the teachers and Susan in the office. Our daughter had a wonderful childhood at Taft and we are thankful these great teachers were there for her."
