    "Taft is where students can be who they want. Also it's a friendly school, all the teachers are friendly. Each and every teacher wants you to pass all of your classes."

    "William Howard Taft High School is an amazing school full of supportive teachers, counselors, and fun students (as long as you know who the right crowd is). It was the high school I chose to continue my studies and I do not have a single regret. It is and will always be the best place to study in Chicago. Everyone I met left an impact in my life, good or bad. The only thing that matters is that I learned from all experiences. In the end, it is the same school that helped me better my english levels of communication and have fun while doing it. I can say that all the effort I put into studying in Taft was completely worth it, and the outcome is very good. I only wish that the building was cleaner and that there was a better lunch system. I really thank Taft's staff and everyone I met there for making me the woman I am now."

    "A great experience with fellow students and faculty. The Eagle sports teams and after school clubs provided an array of opportunities that I thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from. So sad to goodbye at graduation, but so much to look forward to."

    "There was a lot of things available at Taft. However, the school itself wasn't the best and it was very crowded. The Academic Center and IB program are very good!"

    "I am in the IB program at Taft and I feel like it is preparing me very well for college. As a school, the atmosphere is very nice and friendly. I have nothing to complain about. The teachers are all supportive and the counselors and advisors are helpful. I always feel assisted there."
