    "I went here for high school and despite what people have told me in the past about the school, I enjoyed it. The staff and admin treasured the pure minds that students had and nourished them with the information and education they needed to go to college or to find their own educational pathways to a career."

    "Taft High School is a very community oriented school. Lots of students, very sport oriented. Lots of pride and new relationships built outside of school grounds. Taft high school, is small yet very loud as in communication wise. Most people I've interacted with has been kind, some may not be so hospitable."

    "It was a good school not bad at all and it had great teachers. You can expect teachers to help you out and actually care for their students. Though the reason it has 4 instead of 5 stars is because there were fight happening a lot."

    "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."
