    "I started an ESL program in Taft after I moved to Chicago,US in 2014. Taft high school is like a giant "melting pot" with many students come from other countries around the world. Its unique about billingual aspect, the diversity makes Taft beautiful. Taft also known as the sport achievement as the Eagle (Taft students) always work hard and push themselves over limit. The education here not only provide the based-knowledges but also offers opportunities for scholarships, contests... However, I want to see more new aspect about Taft high school. It would be like class schedule; we should have more C bell. It would be changes to every lesson in class; teachers should organize the studying and make games for students involve rather than just talking or writing everything. Overall, Taft is a beautiful school to me!"

    "I was not going to attend this school originally. Then I transferred my sophomore year from Jones College Prep due to its promises to enroll me into the IBCP program. There was hope with the new incoming principal at the time, and everything fell into place. I'm now a senior and am happy I've chosen to stay at this school for my high school career. It's taught my a lot, directly and indirectly."

    "Taft does not have the reputation that it once did. As an alum IB student from Taft, I feel that the education I received is better than what I would have receive at any selective enrollment or private high school."

    "My experience at Taft these past three years has been wonderful. Teachers are really helpful and students are very welcoming and kind. Our principal has made a big difference in the school, each day encouraging the students to be the best they can. The rigorous courses I have taken such as AP Environmental Science, AP Biology, and AP Government and Politics have really prepared me for college."
