    "Taft is absolutely amazing the programs and classes are great, they are very challenging. The only thing I do not like about it is how over crowded it is."

    "Taft is culturally diverse, but we still see the separation. Some higher level classes seem the same as the regular level classes. On the other hand, I feel safe while in school, and I have had more supportive teachers than not."

    "Good academics and activities; resourceful. Caring teachers for the most part. Decent environment; could be better. Needs improvement in the athletic department and more preparation for standardized testing and college. More maintenance is needed, and the bathrooms need to be more accessible. Overcrowded; students should not be having lunch periods in the morning."

    "Very informative, kind, engaging, encouraging, and collaborative high school. Great neighborhood and friendly teachers and faculty members. Classes are informative, ranging from AP to IB to honors to regulars classes. Everything and anything is offered at this well-rounded school that will deeply work to prepare students for education and life beyond graduating high school."

    "I liked the way that the school has allowed me to grow into a well rounded person who has a better understanding of how the real world works. I would like to see some improvements such as more money devoted to the arts and nicer facilities."
