    I am currently going to this school. It really frustrates me so I'm begging my parents to send me to a boarding school. This school is clean big has a lot of school spirit and is better in academics than Elsik and Hastings. It's also becoming a bit ghetto. If your children will go here be prepared to spend lots of money. They will mess up your schedules and give you classes you didn't even pick. There is this one teacher who will just give you a ton of work and you won't learn a thing. He'll also intimidate you to place you in an advanced class you don't want to be in because of all the stress. This school has a few bad teachers and its very unorganized. It has a better environment then those other schools but it isn't as good as Kerr. I only liked my elective classes with my two great teachers. I cannot stay here for another two years after this year... The performing arts are great and the academics are good.

    GREAT SCHOOL... its the cleanest school I've ever been in. Lots of friendly people and the staff is very helpful. Love the drumline; best line I've heard in houston so far

    My daughter graduated from Taylor high school. I have always been impressed with the admininstrative staff. The one problem I found was that some teachers were reluctant to have parent conferences to discuss student progress. It seemed that the attitude was that these children are almost adults and the parents should allow them to take care of their own grades. I totally disagree with this.
