    Two out of the three of my children attended TRE and I have to admit (since we move a lot and my kids have been to many schools) this school by far is the best! Mr. Probst is a principal that really cares about the children and the teachers....in the three years my children attended we can't decide which one we like more. They are all awesome!

    My son is a student at TRE and I am very pleased with the school. He started here in 2nd grade and when he moved on to 3rd grade so did his teacher he has been able to continue for 2 yrs with the same teacher. He has done wonderfully well and is on target where he needs to be with his academics. The prinicipal shows a great deal of caring for the students he knows everyone of them by name and greets them in the morning as says have a good evening at the end of the day. The staff is just as wonderful including the maintenance staff. I can only hope that the levy passes on 5/5/09 so this school can continue with the success of this year for many years to come.

    Both of my children have attended Taylor Road during their elementary years and I must say that we have had the BEST experience. I have never meet a group of teachers so devoted and dedicated to their students. I am 110% pleased with the education provided level of attention love and commitment. My son and daughter had a great teacher every year while at Taylor Road. Several teachers have moved on or have been moved but new great teachers have also moved in. I would like to thank Mr. Propst all of the Taylor Road teachers school staff including the custodians and other school personnel for helping make my children who they are now and who they will become! My son will be moving on to 5th grade next school year and this school will be missed dearly! JOB WELL DONE TAYLOR ROAD!

    TRE has been nothing than superb in educating our two children. From the Principal to the teaching staff they've continuously adjust their methods of teaching our children based on their individual needs. Our children are safe well educated and have fun at TRE! Keep up the good work.

    I am a parent of three that attends Taylor Road. My biggest concern with Taylor is the lack of minorities in the authority positions. The school has more than 30% of minority students attending. I believe those students should see at least one staff member they can relate to.

    I am very pleased with this school and the neighborhood. There is a lot of parent involvement which means more activities for the children. The principal is doing a great job. Michelle

    My child has been attending Taylor Road for 4 years now. He is so thrilled with the staff principal and everyone who works there. I appreciate the way the teachers get back to me immediately with any question or concern I may have. I was disappointed that he is not provided with computer class this year. That was the one class he talked about each week. Kudos to Taylor Road

    My daughter just finished kindergarten at TRE for the '06-'07 school year and she had a fun and educational filled year there. Principal probst (fairly new) has turned this good school to a great school. Along with the solid educational experience that our children get from this school they also participated in special theme parties/festivals within each class and several field trips for out of the class educational experiences. Comparing the scores (greatschools rating and performance index) with other high scoring schools surrounding columbus - you'll find that the teachers are doing a great job even though the student to teacher ratio is fairly high. Hats off to the teachers. TRE/PTO even initiated a new safety program this year which allowed the dads of student to participate in the safety of it's students. We as parents are proud to have our daughter and soon to be daughters go through this great school. Thanks TRE (Taylor Road Elementary)

    The principal at this school does not care about the kids!! Most of the teachers are ok and even a couple of them are good. My kids will not be going back to this school. We are moving to make sure they can go to a school that cares about the children and about their education. This school gets a f!!

    My Daughter has attended Taylor Rd. since Kindergarten she is now a second grader. I think the school is great. They really want the parents to be involved. The PTO does a great job with family activities. I feel that the teachers and staff work well with all the kids whatever their need.

    My kids have attended Taylor Road for the past 3 years. I am very disappointed in this school for many reasons. The main ones are the leadership skills of the Principal the Ohio Achievement test scores have dropped continuously over the past few years and the ask no questions type of attitude with most of the teachers. With all the problems this school has my kids will no longer attend Taylor Road.

    The curriculum taught at Taylor Road is State Achievement . There is no time for one on one in the classroom just group involvement. Faculty will ask for parent involvement involvement being Do as you re told and not question anything . If you do question their ethics or standards you will be treated with an attitude and as a nuisance. If you have questions on the principal and his leadership with his faculty and children keep asking I know I am. The safety and discipline of our children falls back to Principal leadership everyone is still asking. The teacher quality is like in any other school there are teachers here that you want your child to have and there is a handful that no one wants to come in contact with.

    Taylor Road is an amazing school! The faculty is wonderful and do everything they can to make learning fun. They have many activities for the families to get involved in such as Family Dance Night Cookies with Santa Ice Cream social etc.

    1. Quality of academic programs I would rate as excellent. 2. Availability of music art sports and other extracurricular activities in my son's experience is excellent. My son is 7 and in the first grade he is involved in his music class art class and is starting a drawing class that has been offered. 3. I am a very involved parent attending fieldtrips helping with class parties and attending all school functions.

    There is not an open honest level of communication from the staff to parents. It seems for the most part the staff does not want parental involvement unless you are willing to sit back and not ask questions. More concerned with the dress code than academic achievement(or lack of).

    I have been very pleased with Taylor Road Elementary. My daughter has been attending the school for two years. It has lived up to all of our expectations. Continue the great work!
