    Taylors Falls Elementary is full of caring teachers/staff who really know how to bring out the best in each of the students both academically and socially. Students are able to participate in music and art. The music programs include both movement and music. Taylors Falls Elementary encourages all parents to be involved. There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer.

    I found the greatest school in the country! Taylors Falls has a wonderful principal and staff. There are many different types of teaching styles-as individual as the instructors and that is what gives this school charm. Many were the times that I saw eagles flying over the school yard and deer on the road next to the softball field! Men and women teachers create a wholesome atmosphere. The classes are kindergarten to 5th grade with the older children mentoring. My hope is that my grandchildren will be able to attend this school. Great job!

    The quality of the academic programs seems to be fairly average. My kids seem to love the music art and other extracurricular activities that TFE has to offer. I really enjoy the fact that TFE encourages the parents to be involved in EVERY aspect of their childs educational career.
