    This school is way under-rated in my view. With excellent teachers academic director and principal this school has unmatched qualities in tuning a child for future challenges of the future. This is a great school by any means.

    This fabulous school has encouraged challenged supported and nurtured my daughter to be the best she can be - all the while having fun being creative and learning leadership and social skills that will serve her well in future schooling. We love this school.

    My daughters have been attending the Taylor School since they were school aged. From day one they have love every minute. I would recommend this school to all parents with children grades pre-school through sixth grade. ***** By the way I'm in fifth grade and i am using my father's computer and i have learned that talking like an adult is hard.*****

    I took my son out of this school after 2 years because he was anything but joyful about learning there. He was struggling with academics and stressed out and the teachers and administration did not take my concerns seriously! After he started going to public school he became a much happier kid and he finally started reading! He also told me after the fact that he was being bullied at Taylor school! I wish I had known sooner and that I had pulled him out of that school sooner. To think that I was paying for that!

    I have two girls ages 3-1/2 and 8. They love the school. The last day of school is always the saddest day for them. The education is amazing. Many in our family are educators; all are impressed with the Taylor school. Math writing reading science social studies are all fun and all taught at the highest level. Making the material fun is a key part of the school's educational philosophy. But elementary education goes far beyond academics. Learning skills social skills manual skills art and music are also incredibly important and in teaching these skills the Taylor school also excels. One example the Taylor school PK and PS kids are allowed to attend many events for example classical concerts that are not open for kids that age. But the event organizers know that the Taylor school kids have the skills to sit quietly and politely.

    my daughter loves to learn and I attribute much of this desire to the dedicated and talented teachers at the Taylor School. This is truly an amazing school for young learners

    This school is truly amazing! Nurturing Joyful Learners is their 'mission statement.' They truly succeed. Every child is recognized for his/her own strengths and taught accordingly. They love going to school and learning. Learning is cool at the Taylor School.
