    I love Taylor Middle school. My children went there as did I and and my brothers and sisters. I even had the same gym coach as my kids! The school is smaller than the others but it just give you a feeling of closeness and warmth when you are there. All of the teachers are genuinely nice and really care about your child. I couldn't be happier.

    I love Taylor as have both my girls. The principal and her staff as well as all the teachers couldn't be nicer and more accessible and there is a true feeling of warmth and community each time I walk into the place. The teachers for each grade all work very well as a group. There is a lot of history in the school and many of the teachers were once students there themselves. I'm proud that my kids will always be a part of this history.
