Open Quote Both of my daughters started going to Taylor in 2007 (8th grade) and just graduated yesterday. They have a great facility with a young teaching staff that really get through to the kids. Student involvement is great and they all take pride in the Wildcats. Although they don't have a strong football team, they have one of the best soccer teams around. It was a great 5 years for us.

Open Quote The administration is horrible, they do not return phone calls. The way they deal with things is by refering you to someone else and then that person will not call you back. If you have ever had a credit go missing please contact me ASAP. I am building a case against them and would like to hear from more people this has happened to. A guidance counselor has confirmed there are others. Please contact me at nystevecf@ h0tmail.com

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
