Open Quote I have only been at Taft for half a year and right when i got there i felt welcomed. The people are nice and the teachers really do care. The choir gives me many great opportunities and experiences. The athletics is amazing and very helpful in so many ways. When i got to Taft i got my first set a straight A's. :) Close Quote

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.
