Taft is good school. Academically, it's better if you're in AP or Honors classes. The general ed classes are okay just the students are different; tend to be disrespectful, irritating, and ignorant. Taft is a big school, so there's a lot students. It's culturally diverse. Just hang out with the right crowd and you'll be good!

Taft has been fantastic! All three of my children have attended Taft. Two of my children have graduated with honors and now attending college, I still have one at Taft and she is a senior and looking forward to a wonderful year and off to college as well. I believe it depends on the student and family on how well they do at Taft, too many parents blame the school or teachers when their child doesn't do well or don't fit in. All three of my children did well academically and were also very involved in sports and the clubs offered at Taft. I do have to say that cosmetically Taft has a long way to go and I hope by the time my senior graduates the school construction will have ended. Thanks Taft!!!

Taft gets better and better every year. I have a junior and a freshman and just in the past 2 years, the school has improved in so many ways. My kids are very different, yet Taft offers enough choices for them both to find their niche. They have met good friends, performed outstandingly on all AP exams, and are involved in meaningful extracurriculars that make them excited to go to school.

Pretty safe and you actually learn a lot. It's nothing like what you hear from other people about danger and low education. Teachers follow the standards and help you out. There is a decent amount of security and you feel safe on school grounds.

Taft high school...It's reputation is enough to tell you to send your kid anywhere but here. You may have heard rumors--and, in many cases, rumors are usually untrue. However, the ones about Taft are indeed fully true, to my disappointment. In addition to the decapitated physical state of the school, the whole environment of intense, regular, everyday violence is more than enough to want to leave after just a few days enrolled. There are some friends I have made, but I am indeed willing to leave them behind if it means getting out of here. And the curriculum is a joke -- give me a break, Taft. Even your AP courses aren't up to scale with other schools' REGULAR courses. I can only hope to leave this place one day.. I see other kids bullied and tossed around in additional to the daily/weekly school fights between the many students of ethnic backgrounds and again can only hope the many problems of Taft High School are solved in the near future so that another student who is forced into the hopeless district of Los Angeles Unified will not be exposed into William Howard Taft High School.

This was a great school to attend and I recommend it to any parent who's looking to send their child/children to a school with a bright future ahead of them. :)

I am a current student of this wonderful High School, I love it here, I have all honors level and AP level courses. Teachers actually care for you and don't leave you helpless, unless we are talking about the Science Department. I must say I never in my entire life had the worst teacher teaching me Honors Chemistry. That is pretty much 95% of my peers opinion. Sadly the Administration has not really took notice the problem, but other than that this school is a great experience!


Posted November 10, 2010

I said ten years ago I wouldn't send my child to TAFT, and thank you today TAFT for proving me wrong. What an awesome High School and my daughter has great caring teachers and many great memories of the school so far. The Principal is great and very responsive. Don't listen to the unhappy student below there is always one whiner in the bunch! great job taft.

Taft is a great school with a diverse student population. Taft graduates are college bound, well-rounded citizens of character.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 3, 2010

Though I find it is common to dislike a school (especially as a student/former student), I feel that this was uncommonly bad. I feel as if my writing skills and well-roundedness came from my middle school, and if anything Taft has dumbed me down. The teachers rarely care about your wellbeing in their class, and the ones who do are so unqualified to teach that they would be fired if not for their tenure. I strongly advise AGAINST sending a child to this school.

This is an excellent school. When I sent my son here I was a little sketchy about it but in the end I was glad with my descion. If you don't know where to send your child Taft is the way to because the teachers are involved and care

This school is very entertaining. It has all the needs. Sports wise its wonderful, teachers and staff are very good with the children. My son and I love the school.

I used to think Taft was a great school because of the teachers. What happened? They are rude and aggressive and THEY are always right, never taking into consideration the individual child. Safety - what a joke. When you have heavy equipment and large scale trailers moving around in the parking lot with the children still at school or coming to school - not even looking around for who they may hit - it's horrible. Who looks out for our kids? I'm at a loss! I am actively looking for another school for my child. Home schooling is looking better all the time. Someone wake up!!!!

I just started 9th grade here this year. I came from Portola and everyone says 'taft is like a bigger version of Portola.' Since I loved Portola, I came here. Those students could not have been more wrong. At Portola, I would always have 4 or 5 good teachers out of 6. At Taft, I have only 2 good teachers. At Portola, there was some parent involvement. At Taft, there is barely any. At Portola, teachers would review with us before tests. At Taft they don't. At Portola, the counselors would care about the students. At Taft, they yell at you and make you feel unwanted, even though I am an honors student. I have been at this school for 4 months and I am not impressed. The only reason why I would consider staying is because it's freshman year and many people say freshman year is horribly confusing.

A school is what you make it. As a parent its my responsibility to be informed about what the school offers, to become familiar with the administrators and counselors, but ultimately to provide information to my child so that he/she has the best high school experience. Taft is not perfect, but its a whole lot better than other schools.

I am sending my daughter to Taft for 9th grade because my experience with my oldest daughter who went to Taft and graduated out of El Camino. Taft staff/teachers seem to like kids and their jobs. While the school is a little rundown, their staff is not!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 21, 2009

I found Taft to have the most involved teachers. Teachers who seemed to like their jobs. My eldest daughter went to Taft and El Camino Real. I prefer Taft. El Camino, left me as a parent, completely uniformed about college and the process, including scholarships for a 4.2 gpa, honors and hearing impaired. I won't make the mistake twice. Taft- You Rule!

As a parent of a Taft high school student I find that I get no support from the school for my child.I Have tried time after time to get help for my son and none has came yet.I have left work to come and talk to staff members only to be turned away.What happen to no child left be hind I am a concern parent at this point with no help from your school.

Posted September 29, 2008

I was really torn about sending my child here for 9th grade. There were a lot of bad press about the school in the past. Fortunately I did a lot of painstaking research, and decided on Taft. My other choice was Granada Hills Charter, an excellent school. I am so glad we went with Taft. The academics are excellent; the campus environment, as my child puts it, 'has a real community feel'. We love it. And needless to say the football team is a powerhouse....games are great fun.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
