Taylor is an excellent school with an inclusive PTA and wonderful teachers. We have been there 3 years now and I am so glad we chose to move to this area. My son has done amazing and I have felt welcomed as well since they encourage parental involvement.

Amazing school! Awesome teacher and PTA Involvement. The staff is always accommodating and the teachers have gone above and beyond to help my son. Ms. Carter is amazing and hard spent so much time with him. So very happy we live in this cluster.

We are new to the school thing, since my oldest child just started kindergarten. I have however been extremely impressed with the staff, the school, and the community. We moved into the same neighborhood that the school is in and we checked out the school before buying the house. So far I haven't seen anything that raises concerns about safety or quality of education. The school staff is friendly and motivated. The school has great diversity and it seems like most of the students come from homes that value education and community. My daughter's class has a good mix of White, Black, Asian, and Hispanic children. All of them interact very well together and my daughter loves her classmates. This is a healthy environment for a child to learn and develop.

Both my son and daughter attend Taylor Elementary. I think that the teachers and administration staff are wonderful. They have always addressed my concerns and have a great rapport with my children. Mrs. Beasley, in particular is a special teacher. I hope that my daughter will get her for 2nd grade.

My son who is now in the 2nd grade has attended Taylor since the later part of his Kindergarten year. Due to our relocation to Georgia, my son was not on the AKS level of Taylor. The teachers worked with him and brought in reinforcement teachers to get him on level. The parent teacher involvement is great and the teachers that he has had are wonderful. The front office staff is extremely pleasant and the Principal Dr. Lehner is hands on, always interactive with the parents and students before and after school and is always seen in the hallways and at the bus pick up and drop off. I LOVE TAYLOR.
