It's a great school! My son really loves going there. The teachers and staff are awesome! By the end of 1st grade my son was in the 90th % for reading and math. Lexile reading range of 665-815 that's about 4th grade level. The school is academically focused but also teaches responsibility and accountability for your actions, which i love.

Great school. Great teachers, deans, and principle. Love it love it love it!! This site needs to provide more updated information on test scores. I think it's highly unlikely that scores are so low with how much attention is given to the students and how they seem to thrive while handling such a vigorous curriculum. My overall score for this school is an 8 out of 10. I think Great Schools is way off in their assessment (4 out of 10?!).

i agree the school seems very strict, they are more concerned with the consensual paperwork that the parents have to sign, the students must remain quite most of the time, and it is run on a military level. Sometimes you have to let children have a little air, they will still learn :)

Update: Aug 8th I posted some issues pertaining to a paperwork error. Those issues were handled promptly and my son was able to attend on the first day of school with no problems. Mr Reese met with me personally and handled our situation quickly and professionally. As of today I am proud to say my son attends Taylor Exemplar Academy. He loves his teacher and I feel that the smaller size of the school allows the administration to communicate on a more personal level with parents. Yes, the principle does run the school on a strict level, but it's just as it should be. I want a principle and teacher who will assist me in pushing my children to be the best they can be and prepare them for college and their future career.

I really don't like this school. If you were considering sending your kid there think again. The new principal, Reese, runs the school like a military school. He only cares about making the school look good. He doesn't even care about the students. He cares about the scores only. Mr. Price cared for both parents and students. He cared for everyone and the problems that needed focusing on were taking care of. He encouraged everyone to speak their mind. Reese only wants people to be quite and do what he wants them to do. And he throws the problems around like rag dolls.

I could not agree more!!!! It's truly sad how things have changed - how test scores and not the individual child are more important and how students disabilities are often ignored.

Last year was my step sons 1st year attending. He's went to Southgate Public his whole life. What I noticed for 6th grade- All his teachers but math were great. If I had a question I would email sometimes a lot and they would always email back quickly and solve whatever problem or answer any question. Lots of homework. I Googled one of the math worksheets he was given because it had no directions and he had NO CLUE how to do it. Turns out his 6th grade math is really 8th grade math and that would explain why he has never seen it before. Everyone seems to dislike the Principal. I met him during conf and he was really nice and helpful. Every Sunday my phone received a call from the school and newsletters were updated every month. What I do NOT like is the fact my 7th grader doesn't get out of school till 3:45pm so there wont be over crowding in the parking lot. He gets home from school (because he walks) after 4pm. I'll agree the school is tough but I think it's a good fit for my child. I gave him the option to attend a different school and he declined.
