This is my 1st year with this school we moved from the East Coast this summer and my son is in 2nd grade. So far I have nothing but great things to say about the Principal, office staff, teachers and PTA!! All so welcoming and despite what you may read online about Nevada school systems being low rated...this school definitely has high standards with their curriculum similar to some of the best schools around the country!!
I am a retired elementary teacher with grand children at this school. I tend to be quite "picky" when it comes to choosing the best for them. I feel that they will receive the best education possible at Glen C. Taylor. Years of experience and interaction with the fine teachers at Taylor comprise the basis for everything I say that is positive about this fine school!
Many teachers on this staff have been there since the school opened. They are professionals who deserve the support and respect of parents.
The teachers here are the reason that the school is such a success academically. The teachers are always updating their curriculum and staying on top of things technologically. They teach a well rounded day with just enough fun to keep kids interested.
Generally a child should have 1/2 hour of homework for each grade level: K=1/2 hour, Gr.1 = 1 hour. When you look at group projects and individual research papers etc. done in the upper grades, I'm sure you will see the fairness of time spent on homework. As a former teacher myself, I know that homework determines the child's progress in all areas. It is undeniable necessary!
Glen Taylor practices all of these values by rewarding them regularly with Titan Tickets which are given by teachers and staff to students who display these character traits no matter how small the act. Students are proud of this school and happy with the teachers who recognize their value.
