My son is attending Taylor Elementary, he has been there since 2nd grade. I Love Taylor Elementary. The teachers are friendly, the secretary and administrative staff are always bubbly and greet you with a smile. My son loves going to school there and really has gotten an outstanding education during his time at Taylor. Go Tigers!

This is my child's second year at Taylor. The staff is wonderful. Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Woody have been great teachers for my child. I have spent several hours helping teachers in the classroom because parent involvement is encouraged and all teachers at Taylor are outstanding. Officer Travis has started a safety program with the students and it has helped students to keep their safety and the safety of others on their minds. Officer Travis is excellent with all the children and I feel better knowing that he's on campus. I would only say that Taylor really needs more clubs (Math, Music, ETC) for students to be involved in. I think most of the older students would enjoy this.

My daughter has been at Taylor for 2 years. Her Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Rollins, was absolutely wonderful. I didn't think we would ever have another teacher as good as she is. Her teacher this year is Mrs. Robinson and she is also exceptional. My daughter is thriving thanks to this school and its staff.

I love Taylor Elementay not only is the teachers top of the line but we have a new wondderful principal mr. Todd Shoemaker.Parent volunters are always needed on our many activities that our school does thruout the year. I am very proud to be a Taylor mom and it will be a pleasure for me to help the school as much as i can. We also have a new music teacher who is very nice and child friendly and i'm positive that she will do a great job this year.We also have a new PTO staff that is already preparing for a fun year with a fall festival,a santa workshop,and even a christmas babysitting service. Our school is the best no questions ask.

Thank You to our principal Mrs.Cofer for all your hard work and dedication . The school looks great, the new computer lab looks wonderful. And my daughter looks forward to being able to learn on them soon, thanks to you and all the teachers.
