Both of my boys either are going or have gone to Taft Elementary. The teachers are wonderful and make learning really fun for the kids (incorporating alot of activities in the classroom). My oldest changed school districts and his grades immediately went up, he is happier and doing well. My youngest started school at Taft and actually tells me that school is the most fun thing ever...except for homework LOL! The teachers and faculty are wonderful! The principal, Mr. Addison, is the most involved principal I have ever seen! He knows both of my boys by name (and not because they get in trouble) and actually helps with the student pickup line everyday!

Went here as a child and honestly, my only happy school memories in Port Neches Groves area. I still remember all of my teachers names, no clue if they are still teaching. I am 27 now & researching schools out of state in MA for my own children & couldn't help being reminiscent of my own elementary years.

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
