Taylorsville High- We watched their basketball teams in a tournament and the coaches don't know what they are doing! It is sheer chaos! They seem to have their favorite players and no matter how off they are, they get all the play time. There is a reason you are never a contender for state. Better luck next year.
Taylorsville High School doesn't take good care of its students. All of the office employees and most of the teachers just want to get the kids in and out of high school as soon as they can. They run it like a business and it really doesn't work for the betterment of the students. When the employees make mistakes that jeopardize the students' educations, they expect the students to ignore it and fix it themselves. The attitudes of a lot of the employees puts the students in discomfort and does nothing to motivate them. The teachers themselves do a pretty good job with this, but the other employees lack the communication skills needed to run a school. If they would actually shut up and learn to listen to the students before jumping to conclusions, the school would run with more fluidity and trust. I can't express my disappointment with this school enough.
I'm a student at Taylorsville right now. I'm a junior and overall it's a great school! The teachers are great! They really care about our learning and are always willing to go the extra mile to do it. It isn't really a cliquey school at all..everyone hangs out with everyone! We have a lot of school spirit and many students attend our awesome assemblys, football, basketball, soccer games. The football games are so fun to go to. We also have a great drama club!!
As soon as you step through the doors you'll feel a sudden urge to curl up on the nearest bench and fall asleep.The dull drone of most of the teachers and the irritating brown tinge and darkness through out the school is the exact opposite of motivating.
I went to this school it is absolutely wonderful. I was on the swim team and it helped a lot with the transition. Not many people get made fun of or there aren't that many fights. The teachers do care about you and it all depends on how you act in class. I would recommend this school
This school is just like any other high school. The kids that excell get the attention and the kids that are slower get lost in the cracks. The school seems more interested in a child being late or absent than what they are actually learning. Everyone blames it on not having the money or too many kids in the classroom. That might be part of the problem but its that way all over the country. I think the kids are bored to tears in most classes and would rather be anywhere else. It's to bad there aren't video games that teach kids history or math.. they would excell in everything.
