Our Principal's Message

Taylor High School (THS) is strikingly different from other area high schools. The student body has a richness in diversity and talent that exemplifies the Taylor community.  As "A Place for Everyone,"​ Taylor High ​has a staff that is committed to uncovering, sharpening, and supporting the development ​of our students' rich talents. Our aim is to produce graduates who are not only prepared intellectually for their futures but also have been offered every opportunity to find success. An example of our efforts to support this aspiration is in our Dual Enrollment, Advanced Placement (AP) program, TSTC program, and comprehensive offerings.
 
We aim to provide a learning experience that demonstrates a care and concern for each of our students—​a defining characteristic of our school. Beyond those initiatives previously mentioned, we also offer credit recovery, extension opportunities, weekly tutoring support, and the Problem Solving Team to provide students with a variety of resources outside of the classroom. Our incoming ninth graders participate in Freshman Seminar, led by upperclassmen in the Duck Pride leadership program, to support student transition from middle school to high school, an invaluable experience not just for our incoming students, but for our student leaders as well. 
 
What inspires me is providing students with an educational experience that encourages and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. I aim to provide a learning experience that demonstrates a care and concern for each of our students—​a defining characteristic of our school. At Taylor High School we strive to provide an invaluable experience not just for our incoming students, but for our student leaders as well. Every student should have a plan and preparedness for post high school success.

Tammy Truex - Taylor Middle School, 7th Grade Science Teacher,

I love working for TISD because the challenges of teaching allow me to work with amazing people and encourage me to continually grow. The quote "once a duck, always a duck" is a special statement. This a community that represents a family. I am blessed to have attended the district as a student K-12, teach with those who taught me, work with former students as peers, and continue to serve generations to come. It is so very inspiring and motivating to know of students and peers who make a difference in this world.

Taylor is home; it's where my heart is and a district that I am proud to be a part of. Taylor ISD is a district that truly believes in doing what is best for students, and supporting teachers and administrators in creating the best educational environments and opportunities that our students deserve. Taylor, even though a growing community, still has the welcoming, small town feel and our district is committed for providing the best educational opportunities for our students to develop and fulfill their unique potential.

I love the feeling of community in Taylor ISD. We always come together whether it be in difficult times or in times of celebration. The spirit and pride the people of Taylor ISD have is amazing. Taylor ISD has helped me grow into an adventurous person ready to explore the world. The education I have gotten in my History and Geography classes have helped me in my knowledge of various world cultures and have solidified my motivation to travel to each and every corner of our world.
