Our Principal's Message

Taylor HS Principal Maddox
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.
