Taft Principal's Message
Taft has had a long tradition of meeting academic and social excellence for all of our students. This success we have for each of our students is a direct response of hard working staff and parents, always doing what are best for our students. Below is a summary of the Taft Family and we encourage you to call us with any comments you might have to keep us working strongly with you.
Together, we are making a huge, positive impact on our students and community!

We are a Family Built around children
Everyone associated with the school is part of the Taft family. Teachers, parents, community members, other staff members, and students strive to achieve the Taft Family's goal to maximize excellence in all things.
A bit about Our Family
Taft Primary School South serves approximately 460 children in grades kindergarten through third. There are five to six classroom teachers at each grade level and class size ranges from 23 to 26 children per class.
In addition to a child-centered curriculum emphasizing each student's mastery of basic skills, the school offers a great variety of special programs to serve individual student needs.
Out students services are here to help students deal with social and emotional problems that impact learning.
Students with learning difficulties receive help from special education teachers with extensive expertise in overcoming handicaps.
Taft School is a child's home away from home and parents are truly viewed as integral part to our ability to meet our goals for each child to maximize their excellence. Parents are encouraged to become active members of the school's Parent Teacher Organization which is combined with our sister school, Osborn Elementary.
The PTO has one major interest: enriching the children's school experience.
Volunteers assist in tutoring children, preparing materials for instruction, and supervising students on field trips, and in assisting in many aspects of the school day and special activities.
