Welcome to Taft Elementary School, home of the Taft Tigers! We are proud of our students, staff, parents, and community who make the school successful. School begins each day at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:10 p.m. Taft School is home to approximately 380 students (kindergarten through fifth grade). In addition we have two classrooms for students with adaptive communication needs.

We strive to provide our students with the very best education possible. Our staff utilizes a variety of teaching methods and strategies to reach the needs of our students. We utilize differentiated instruction, guided reading, and technology to help students achieve to their fullest potential.
