be responsible in all you do. So students, ask yourselves...am I being a responsible Taylor student? Are there any areas where I need to improve, and what steps can I take to be more responsible? Being a Taylor student is a big deal. When you graduate from our school, it really has meaning. PFTSTA is very well respected in the community and education world as an A+ outstanding school. Besides providing our student with excellent opportunities and a superior education, we hope that all of our learners will walk away with important life skills such as responsibility, good work ethic, integrity, accountability, critical thinking, and much more. We understand that you are young-kids and teenagers, and still developing. However, because you are a Taylor student, we also expect you to do your best, be honest with work/ assignments, and complete tasks thoroughly, efficiently, and most
I along with your teachers know you are great, we look forward to seeing positive improvements!

Spotlight Senior Goal for 2011-2012 year: My goal for the year of 2011-2012 is to get accepted in a close to home University that has a wonderful Music Business/Management program!!! Thought about Taylor: I think Patrick Taylor has prepared me for college in ways that no other school could have. Helpful tip for success at Taylor:
In order to achieve success at Taylor DON’T fall behind. Try not to miss too many days. Missing a day at Taylor is like missing an entire week of school.
