|Building a Better Future... One Student at a Time|
Welcome Taylor families! As our school staff prepares to begin another new school year, I wish to remind you of an extremely important statement that may make this year the best ever at Taylor Academy:
We will be working with you and your child throughout the school year to make certain that everyone's rights are being respected. We invite you to be our partner in discipline and learning.
Ethel M. Taylor Academy is an elementary school serving Pre-K through 6th grade students in the Millvale, South Cumminsville, Camp Washington and North Fairmount neighborhoods.
The school was named after Ethel M. Taylor, who understood the needs of this community and worked to improve its quality of life. She also believed in the importance of getting a good education. In 1957, she led the crusade to keep a public school in the neighborhood, ensuring that there would always be a school for the community's children. When this building was completed in 2007, it was named after this community pioneer.
The school has continued on her proud tradition of community involvement. It is a Community Learning Center (CLC) where citizens, businesses, community organizations and public agencies all play a vital role in student success.
Taylor's CLC acts as a hub for community services, providing access for students and families to health, safety and social services, as well as recreational, educational and cultural opportunities.
Many community organizations are active at Taylor. Central Clinic and Children's Home provide services, such as mental health and character building for children and their families.
Several businesses provide volunteers, as well as donations, clothes and supplies.
