Our School

Taylor Intermediate School serves 4th–6th grade students throughout the Taylor community. Thanks to our highly qualified staff and supportive community, Taylor students consistently score above Arizona’s state average on standardized tests. At Taylor, we treat everyone with respect and are proud of the safe, friendly environment we’ve created. This environment is allows our students the freedom to excel as “part of the Lobo Pup’s pack!”

Our Curriculum
Building upon this foundation, we are preparing our students with the knowledge and skills necessary for success in college and/or a career. Our curriculum follows Arizona’s Common Core Standards in literacy and math. These standards teach concepts using critical-thinking and problem solving skills and by encouraging the development of effective communication. If you would like more information about what your child will be learning at Taylor, please visit Common Core Standards or give us a call. We’d be happy to help.

Title 1
Taylor Intermediate School qualifies for extended federal aid as part of the Title I program. This program ensures that our students receive the education and support they need to excel across the curriculum. We use federal funds to hire highly qualified teachers, provide for technology/curriculum improvements and training, and encourage parental involvement and volunteerism. To learn more, visit the U.S. Department of Education’s website.
