The Taft School

When Mr. Taft established his school, he envisioned it as a place that would educate the "whole person." That vision remains the guiding principle of the school today. It steers everything we do. Education at Taft is personal, moral and ethical, as well as academic.

Nowhere is that belief clearer than in the Portrait of a Graduate the faculty created in 2003. In it they describe the mission as students and faculty live it in the 21st century. Our culture is inseparable from our mission, and our community is fundamentally shaped by this belief in helping young people become lifelong learners, thoughtful world citizens and caring people.

We take seriously our school motto: "Not to be served but to serve."
