Mission Statement

In partnership with parents and community, James E. Taylor High School is committed to providing a balanced program of academic study and extra/co-curricular programs in a safe and caring environment. Our intent is to prepare our students to excel in the areas of lifelong learning and citizenship, and achieve both personal and professional success.​


We believe that in order to earn personal and professional success... Students must learn to THINK critically and solve real world problems with information that can be difficult or ambiguous. Students must learn that success is more often born of WORK, persistence, and grit, than of talent and natural ability. Students will GROW their intellectual and physical skills through hard work, practice, and belief in themselves. We believe that we are responsible for ensuring that students think, work, and grow.

Words by Gail Land
Music by Don Elam

Taylor High, we pledge to thee
Honor and fidelity,
Both now and in the years to be,
A never-failing loyalty.
Your name we shall ever see
Etched in our memory.
So here's to you, the blue and white of
Taylor High.

Words by Gail Land
Music by Don Elam

Mustangs, Mustangs, stand by your name,
Mustangs, Mustangs, fight for your fame.
We've got the spirit in it,
We've got the pep to win it.
Taylor, blue and white.
Oh! Yes, We'll
Fight, fight, fight, with all our might
For the Mustangs blue and white.
So come on, team, do your best.
You can stand the test, for
Taylor, Taylor, better t​han the rest.
