School Information

William H. Taft Elementary School is a Marion City Schools elementary building located at 1000 Robinson Ave.

Hours are 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. weekdays. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. for students.

We at Taft recognize that a strong relationship between the school and home is necessary in order to ensure the success of our students. We share the responsibility for the child's success and at Taft we always put the child first.

We ask that you support your child's learning by ensuring that your child:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time and ready to learn.
  • Reads daily for 20 minutes to develop a love of reading and to improve literacy skills.
  • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school.

Taft continues to implement its Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) initiative through its Taft HERO program:

  • Honorable
  • Engaged
  • Responsible
  • Orderly and safe

We also continue to implement The Leader in Me. We recognize that everyone has the ability to become a leader and encourage our students to be leaders.
