Tara Spielman, Principal

Welcome to Taylor Ranch Elementary School!

Here at TRS, we are committed to helping each student achieve his or her potential and beyond! Rated an “A” school since 2001, Taylor Ranch has a strong history of academic excellence. Our teachers understand the importance of getting to know each student as an individual, identifying his/her strengths, interests, and opportunities for growth. Through creative learning experiences specifically designed with differentiated support, our goal is to provide every child with the best possible educational experience.

We teach our students the importance of strong character. Our school’s core beliefs are rooted in our shared expectations:

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be a Star!

Our character education program teaches students that we are defined by our words and actions. We strive to develop positive relationships with our students and emphasize the importance of kindness, empathy, and community service. We believe that engaging parents in the learning process is fundamental to a child’s success. We encourage our families and community partners to join the Trailblazer way of life by volunteering in the classroom, with our PTO Boosters, School Advisory Committee, after-school programs, and more!
