TAFT IS AN INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE WORLD SCHOOL
For the second consecutive year Taft High School has been recognized by US News and World Reports as one of the Best High School in the Nation. Taft High School is the largest IB school in Illinois. International Baccalaureate World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering a challenging and high quality program of international education. Taft is the school that the movie GREASE was based on and one of our famous alumni is Terry Kath, the lead singer and guitarist of the band CHICAGO.
