Taft is a K-6 elementary school. We are also the site of a regionalized program for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students from birth to 6th grade for central Orange County.

Our mission is to promote a partnership that includes students, staff, parents, and the community to ensure the academic success of all students.  Teachers and support staff provide a rigorous, standards-based instructional program to Taft’s diverse student population.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Taft Elementary School. As principal, I am proud of the many successes that take place each and every day at our school. Our students strive to learn more and more each day. We have a great staff that endeavors to make school a challenging and rewarding environment for student learning.  Taft is also home to the regionalized Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) Program that serves DHH students from eight surrounding school districts within the Orange County region.  I invite you to learn more about our school through the information on this web page. Thank you for your interest in Taft Elementary School.
Steven Longacre, Principal
