Taylor Jr. High adheres to the philosophy that student services are an essential and integral part of the overall educational process. The Taylor Counseling Department incorporates several different approaches to support academic achievement, personal and social growth, and career exploration. Students can sign up to see their counselor by coming before school, after school, during lunch or make an online request. Then, when the counselor is available, the student will receive a call slip.

Scheduling Information:

Request for changes

  • For incorrect placement by grade or course level
  • For an incomplete schedule (missing a period, there should be 9 periods)

Please note: requests to change teachers, teams and electives are not subject to change.

 

Priority #1-Create schedules for new students enrolling at TJH.
Priority #2- Working on schedules that have a missing period or a
repeated class.
Priority #3-Error placements on core classes or performance arts.

Currently, we are extremely limited on elective placements. Not all
students will receive their top elective requests. Students who had
the opportunity to submit a course request but didn't are not eligible
for elective changes. Students requesting to leave a performance art
class, will be placed in any available electives at this time due to
class sizes.

If your students is brand new to Taylor, we will do our best to honor
their elective choices for 2nd semester, but for 1st semester your
student will be placed in available electives. Please see our
counseling registration and course request tab to see the elective
options. Then email counseling with your student's top 3 choices.
