Taylor said the honor truly goes to the school as a whole.

“Going through the application process, a lot of it talks about what does the school value educationally? How do you reach all kids?” Taylor said. “A lot of what I talked about is the great work that the teachers are doing at TES. It’s neat that the organization honored that work of our school as well.”
