SOAR (Skills, Organization, Achievement and Responsibility)
S.O.A.R.

Skills Organization Achievement Responsibility


S.O.A.R. is a student centered; selective enrollment elective unique to Taft High School designed to create a community of independent and motivated life-long learners through a proactive approach. S.O.A.R. lessons focus on teaching and implementing executive functioning and independent functioning skills; vital skills that are not inherent to all and greatly impact student motivation and life success. S.O.A.R. lessons are aligned with the latest Reading, Speaking & Listening initiatives as well the Common Core and Career Readiness Language Arts standards, supplementing reading, writing, comprehension, testing and critical thinking skills. S.O.A.R. models the International Baccalaureate learner profile characteristics setting the pace for life-long learners and the development of healthy choices through lessons and discussions on character development and social awareness. S.O.A.R. teachers work closely with the social workers, school psychologist, case managers, parents and your student’s teachers to differentiate, accommodate and provide for individual student needs while maintaining vertical and horizontal synergy. S.O.A.R. students will demonstrate continued growth and achievement in Skills, Organization, Achievement, and Responsibility for successful completion of coursework, extracurricular participation, graduation requirements, and school pride.


The SOAR Routine

Now in our 7th year, S.O.A.R. continues to prove a healthy differentiated classroom environment, doubling as a resource period built into the student’s daily schedule to assist with the implementation of successful Executive Functioning routines such as: maintaining organization and work completion.

The S.O.A.R. weekly routine consists of: 

  • Mondays and Tuesdays S.O.A.R. teachers instruct academic lessons
  • Two days per week are dedicated to Academic Days.
    • Academic Days: Allow students extra time to work independently on other class work, while receiving additional assistance & direction they need from their S.O.A.R. teacher. Provides time and space to reorganize, update agenda centering themselves on their follow through and list of ‘to do’s'. Additional time to meet with a counselor, service provider or social worker, providing all parties available. A place to ask logistical questions to brainstorm ideas for projects.
  • Fridays are for grade analysis, computing grade point averages, individual teacher and student plan/goal conferences and weekly assessments

We are designing a new website for
Taft High School

Educational Networks is currently designing a new website for Taft High School. It will look beautiful when we finish it. But it will take a few weeks.

What you are looking at is not your new website. It's just a temporary site that allows us to build the content areas while our designers are working on the new design. When the new design is finalized, all the content on this site will be automatically transferred to the new website, and this site will be closed. This way, your new website will already contain a lot of content from day one. Sounds exciting?

Although this temporary site is accessible on the Internet, it is not advertised anywhere. It is just our secret place that allows us to do our work.

Join Us! It will be fun!

We promise, you will love it! The new website will not only look beautiful, but it will be also very easy to update. It will be a place for the entire community. Not only the website administrators, but also teachers and staff members will be able to post information on their own sections. If you are a teacher, you will be able to easily create pages to introduce yourself to the community, build your own photo albums, upload videos, create class pages, and even post homework assignments that will be displayed not only on your class pages, but also emailed to the parents and students automatically every day.

How easy is it?

Very easy! If you use the most standard Internet services such as email and Facebook, or do online shopping on websites like Amazon.com, you are already qualified. No worries...

When do I start? How?

You can start right now! Whatever information you post on this temporary site will be automatically transferred to the new website when we launch it. And you can continue posting updates and even more information afterwards whenever you like.

Here is how:

Go to: http://tafths.enadmin.org

Just log in if you have already been provided your login credentials. If not, call our technical support team at (866) 473-0400 so that we can create your account. It will take only a minute.

The rest will be easy. Upload your profile photo, create as many new pages as you wish, create your classes, photo albums, and even your own video gallery.

After each update, come back to this website, and refresh. You will see that all the information you posted is displayed on this temporary website. And when we officially launch the new website, everything will be transferred automatically in no time!

If you need any help, call our support team at (866) 473-0400.

Welcome to Educational Networks! We look forward to seeing your pages and hearing from you!
