    Lake Taylor School is an Apple School, all students should have their iPADs with them daily.  Our teachers plan instruction using our motto to LEAD and student iPADs.  We encourage our students to learn, be engaged, acheive and discover using the iPADs.  The device is also used for testing to provide every advantage for your student.  Please, if you have not already done so come by the school and check out your student's iPAD!
