Welcome to William H. Taft Elementary!

A Youngstown City School
Our Mission
The Youngstown City School District, in partnership with parents and the community, is a beacon of hope, committed to academic excellence and preparing all learners to become productive, responsible citizens of a global society.

Our Vision
The YCSD will be a source of pride for the entire Mahoning Valley, with its buildings functioning as hubs of academic and community activities throughout the year. Employing state-of-the-art technology, research-based educational practices, and partnerships with parents and the community, all learners will meet and surpass state standards, and the YCSD will be a model of success as an academic and community resource.
