Camp Taylor Elementary...
Where the Learning Adventure Begins!!!

Located in the heart of the city, Camp Taylor Elementary offers something for every child. Dedicated to meeting the needs of every student, Camp Taylor offers many diverse programs to the students we serve. Whether your child is an excellent or struggling reader, is proficient or needs help in math, Camp Taylor Elementary has a curriculum to meet your child's needs. Through interventions and daytime Extended School Services (ESS), you can be assured your child will get the attention he or she needs. Through science modules, your child will be exposed to real-world, hands-on science that directly connects to our partnership with the Louisville Zoo. Our recently redesigned computer lab is equipped with the latest technology, where your child will learn the basics of word processing, spreadsheets, databases, and telecommunications. Each classroom has a minimum of three computers with Internet access.

Camp Taylor Elementary is a Care For Kids school. All classrooms use morning meetings to help build more caring communities. According to The Morning Meeting Book by Roxann Kriete, "All classroom members, including adults and students, gather in a circle at the start of every day, for Morning Meeting. Morning Meeting helps to create a climate of trust that encourages children to take risks. Morning Meeting sharpens children's speaking and listening skills. Morning Meeting is full of opportunities to have fun together".

Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) continuously strives to build relationships between parents and teachers with numerous activities that provide opportunities for interaction that foster the home-school connection.

Our Family Resource Center (FRC) goes to great lengths to ensure families have the tools they need to encourage and support learning. Camp Taylor Elementary also offers many after-school programs to compliment educating the whole child. These programs include co-ed basketball, cheerleading, volleyball, golf, art, and chess club. So, if you want your child to embrace and celebrate diversity as much as we do, we encourage you to come tour our school and become part of the Camp Taylor family.
