    The following are the principles that will guide the work of Taft Union High School District:



    Continually acquiring new information and modifying existing knowledge and skills



    Working collaboratively toward common goals



    Operating in a manner that is visible, predictable and understandable

  • Congratulations to Willow Pilgrim for being selected as Oil Tech’s Senior Student of the Month for October!  Willow is always present and does high quality work.  She is involved in school clubs, is the Senior Class President, and a multi-sport athlete, all while maintaining above a  4.0 GPA.  Willow says that Oil Tech has helped her come out of her shell and improved her public speaking skills.  When asked what advice she has for other Oil Tech Students, she said,, “Pay attention and listen to the guest speakers.  Everything that Oil Tech does has a reason, and that reason is to help you become successful.”

     Sierra Powell is our Sophomore Oil Tech Student of the Month!  Sierra has an excellent attitude and excels in her classes.  Her favorite part of Oil Tech is the family atmosphere and that the students and teachers are very supportive. She credits Oil Tech for helping her find her E-Colors and identifying her personality and communication style. Her advice to other students is, “don’t be afraid to ask questions and take a moment to breathe when you find yourself becoming overwhelmed.” You’re doing a great job, Sierra. Congratulations!
