Alumni Weekend 2018 is in the record books, and it was one to remember. Not only was the Class of ’68 back for its 50th Reunion, but members of the Class of ’43, attending their 75th Reunion, joined the many generations of alums in Watertown. Love for their alma mater filled the air as they walked Main Hall and the beautiful green lawns and pathways among its classic brick buildings.

In drafting the school motto, Mr. Taft sought not only to articulate a guiding principle for school life, but for life beyond Taft's bounds. One member of the alumni community is recognized each year with the school's highest alumni honor, The Horace Dutton Taft Alumni Medal, celebrating their dedication to a life of service.
In 1912, Horace Dutton Taft incorporated the Taft School, giving one-sixth ownership to school master Harley Fish Roberts. Fifteen years later Taft and Roberts turned the school over to a board of trustees, making it a non-profit institution. Today, the school's affairs are still guided and governed by a board of trustees.
