William Howard Taft High School is a public secondary school in the Northside Independent School District.

Taft High School was the fifth NISD high school, and the first one outside of Loop 1604. It is home to the magnet school Communications Arts High School which primarily focuses on college-readiness and technology-use. As with all NISD high schools, the school is named for a United States Supreme Court justice, in this case former Chief Justice William Howard Taft, who also served as President of the United States.

The Taft Raider Band has over 130 students from Communications Arts and Taft and it is led by Danny Solis Jr. The band qualified for the state marching contest in 2014.
