I feel so lucky to be a part of the weird, intense, and most importantly, supportive TAG community. Each teacher dedicates time and effort into their classes because of their genuine interest in what they're teaching and the success of their students. While the environment is competitive, it encourages your work ethic and teaches you how to overcome difficult situations. For every stressful night of studying for a test or spending hours on end doing homework, I better myself as a student and learn more about myself as a person. Everyone at the school is smart, but intelligence isn't measured on a 1-10 scale, and TAG teaches you to be humble because you're surrounded by interesting people with different skills and backgrounds than your own. Every day you can find something to appreciate, whether it's teachers bringing you cereal on test days or groups of students playing the kazoo while fighting with toy light sabers.

Academically rigorous, this school is filled with opportunities and challenges that continually matures students to become better people and citizens. Students are throughly prepared for college, and they are encouraged to take AP classes and other subject that are challenging. Majority of the teachers arrive early and are always ready to help their students in anyway possible. Because Townview TAG is a rather small school, there is a strong sense of family and community. Everyone knows each other, and students are more than just another face in the class or a name on a paper to our teachers. I love this school, and I couldn't image attending any other .
Generally, the school was great and helped me a ton in preparation for college. The teachers are really motivated about teaching students and you can feel the love that they share. They are always there to help you and want to get to know you instead of just passing in and out of their class like ghosts. The students really get to know each other and help each other out especially before a test. The one thing that does need work is the college application/admissions process. I felt that I was missing great scholarships due to the lack of resources and the ineffectiveness of the process.
