My experience at TAFA At Saghalie was incredible! It gave me the opportunity to explore many STEM businesses while also meeting amazing mentors to help me explore different careers. TAFA is different from other schools in our district because not only is it STEM and PBL (project based learning) but the teachers there go out of their way to make sure students are understanding the curriculum by teaching us certain subjects in creative ways. TAFA also gives students a chance to exhibit their creativity by holding an annual STEM Expo (which is a science fair). The only thing I would want changed about TAFA is the classes they offer that are not in stem. For example, home EC and drama/theater are classes that I've been extremely interested in but not given a chance to participate in school. However, TAFA is a well rounded school. Not only because of the countless field trips we partake in, and the opportunities we get to meet with STEM individuals, but the staff that makes it happen.

poor administration and lack of organization, does not challenge students or prepare them for success in college. However, they do prepare students for the workforce in terms of team projects and project management. In the lack of hard skills they provide they fluff with soft skills.
It is Project-Based learning and there are 3/4 big projects each year. The teachers and staff have the best intentions for each student and with classes small there is lots of one on one learning if needed.
