TAG Young Scholars School Reviews

The Talented and Gifted School for Young Scholars is a wonderful institution. I have had amazing teachers (shout out to Ms.Danticat!) that have taught me to truly immerse myself in learning. The curriculum is a rigorous one, with 8th graders required to take High school level Regents Exams at the end of their senior year. In my years there, I have only had 3 teachers that I have had a problem with. However, this school does need more funds, as we do not have any clubs other than those provided by the YMCA (which almost no one in the upper grades participates in) and sometimes the appearance of PTA funded programs such as the debate club. Similarly, the only sports are limited to girls volleyball and boys basketball. However, I believe this school is truly remarkable because of its students. The principal may be a jerk to both kindergarteners and staff alike, but the passion that students have for learning (even the lazy ones) makes my time there worthwhile.
