I've been at TAG since 4th grade. The teachers for the most part are kind and understanding and have very good knowledge about what they are teaching. The principal and assistant principal are very strict but know what they are doing. Guidance counselors and teachers are there for anyone to talk to about any situations so I felt safe knowing there were older people to talk to about any problems. There are no fights and rarely any bullying, there is sometimes some drama though but they are situations that are fixable, so overall the community is a safe space where everyone can get along. I've grown really close to my classmates we always keep in contact. The academics are challenging but as you get used to it so it makes you into a well rounded and high school/college ready. I'd say that ive enjoyed my time at TAG and it has made me ready for my high school life. Got into Chapin btw :DD

I was a TAG student, from 2018. From my personal perspective, its a really great school, and it challenges you and pushes you far from your limits. In elementary, I went a different school, and I was always a top student, I took the TAG test in 5th grade, and got in. I though TAG wouldn't be too difficult since I was already smart. However, TAG was nothing like I imagined, its truly Gifted & Talented. The classes are rigorous, and my fist year was sort of difficult, but I got through it, and ended up in honors, after working extra hear. After the state test results came out, I got a higher score than ever before, (ELA- 98% & MATH- 100%). I never thought I could do so well, and I will forever be grateful for TAG's influence on me, and I want to acknowledge how great it has been for me. I will never regret coming here, so glad I did.
TAG is a great school that prepared me for my future. I am currently an 8th grader at TAG, and I am so happy to be graduating from this school. I have attended TAG since kindergarten, and this school has opened up so many opportunities for me(AMC 8, AMC 10, Mathcounts, Debate, etc.). I am just very grateful to TAG for teaching me for the last 9 years.
