The children are diverse in every way, in ethnicity, economically, religiously, a true wonderful representation of NYC. The children are united by their intense devotion to learning, they are sponges. There is no bullying, I have heard them tease each other, but have also heard teachers say "stand up for yourselves,but most importantly stand up for each other." The principal works closely with the DOE and pilots remarkable programs to enrich curriculum. The parent coordinator is involved and passionate. Yes you get the emails, and you will be an informed parent! Not only informed about TAG, your child, school events, but learning opportunities in the community and around NYC. The PTA is strong and getting stronger, yes we have to work hard to supply some programs, but our parents are lawyers, bus drivers, police officers, housekeepers, what we have we work hard to provide for our children. This is like having a prep school education in a public school setting, and I am so proud that my children are TAG scholars.
