My child is in Kindergarden here and in the few short weeks he has been at school his reading and writing have taken off at a remarkable pace. It is like he received a new operating system. "Gifted and Lucky" to have gotten a spot, but for those Pre-K parents who are already starting to worry about next year, know that a lot of us were in the same place a year ago, and a positive outcome is possible. TAG deserves its rankings, and it is wonderful to have your child immersed in a beautifully diverse environment. It is the best of NYC rolled into one. And the price tag cant be beat!
The entire TAG Community is exactly that....A COMMUNITY. all the staff members, teachers, students' families and students are awesome. Everyone communicates with each other works together and unite for the greater cause of the children, their education, opportunities & happiness.
My daughter has been at TAG since Kindergarten. She is now in 2nd grade. She loves the school, her teacher, and friends. We love it because she is getting such a great education. The coursework is about a year ahead for the grade, but the pace is driven by the students. All her teachers have been easy to communicate with and responsive to our questions. There is a strong PTA working with the administration in supporting the school and students to bring in more enrichment programs and other activities.
Great school, wonderful diversity that you don't get anywhere else with equally rigorous academic curriculum. We're truly lucky to have our daughter at TAG. We supplement enrichment with after school art and sports activities.
I'm so thrilled that my child is lucky enough to attend this wonderful school (although this wasn't our first choice at the beginning) There is amazing group of parents work hard together to make the school better. The standards are high with teachers expecting students to achieve the standards set for the grade above them. There is a fair bit of homework, but I am sure it will pay off... The teachers are also very experienced and very motivated to improve themselves and the curriculum.
TAG is a great school. The teachers are simply outstanding. They do so many things right- art, music, science, technology! My one concern is that children need to play and exercise, and there is not enough physical activity at TAG. Research shows that physical play and exercise will enhance learning. I am looking forward to seeing more opportunities at TAG. I know this school will only get better and better, and I'm proud that my children attend school here.
Some of the advantages of TAG are its outstanding, energetic teachers, and dedicated, involved parents. One of the disadvantages is that it sometimes sacrifices physical education and play time in order to maintain a high academic standard.
