great teachers, great students, great parents and the best principal!!!
everything! the main building has the best view of the city skyline and it's very inspirational. every student seems fully engaged and focussed on their goals and as a result the atmosphere is exceptionally friendly and supportive. I don't know how they do it but somehow the teachers are able to get the kids to work very hard and enjoy it.
I love that TAG has the ability to be unconventional to an almost extreme degree, and still be repeatedly rated #1 by Newsweek. I think that stands as an extremely strong testimony to the level of devotion and love of learning possessed by both teacher and student.
TAG is not your stereotypical high school. Cliques are nonexistent and everyone is encouraged to have their own opinions. The teachers are more than teachers; they are also friends and mentors. I've heard so many people say that high school was the worst time of their life socially, and I always have to disagree with them.
It has a great environment. Everyone is so close-knit... it's like a family!! The teachers are great, the students are great... and the principal is amazing!!!
TAG has the best teachers in the world!! They build relationships with the students and help them to succeed.
Dedicated teachers with high expectations for their students. Opportunities for learning that go beyond the traditional classroom.
As an alumni of the Talented and Gifted Magnet, I am very proud to say that I attended the school. I started college as a sophomore, and had almost all of the basics done. I would not be the person I am today without having had attended the school with the support of the faculty, students and parents. I have always felt it is and was the best school in the country!
Bright spot in Dallas education, deserving of funds that enable it to continue and flourish in contributing to the futures of intelligent young people with great potential. Proud to say I'm a former student.
It may be hard work but going to TAG will really pay off in the future(quite literally).
There are three things that make TAG a great School: Excellent Courses Fascinating Teachers And a friendly student body. I love TAG in that it's a unique school. It's challenging and prepares us for college. I love the teachers since they can really help you out and are excellent at preparing us for the AP Tests. The students at TAG are the best! You don't see kids dropping out of school here or cliques here either. There's no concern for popularity here. That's not important. The only thing that matters here at TAG are your grades. And we enjoy being weird ....and boy are we good at that.
Few schools have both teachers who are passionate about the subjects they teach and students who love to learn. TAG happens to have both, as well as rigorous courses that challenge students and help prepare them for their future.
It starts with Leadership. With Mr Sarterino at the helm Tag is unstoppable
TAG Magnet made sure I was a well-rounded student, gave me the survival skills and competitive edge I needed for college.
Everyone brags about how dedicated the teachers are, how close we are to our classmates, and what a great environment this school is. All of that is most definitely true. You work hard - but you have fun. You work very hard - but you learn so much. Students at TAG grow by leaps and bounds, and there isn't a school in the world where I'd rather be. Each student wants to be there, and that shows whether we're discussing the political impact of current events or eating lunch. I've never met a group of more interesting, diverse, and talented people. TAG had so many opportunities, and everyone has a chance to explore them all.
Caring teachers and administrators led by the fabulous Mike Satarino, TAG overcomes less art and sports and terrible commutes by providing great academics in a family environment. Outstanding!
The teachers are totally committed to the students receiving a great education
Public prep school with an understanding of the needs of gifted students and a faculty and staff who go above and beyond to help each and every student reach his or her potential, TAG has it all.
