TAG has been ranked atop the NEWSWEEK list of America's Top Public High Schools once again. This is the third #1 ranking in the last four years! The TAG class of 2009 graduated with scholarship and grant offers in excess of $16 million!!
The best four years of my life were spent at the School for the Talented and Gifted. It well prepared me for college, and I'll always remember the great teachers and fun times I had there.
I love TAG school because of what my kid learns here, the way the teachers motivate the kids to do their best, to want to know more, to be competitive. I like this school because it's challenging, because it offers a good variety of activities and because of the dedication of its teachers to 'teaching'.
Townview TAG High School is a socially and racially diverse school that challenges students to think and solve problems as well as acquire good study habits. There are few behavior problems because of the students and their families have worked hard to be admitted to the school. The faculty and staff are very professional and caring.
The school gives kids tons of individual attention, challenges them to excel, and has fantastic teachers. Going to school here prepared me to enter college with flying colors.
Wonderful teachers and principal! Great, motivated kids, and wonderful learning environment
TAG is an amazing school, staffed by superb, caring administrators and teachers who expect students to excel. It's the crown jewel of the Dallas ISD.
TAG is an environment that fosters both learning and creativity. Students explore subjects rather than learn by rote memorization.
The teachers are passionate about their subjects and their students. The administration is supportive and positive. The students know the importance of education and strive to make the most of their academic talents. This school is what every school should be.
Amazing teachers coupled with a strong community for fostering young intelligent minds!
Because it offers a lot of great opportunities and it has great teachers, staff and first of all a great principal
That TAG is able to maintain its focus and excellence -- always at or near the top among surveys of best schools in the nation -- at the same time that it continually deals with budget cut pressure from its school district is something of a miracle.
It's an excellent place for students to prepare for higher education. In addition to that it's evident that teachers are there to make a difference and they care. It's more than a profession it's a life experience for them.
The ratio of teachers vs. students. The academic courses taught. The school morale as a whole - faculty, staff, students is great!
I love the environment. It is always friendly, and everyone is extremely motivated.
The name says it all. It's been the best running with a tough curriculum, which is not one of the everyday high school student. The school possesses a wide variety of talent being used for greater purposes. When students feel they want to take on a new challenge, the School for the Talented and Gifted is always ready to meet them half-way. So I say crown the #1 public high school in the nation, and then take a trip to see how the money is being put towards bettering our future.
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.
