The faculty at TAG will be with you forever. People you meet at TAG will become friends for life if not part of what you consider your family. Life long connections are made here along with an education that is amazing and prepares you for most any learning environment make this school wonderful.
It allows all its students to excell in all areas, and gives numerous college-credit courses. Coming from this school into any college nearly garuntees you a good, paid-for college tuition, from where you can recieve an excellent education, beginning abouve your classmates. TAG gives all its students a jump-start on life, allows them to follow their passion, and I believe it truly is the number 1 school in the nation (Newsweek: 2006, '07, '08)
Dr. J and Mr. Martin are probably the best teachers in their subjects in the country. They teach at TAG.
The teachers love to teach, the students love to learn and the principal,staff and parents support them all in this endeavor!
Best teachers, best philosophy, best teacher to student ratios. Hands down best.
Helps the students to prepare for college. Prepares students to pass AP exams.
Without TAG I have doubts that I would have been able to attend college with a full scholarship and form the bonds I did there. Both students and faculty form a family at TAG, one of which I'm still connected with and grateful for. At TAG I wasn't another kid...I was a learner and a teacher with all the support that I could have needed, something that I have come to appreciate dearly.
TAG is an excellent school for college-bound kids who want an academically challenging high school experience. It has a great track record for passing AP exams, admissions to elite colleges, and scholarships awarded. The faculty members are extremely dedicated and caring. The student body is small but extremely diverse in every way -- race, nationality, religion, neighborhood and socio-economic class. Everyone gets along really well, including students, parents & faculty. The trade-offs are no sports program (some people would say this is actually an advantage) and some fairly long commutes from the far corners of Dallas ISD's huge district to TAG.
As an incoming Junior at the Talented and Gifted Magnet, I couldn't want better. The teachers really help you on an individual basis and you have so many opportunities. One of the qualities, outside of the fabulous education, I admire most about TAG is the family-like atmosphere. Everybody literally knows or knows of everybody. The principal knows all 200 students by name and you each student graduates with a minimum of 10 AP courses, however it is usually around 14-16. To any student that really wants a challenge and a family-like atmosphere and the opportunity to go to nearly any college you wish, I would attend TAG.
TAG was just named the #1 H.S. in the U.S. by Newsweek magazine. It is small but has an incredibly diverse student body.
Great school, great teachers - the surroundings do harken to the 'inner city', but that is quickly overshadowed by the education offered.
The academic program far exceeds any in the DISD. The student to teacher ratio is small and the students receive individual attention. The atmosphere is positive and the students are surrounded by a peer group that is motivated and has a desire to learn.
Excellent college prepatory school. Teaching is geared toward advanced placement tests. No sports; art and band programs are for the entire magnet center, not just the tag magnet.
This school was ranked number one on TEEP'S top 100 high schools in the United States of America. I recommend this school to anyone looking to persue in a medical career of any kind. The courses are very challenging and prepare students for college.
This is an incredible school. It has been ranked as the best school in DISD, and, as a sophomore at TAG, I feel that this school has wonderful students and teachers.
My son will be a senior at the Talented and Gifted Magnet High Scool in Dallas this coming school year. This was the best option for him as he is very bright and is adequately challenged by the AP Curriculum. The techers and staff are committed to the students, by being available both during the school year before and after school and during the summer for help with homework and summer independant study work. They are dedicated to the success of each student, focusing on the uniqueness of each individual and capitalizing on that for success. The staff and teachers know the students and their parents, and encourage parental involvement in all aspects of the students' activities.
