Tag Young Scholars Junior High School Reviews
Best of both worlds: Gifted program with Diversity
Tag Young Scholars offers the best G & T program with the diversity for the future. Our child is passionate about his education and prepared to compete with the best and well rounded to get along with people of all races. Look at the population makeup in NYC and in the US in a few years. Mayor Bloomberg visited this year, I predict the current or future President will visit soon.
Tag Young Scholars Junior High is a great school, great teachers and faculty.
My elder daughter entered Tag Young Scholars four years ago in kindergarten, and my younger daughter entered kindergarten there two years ago. We have been extremely impressed by the teaching staff, academics and enrichment courses that are offered, ranging from archeology to Medieval art to robotics. Tag is a gifted and talented public school and I feel confident that the work they've done will insure that my daughters are well suited to master the curriculum at any competitive public or private school when they graduate.
This school is challenging and has a good curriculum. We have classes more than once a week and our teachers are always reviewing things with us.
My child started Kindergarten at TAG this past September. Within this short time his reading skills have improved so dramatically that I just shake my head in disbelief now when he reads to me. His teachers and the staff there make him feel welcome every time he walks in the door. The new website, tagscholars.com, is very helpful. There was not much information on them in the past and I was unsure about sending me son there. I am so glad I did. The parent body is motivated and it seems that this year there are big changes coming to improve our school. The 5th graders meet with their book buddy in Kindergarten once a week to read with them. It has made the transition into being around older kids so easy for the little ones. And the 5th graders are so respectful and patient with them. Such a smart idea on behalf of the staff. This school is really putting itself on the map!
