WHY TAG?

The TAG program is designed to provide appropriate educational opportunities to students who demonstrate gifted characteristics. Here are some of the benefits of the TAG high school model:

  • TAG content classes are limited to 26 students.

  • TAG classes are taught by teachers with specific training in working with gifted students. 

  • Transcripts sent to colleges indicate that the student participated in Gifted Programming.

  • The student can request additional advisement with the gifted teacher focusing on academics, scheduling/class selection, and some college planning.

  • Additional TAG-only electives Directed Study and Internship offer more choice and personalized learning during the school day. 

  • Fun extras throughout the year engage students beyond their typical classwork. TAG provides fun opportunities like a visiting expert series, field trips, and seminars!
