    "Generally, the school was great and helped me a ton in preparation for college. The teachers are really motivated about teaching students and you can feel the love that they share. They are always there to help you and want to get to know you instead of just passing in and out of their class like ghosts. The students really get to know each other and help each other out especially before a test. The one thing that does need work is the college application/admissions process. I felt that I was missing great scholarships due to the lack of resources and the ineffectiveness of the process."

    "Academically rigorous, this school is filled with opportunities and challenges that continually matures students to become better people and citizens. Students are throughly prepared for college, and they are encouraged to take AP classes and other subject that are challenging. Majority of the teachers arrive early and are always ready to help their students in anyway possible. Because Townview TAG is a rather small school, there is a strong sense of family and community. Everyone knows each other, and students are more than just another face in the class or a name on a paper to our teachers. I love this school, and I couldn't image attending any other ."

    "TAG has been an incredible experience. I've received an insane amount of support from the staff and my fellow students. While the school is small, it really does make it feel like a family. I'm honored to be a part of such a close-knit passionate community."
