    "The classes aren't that bad if you just go through normally, but you have the opportunities to take some really difficult ones. Everyone here is a nerd, so the peer pressure makes you take as many advanced classes as you can. Some find this bad, but it definitely pushed everyone a lot harder than if they had chosen to just stay at their home school."

    "I feel so lucky to be a part of the weird, intense, and most importantly, supportive TAG community. Each teacher dedicates time and effort into their classes because of their genuine interest in what they're teaching and the success of their students. While the environment is competitive, it encourages your work ethic and teaches you how to overcome difficult situations. For every stressful night of studying for a test or spending hours on end doing homework, I better myself as a student and learn more about myself as a person. Everyone at the school is smart, but intelligence isn't measured on a 1-10 scale, and TAG teaches you to be humble because you're surrounded by interesting people with different skills and backgrounds than your own. Every day you can find something to appreciate, whether it's teachers bringing you cereal on test days or groups of students playing the kazoo while fighting with toy light sabers."

    "I liked how caring the teachers are. The principal and counselors are both very helpful. For example, Principal Mackey talks to the students every morning and asks how their weekend was or how their day is going. He really ensures that everyone is getting their job done, whether it be a student or a teacher."

    "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."
