TAG Program

Program Description

TAG is an accelerated, highly advanced program for those students demonstrating an above-average aptitude and a developmental readiness to be challenged.  The program provides rigorous, above grade-level instruction in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.  Coursework for high school credit is also available in Math (Grade 7 & 8) and Science (Grade 8).  The teachers work closely together to provide interdisciplinary opportunities and challenges to the students. 

 

Meigs Middle School also recognizes the importance of community service and civic duty.  For this reason, it is incumbent upon our most successful students to make a positive contribution in the community in which we live.  In addition to the rigorous coursework in all four core subjects, TAG students will also participate in a community service component.  Under the mentorship of the TAG teachers, and as a grade-level cohort, students will research the needs of our community and choose a year-long community service project.  This may require time outside of school hours and/or transportation to an off-campus locations, depending on the nature of the chosen project.  The results of this service will be honored at the end-of-year Academic Awards Ceremony.

 

Eligibility

Twenty two students will be selected for each grade level.  Admission will be based on FSA scores, end of year grades, and teacher recommendations.  Administration, Guidance, and TAG teachers will review FSA results, final grades and teacher recommendations in June.  Students will be notified of TAG placement in July.  Due to the changes in the program admission process, current TAG students are not guaranteed future placement.

 

TAG students are expected to have a minimum of the following: 

  • Level 4 or 5 on 2017 FSA Reading and Math
  • Final grade of “A” or “B” in all core subjects in 2017
  • Regular and consistent school attendance
  • Strong teacher recommendations for work ethic, ability to work with others, communication skills, and citizenship.
