The School for the Talented and Gifted (TAG) - English Curriculum

School for the Talented and Gifted

A typical TAG student takes English 1 Pre-AP as a freshman, English 2 Pre-AP as a sophomore, AP English Language and Composition as a junior, and AP English Literature and Composition as a senior.

The Texas Education Agency mandated that all TAG students in Texas must submit an “Exit-Level Project” during their senior year.

This project requires finding a mentor in the community, researching and developing the project, and submitting the finished project to a set of judges at the state level. The projects are graded on a “1” to “5” scale, with “5” being the highest.

The student must score a “3” or higher to graduate with a “TAG” endorsement on their diploma. TAG’s Independent Study English course is this exit-level project. In addition to the required courses, students have choices of the following electives: Debate and Humanities (World Studies/Philosophy).
