Frequently Asked Questions
Why Should My 11th Grader be tested for TAG?
TAG courses offered to students at RHS provide opportunities to explore a topic of interest with depth over time, to work with intellectual peers and professionals in a discipline, and to engage in creative thought and production in real-world settings. The most popular TAG offerings for 12th graders at Roswell are Gifted Career Internship and Directed Study. Both options allow for areas of study beyond a typical academic class and demonstrate to colleges that your student has engaged in academic enrichment.
