TAGOS is a fully Project-Based school for grades 7 through 12. Almost all projects are designed and initiated by the students themselves. TAGOS has double the rate of students with disabilities compared with the rest of the Janesville district, and many of its students struggled with grades and truancy in the traditional setting before they came to the charter school.
We were very impressed with TAGOS. Students were empowered in their own education, they were highly motivated, and willingly spoke to us in detail about their projects with outstanding communication skills. The charter middle school will borrow ideas from many schools, and TAGOS will certainly be one to imitate. To learn more, visit http://www.tagosleadershipacademy.org/.
