Alex W Spence Talented/Gifted Academy Ratings & Reviews

I am a parent of a 6th grade TAG student. I had high hopes for this school, but am realizing many issues. They have no text books so when my student comes home to do homework, there is nothing to reference which makes it difficult to help when help is needed. Parents are 100% relying on the parent portal to keep tabs on grades and progress and little to no communication comes home form the school or teachers. It's difficult to get information from anyone. The first parent conference I had I almost left in tears because the teachers were accusatory in their tone towards me regarding my student's school habits and took offense when I asked questions regarding their teaching habits. There also seems to be animosity between the TAG kids and the community kids which causes a lot of problems. From the stories I am told, the community kids resent the TAG kids and single them out antagonistically in some cases. Two incidents directed at my student specifically have me considering looking at other schools for next year. I'm not really feeling like the TAG program here is what it's hyped to be. My student could do just as well in the GT program at Franklin Middle School.

One of the best schools in the Dallas area. The teachers are dedicated and really love working with the students. Unlike some of the magnet schools in Dallas, it is part of a neighborhood middle school so the students have access to all the sports, music, and clubs that a traditional school has to offer. My son was academically challenged and loved going to school. I had ample opportunity to get involved in things going on at school. They went on 5 field trips each year, there is a parent organization that supports the TAG program and regular PTA. We had a great experience!
