this is an awesome school. the teachers are great there especially dr. gilbert. she truly cares about her students and is willing to help her students whenever they need it. other teachers in the 8th grade also do a good job. my child is not in advance classes but her teachers teach with rigor and have great expectations for her that it does not bother me much that she is not in ac classes. i would recommend tapp....hands down
