History of TAGOS

TAGOS began with a planning committee made up of community members, teachers, local business and government officials, and parents. The initial funding for the school came from the state of Wisconsin in the form of a planning grant. Funds from the planning grant were used to visit model project-based schools in the United States. Members from the planning team visited schools in San Diego, CA, Appleton, WI, Sante Fe, NM, and Henderson, MN. The team believes that what we have developed at TAGOS Leadership Academy represents the best practice in project-based learning.

TAGOS opened its doors to 36 students, 2 advisors and a building secretary in the beginning of the 2007-2008 school year. At this time we were awaiting the completion of construction at ArrowPark, formerly Parker Pen. For the first semester we occupied a rental building on Main Street in Janesville, WI. Space was tight. We had to use the parking lot for ‘circle time’ and made due the best we could. On December 23, 2007, TAGOS began its occupancy at Arrow  Park.

Today TAGOS is home to 64 students, 4 advisors, a student services specialist, 2 aides, and a building secretary.  Students who were struggling in the traditional schools are now flourishing in a project based learning environment.
