The "tag wall" is a reserved space for students of the month. Each month teachers vote for 2 students. Administration does not vote, unless there is a tie in the votes. Teachers take into account the whole child when voting. This includes but is not limited to how each student adheres to the In"10"sity principles: compassion, accountability, desire, effort, time, determination, respect, initiate, victory and esteem.
After the students have been selected they receive a baseball cap as a symbol of their "crowning" achievement for the month, have their picture taken for the student of month wall and "tag" the wall to the entrance of the school. The "tag" consists of the student's initials and the initials remain on the wall for the entire year.
