    "I think you should know that my school is a very caring and rigorous academic school for grades prek-8. Our staff experiences range from 3-35 years. Every Student achieving academic success is our main goal. We need some extra financial assistance to help us to continue to grow and provide each child a great education!"

    "My son has been in the Pre-K program for 3 years at Talcott. He has sensory processing disorder, and due to the amazing teachers, and special ed program, he is thriving! My daughter was enrolled in our parochial school and was recently told she could not be accommodated for her Apraxia of Speech. She had a chronic illness, Graves disease, most of 2013 and finally had major surgery to remove her thyroid. When we were told she would need to leave her previous school, Talcott's principal Mrs. Olimpia Bahena, was able to transfer her within a few days. Since then our daughter is getting the special ed she needs. Her teachers, classmates and the rest of the Talcott family have welcomed her and made her transition amazing. There are so many activities available for the students and families. My daughter is in Girls on the Run and they even have a family cooking class with a volunteer chef, which is awesome. Talcott is a Fine Arts and Museum Academy, which brings music, drama and art into the classroom. The students also have an opportunity to visit museums, symphonies and other cultural field trips, multiple times a year."

    "Talcott Fine Arts and Museum Academy has proven to be a nurturing and organized educational environment for my children. Talcott's faculty, staff and parents care about the children and have found creative ways to use the limited resources of CPS, to immerse the students in positive cultural, artistic and educational experiences. Even children with learning disabilities have a chance to develop and learn according to the individual child's needs with the guidance of excellent teachers and special education professionals."

My kids are in PK and 3rd grade. The ladies in the office always seen to be helpful and nice. Keep up the good work Talcott Tigers."

    "This school is one of the hidden gems in our city. I think the principal does a great job of continually pushing the school to improve. The most noticeable way she does that is by making great hires. I have been so impressed with each new staff member we've received, including the full-time Specials teachers who are motivated and clearly love their job. We started 5 years ago in the English preschool with Ms. Torres who is organized and great at communicating with parents. We have since switched to the Spanish immersion track and I can not say enough good things about it. My first grader is now fluent in the language and reads and writes in Spanish as well! I have three children in the school, so we have gotten to interact with several teachers and my husband and I are always impressed. The teachers on the Spanish track are very collaborative and there is such a variety in the student's day. We are so glad we found this school!"
