Open Quote My son attends Talbott STEAM Innovation School. I have had the pleasure of being as involved as possible with the school, staff, and teachers. 2016-2017 is the second year for the current Principal and Vice-Principal. These two ladies are absolutely fantastic. They have made major changes and improvements in the school. I see the principal standing in the crosswalk on the coldest of winter days after school helping kids cross the street. They know each child personally. After talking with any of the staff, it's clear that they want what is best for each child and the community.
Talbott is officially a STEAM school. (science, technology, engineering, arts and math). They have many neat programs. Robotics Club, Lego Club, Hot Wheels Club...there are more, but I'm not familiar with all of them. There is also a community garden on campus that the kids can help tend.
I've been very happy with my experiences there so far. Close Quote

Open Quote Is this where you want your kid to go to school?
http://www.kktv.com/home/headlines/Gun-Picture-Gets-Boy-in-Trouble-260059701.html

A little boy is in trouble for a picture he drew as part of a school assignment.

Second grader Kody Smith was assigned to go outside, look at the clouds, and then use his imagination to draw what he saw.

"Draw a picture of what you see in the clouds from your imagination and that picture is a gun,” explained 8-year-old Kody.

Because it was a gun, the teacher at Talbott Elementary in Widefield called him into the office, and then filed a behavior report. His parents say that's too much.

“It hurts. It hurts that he was so scared for being penalized for his imagination,” said Kody’s father, Jeff Smith.

“He’s 8 years old. He was doing exactly what he was told to do for the assignment,” said Kody’s mother, Angel Rivers.

The report says Kody showed behavior that is disruptive to the entire learning community. The parents were worried that this would be on his permanent school record. The Widefield School District says it will not be.

D-3 also sent us this statement: “Our primary responsibility as a school district is to ensure safety of all staff, students and community. We exercised an age-appropriate reaction to an incident. The student's education was never disrupted nor is this incident on the student's permanent record. Our response was in line with routine procedures focused on school safety.” Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
