    Love Mrs. Butts. Phenomenal teacher! Great school! Excellent start to a new school experience for my six year old daughter. My daughter is already reading and it's due to such a great teacher and school. Overall above average school.

    Talbot is a place where students are inspired. The staff is more than a staff they are a team and they are quick to welcome parents and students. My child is most certainly fortunate to attend a school that has struck the balance between rigor and individualized instruction. From Mr. Oates to the youngest kindergartener- Talbot is fantastic!

    The quality of the academic programs are superior. My son's teacher this year Mr. Ryan has made learning fun and interesting. There is a lot of material they need to cover so they work at a fast pace. The entire staff is dedicated and committed to ensuring the students are receiving a good education. They have a great MCAS tutoring program for the fourth grade as well as a musical show each year the students can sign up for after school. The parent council is very active and provides many opportunites for the students and parents to enjoy the school year. We have been very pleased with our experience at Ralph Talbot.
