Talbert (Samuel E.) Middle School 5

I have never had such great response from administration at a school for all the years my 3 children have attended schools: private and public. An issue arose with one of my kids this year. I brought it to the Administration and it was respectfully resolved within hours! So impressed! The principal and Asst P and staff are amazing, pro-active, involved and respected amongst parents and children alike! :) Wish all my kids had the experience of going here! Kudos FVSD for a great staff selection & kudos to Principal Ms Robinson for leading & maintaining such a great staff!

Talbert is a great school the teacher's are great espically ms.James (Best history teacher to get) and Mr. Howard (Funnist teacher ever!) I went there last year some of the kids were a little rude but overall it's a great school. If your having probelms with other kids and you talk to a teacher about it they'll actually try and do something about it.

Talbert is phenomenal. I have one student who graduated and another who just entered 6th grade. Mrs. Abdel and her staff provide a warm and caring atmosphere and they also have a great sense of humor with the kids. This age is tough but they do an excellent job making it feel like a family. I have never seen a school staff that so clearly enjoys each other and supports one another like the staff at Talbert. The teachers seem happy to be there which is a breath of fresh air and it rubs off on the kids. We love it here.

I think that the teachers and staff at the school are the finest around. They inspire and motivate the students to do the best they can and to go above and beyond. My 7th grade daughter has had the best two years there, and is at the top of her class!

We love Talbert. I have children in 3 different area middle schools and it is by far the best. The quality of teachers, education, social oppotunities, service, and high feel of community have all exceded our expectations. I wish that all my children had gone to Talbert and I plan on sending our younger children there. Talbert has been a safe place despite the fact that it's a middle school and that also recommends it. Way to go, Talbert!

This is my son's first year at Talbert Middle School. He is in the GATE program. I am continually impressed with the teachers, their enthusiasm and creativity in the classroom. The principal, Mrs. Abdel, is fanastic! She and her staff are positive and encouraging to all students. The real gem at this school is the Acitivites Director, Mrs. Clay, she is phenominal! We love Talbert.
