As a Talpa parent I feel the school environment is safe, the curriculum is competitive and the teachers are enthusiastic and devoted to the students. Students have a variety of sports to choose from throughout the year, as well as other clubs and extracurricular activities in which to be a part of. Parents are friendly and one always feels welcomed at the school especially when the Principal and Vice-Principal know all parents on a first name basis. I am exceptionally proud to have made the right choice for my childrens education.

I feel really good about the education my children are receiving a Talpa. The teacher are very helpful and available for the students and parents if needed. As a parent there are many different ways and opportunities to get involved in my children's learning as well as being a part of the Talpa family. Parents are very friendly with each other and other children, not just the ones in their child's classroom.

This is a Great Elementary school in Boyle Heights (East Los Angeles). School needs plenty of help with contributions and donations in giving these boys and girls a chance they deserve. If anyone is interested Talpa has a golf tournament in September.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
