this school is very old, No Air conditioner in the school, the front door isn't locked so any stranger can walk inside freely. i wish the school district would renew all the equipment for the classes, because the tables look all scratched, or at least paint them.

Tarkington is one of the best elementary schools. I have been a parent of this school for the past 5 yrs and have never seen such wonderful and caring teachers. The whole staff is terific and my children look forward ot going every day!

Tarkington School is Awesome! My son has received very close attention from his teachers since second grade. All his teachers are very experienced and very disciplined. We've been very pleased in all aspects of tarkington school (ie: teachers, principal, participation, welcomeness, discipline/enforcement, rewards/incentives, activities, challenge, parent involvement,and opportunities for children. It's our third year here, and I do not have a single complaint yet. Next year we will go back to California, and we will definitely miss this school.

Tarkington is a great school. My two children have been a part of the Tarkington learning community for five years. The teachers are really committed to the students and making sure that they recieve everything to enhance thier learning potential. The parents are actively involved in the PTA and there are many family and student activities planned during the year. The staff is dedicated to Tarkington and many have been there 30 years before retiring. The staff also continually updates their skills and many have earned masters degrees.
