Talahi Community School does an outstanding job supporting students with learning and attention issues! We have a wonderful staff of regular and special education teachers who offer a great balance of experience and enthusiasm for alternative learners. We are a pilot site for the AIM project, where serious consideration is given for students who struggle with access to print in core content areas. Our district has sponsored training on topics such as AIM Navigator, IEP documentation for AT consideration and how to follow up with training in AT with students, parents and staff. We strive to support all student learning needs through the use of technology, so children with learning and attention issues who benefit from the use of technology do not appear any different from their peers.

My son is in 1st Grade and attends Talahi Community School. Talahi is a wonderful school. The teachers are fabulous! I have not met a more dedicated staff who truly care about the success of the students.
