Talkington School For Young Women 5

We sincerely love Talkington School for Young Women Leaders. My daughter has the opportunity to not only enjoy the arts such as choir & piano but they also have a very dedicated robotics teacher. Mr. Rodriguez is amazing in getting girls so hyped about robotics and seeing the dedication Mr. Rodriguez puts into the program is so comforting to parents in knowing our girls are learning the tools to excel in a field that is mostly dominated by males. Mrs. Berta Fogerson is a wonderful principal and I am very confident all of our girls at Talkington get treated with respect and are given the tools for college preparedness and to develop their leadership qualities. I could go on and on about all of the teachers and coaches at Talkington but I will summarize by saying I am so very happy with our decision to have my daughter attending Talkington and love how safe we feel knowing she is safe at the school and no drama issues.

Going to talkington was the best decision I have made. The teachers are great with the students and help them with anything. The principal is very kind but firm. The students are friendly and very welcoming. It was not hard making friends here at all.
