Mission & Goals


TSIS Tigers struggle with a purpose and fail forward. We find success through discovery and exploration.


Talbott STEAM Innovation School (TSIS) is a child-centered community, preparing students in a safe, respectful and collaborative environment, to be responsible citizens and lifelong learners, well-equipped with a strong academic foundation for the 21st century.


  1. We are an interdependent team of lifelong learners that includes parents, teachers, administrators, educational assistants, students, and community members.
  2. Our decisions are based on the best interests of students with the common goal of educating the whole child.
  3. Using data to drive instruction, research-based best practices, and differentiated instruction, we believe that all students are capable of success.
  4. Our communication is positive, solution-oriented, and respectful of individual differences.
  5. Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math (STEAM) will inspire students to solve authentic problems, work collaboratively with others, build real solutions (artifacts), and apply their skills beyond the classroom.
