Completely unprofessional behavior on behalf of the principle and office staff!! I would NEVER send my child to this school again!
In the review below, please forgive the inappropriate use of "it's" instead of "its". It certainly doesn't reflect well on the review of Twain if the parent doesn't know basic grammar!
I would recommend Mark Twain Elementary school to any parent with a child in K-5! The teachers go above and beyond for their students academically, make sure they receive the individual attention that is needed and created challenging academic programs. The principal also goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our children, teachers and parents are supported, and our students receive the best education they possibly can. I equally love the parent community Twain has. Our parents are involved and feel right at home at Twain. Our PTO is amazing and supports our kids, teachers and school more than I have seen at any other school in the state. I'm a proud Twain Parent and am confident my child is receiving the education and support she needs, and that will continually be built upon throughout her lifetime.
I am highly satisfied with the level of education going on at Twain elementary. I think there are things that they could improve to take in one step further but all in all its a pretty amazing school. Have had great success with teachers with one exception and our son is growing under his current instruction.
My daughter has been at Twain since kindergarten and she has received an excellent education. The school is older, not pretty and there are more colors of carpet than I care to see but the teachers and staff are excellent. Mrs. Ahlgren in the 3rd grade is amazing, she is caring and kind and connects with students in a rare way. She has a gift. My daughter has excelled this year thanks to her patience and excellent teaching. My daughter loves going to school.
The extended day kindergarten with Ms. Duncan is excellent, my daughter has made tremendous growth and loves her teacher. I have worked in the education field for years and she is by far one of the best teachers my kids have had. I would highly recommend Twain to all parents!
My daughter has only been there for two years, but I really like it so far. The kindergarten teachers are the best especially Mrs. Brotherton, I don t think we could have asked for a better teacher.
Mark Twain is a balanced school with a great reading program, average math program and average writing program. The teachers are overall young and enthusiastic. They have had principal turnover that has led to some lack of consistency which is now being rectified.
I have only recently become involved with this school, but have been impressed with the staff and the Principal. I am excited to see their focus on writing, and feel the young, energetic and committed staff really relate to kids.
I chose Twain because of the feeling I got when I first entered the building for a tour. Many students greeted me, and I felt a warmth right away. Twain meets the kids right where they are. The classes are small, and the staff is strong. They highlight 'peak performance' traits each month to let you know what they are working on. The parent involvement is huge and the principal is an excellent leader that is very visible. I feel lucky to be here.
