- a
This school has very poor leadership. Be aware of what is going on in your child's classroom if you chose to send your children there. I had to pull my children out.



- a
Every year I have had to address and issue with the principal and every year he has just brushed it under the rug. He can not be bothered with putting in any effort to resolve the problem, but instead is just difficult to reach. Absolutely horrible.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
All of the teachers fit well into the neighborhood school feel in this school. Teachers know their own kids well and have at least a cursory closeness with the children outside their class.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Grade appropriate homework and time requirements employed. There could be a greater focus on fundamental math and matching assigned homework to the cognitive abilities of the children. Giving a second grader an area problem makes little sense when they don't have a solid grasp of multiplication. Reading and writing are strongly supported with a solid curriculum.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
A great deal of focus spent teaching students to be respectful of one another. The kids come away with a sense of being able to put themselves in someone else's shoes.




- a
Great neighborhood school with supportive, friendly and caring teachers and staff. Love the sense of community prevalent within the school.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
For first grade the amount seemed very appropriate. Nothing too extreme, but reading together very encouraged.



- a
An ideal school - caring, talented staff, strong parent community, and a nice sized environment with many opportunities. Very pleased with our choice of school.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
My 6 year old had the most amazing, talented, and caring teacher I can imagine. Any concerns or questions are treated proactively. The school seems to aim to reach each student at their need level. I researched a number of nearby schools, and am confident we chose correctly.



- a
All three of my children attended Twain and I was completely pleased with the high level of education they received. It was evident that every teacher cared for his/her students and worked hard to meet their individual needs as best as possible. I would highly recommend Twain to any parent considering this school for their children. Twain has a high percentage of open-enrolled students which only attests to the high quality of education provided here.
