Twain Elementary School
Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

Posted January 31, 2016

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.

Twain Elementary School
Amount of homework: Just right

Posted January 31, 2016
- a parent
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.


Twain Elementary School
Develops grit: Strongly agree

Strongly agree is chosen here because it is not the fault of the school that the "every kid gets a trophy" mindset prevails in society. Children are encouraged to reach their potential and the school embraces the fact that not everyone can be a math or reading "rock star".

Develops respect: Strongly agree

Respect is integrated directly into the school's P-A-W-S behavior intervention support and strategy. Kids are rewarded in accordance with their ability to adhere to the standards and rules.

Twain Elementary School
Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Strong integration of special needs students into regular classrooms gives kids early introduction to the adaptations that others may need in order to acclimate to environments that would otherwise present great challenge.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

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.

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