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.
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.
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.
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.
