This school is wonderful! Probably the best principal I have ever had the pleasure of knowing! I was even wanting to move, but an a little apprehensive due to how close my son is with her! Whenever we have has challenges academically I feel that the entire staff is trying to help the kids in any way that they can, and it is always a very positive atmosphere. parents are encouraged to stop by and have lunch, or just say hi if they want! We love this elementary school!

Best elementary school in Fort Zumwalt. No other school comes close. The principal is fantastic. Very supportive of student needs.

Great school. The new principal is doing a fantastic job! The district could use a new superintendent and a shake-up at central office.

Twin Chimney's is the only elementary school in the entire school district that is actually doing what it's supposed to be doing despite the fact the district has had the same poor superintendent forever and the current assistant superintendent only hires her "friends".

Great school...teachers are great, great PTO. My concern is with the growing class sizes. They seem to grow every year.

Simply an outstanding school. All of our children have attended the school since it opened in 1993 and we have loved it.

Wonderful school! The teachers and parents really make it a community school. Many opportunities to be as involved as you want to be. Teachers really believe in partnering with parents to provide the best education for your child.

My family moved from another state. The staff was very welcoming from the very beginning. On our 2nd visit, the Asst. Principle not only knew my name, but the names of both of my children! The kids are both very happy with their teachers! They are soaring as in their learnings!

My daughter has gone to kindergarten and 1st grade at Twin Chimneys and has loved it! She has been involved, excelled in her learning experience, and the teachers are really good at keeping the parents and kids informed on what is planned and expected of the kids. It has really been a great experience so far.

My daughter just completed Kindergarten at Twin Chimneys and loved it. It was a wonderful experience! Her teacher was organized and kept in great communication with the parents throughout the entire school year. There were lots of ways to get involved even for a working-outside-the-home mom like me. I highly recommend this school!
