This is my kids' first year at Twitchell. I wanted to wait until I had experienced at least half of the year to write a review. I have a son in Kindergarden, and another in second grade. I will do whatever it takes to keep them here as it is by FAR the most amazing school I could hope for and I'm very hard to please when it comes to my kids. I kept pulling my kids out of schools, moving, and homeschooling before Twitchell. Now I can rest. I love the director, I love the teachers, and I love the other moms who volunteer because their love runs deep for their students and families!
We have been very pleased with Twitchell in the 3 years that our child has attended. Instruction has been fantastic but the 2nd grade teacher does not provide parents with tools to ensure that homework is being done. The teacher said that she chooses not to use the parentlink web portal, chooses not to do homework packets and instead relies on the children to be organized. This is a crucial time where children are really developing their time management and organizational skills. I feel like this teacher did not live up to our expectations from Twitchell. We had three parent/teacher conferences to try and work through the issue with the teacher. If there was another month left in the school, we would have brought the principal into the conversation. I remember getting a survey about the teacher last year but I didn't get one this year. I can't see what the future holds for third grade, still excited about the wonderful staff at Twitchell.
My family and I absolutely LOVE this school. It has been the best year so far in the 12 years I have dealt with schools. Mrs. Brimhall went above & beyond always with my child, she deserves an award! Even though Leticia in the front office was the ONLY one ever friendly to us every time we had questions we still had an overall great experience here. Thank you!
I have unsuccessfully toured dozens of schools, looking for another Twitchell. Nothing compares to the quality of the staff here. Count your blessings if you can be a part of such a caring and inclusive school! Our bus driver was marvelous, our teacher a gem, and the assistants were top notch. Shout out to Miss K and MissE ( : Our family moved but we'll never forget this little school.
Coming from a private school. We are very pleased with the quatily of learning techniques and the educators. I am very proud to be a Twitchell parent.
Best ever school my son could go to. My son thoroughly enjoyed the school and was unable to come to terms when I asked him to move. The best ever public school
Outstanding school! Art, Music, and P.E. teachers are absolutely amazing! They get every child involved in a fun way! My son's classroom teacher is also wonderful! Administration gets an A+ from me! My son is challenged and we love this school!
Absolutely amazing principal and some downright amazing teachers that have made learning a delight for my daughter. I can only imagine what work the principal has to accomplish, yet she has made us feel as though we are the only family she has to work with. Parents are highly involved here. The art teacher gets an A+, and, well... I could go on and on. It is obvious that this school is run professionally yet, it feels like home.
You get a private school education at a public school. The administrators and teachers are outstanding. I couldn't be happier at twitchell.
I attended 16 years of school sent my children to school and sent my grandchildren to Neil Twitchell. In all those years I have never been involved in a more organized, high scholastic, teacher caring school. I am only saddened that we had to move away. I believe my children were extremely blessed to have been a small part of this marvelous school.
We have lost 70% of our Teachers this year! Three of them were Teacher of the Year and they left because of the Administration. We need new people here!
I moved from Phoenix, and was worried about the level of education here in Clak County, but Twitchell has been a pleasent suprise. My daughter looks forward to school each day and I feel that the school and the other parents all have a vested interest in each child.
This school is fantastic. Mrs. Smith is an outstanding principal and the teachers here are all caring, concerned, and compassionate. My children look forward to school every single day.Thank you to everyone at Twitchell!!!
