My husband and I considered putting our kids in a private school, but our children have been at Mark Twain for a while. We decided to stay because Dr. E. provides a 'private public' school environment, extra-curriculars, and quality of education.
Mark Twain is an exceptional school. The enrichment activities that are offered are second to none! Incredible staff, amazing parent participation and wonderful leadership from the principal. My child is lucky to have had such a great start to his education!
My daughter was actually in a magnet school in the district for grades 1-3. For many reasons, we moved her back to MT, our neighborhood school. The principal is phenomenal! He relates so well to the kids, greats everyone daily, knows everyone's name, and is extremely involved. My daughter loves to go to school and loves her teacher. This is in stark contrast to my previous experiences with her in school.
