Mark Twain is an excellent school. The faculty and staff strive to make learning a great experience for the children. I want to thank all of them for thier hard work and dedication.
I was largely disappointed in this school, it's teachers and staff. When I enrolled my son for first grade, he was placed with one teacher. But they had more children enrolled for first grade than they had planned for, so each of the three teachers were able to choose which children they wanted to keep in their class and which ones they wanted to be placed in the 'new' class. Since it was my sons first year attending and the teacher did not know him, my son was designated for the 'new' class. Because each of the three teachers were able to 'get rid of' the children they already knew to be 'problems', the 'new' class they created was extremely disruptive and could not provide a safe and/or structured learning environment. There was not a lot of parental involvement and I never got the impression anyone really cared.
Mark Twain elementary had the program called raising readers was very interesting and good info for parents how to help kids reading at home. I would like to go to those programs more in the near future . I was actually suprised with the raising readers progrgam that we went in October. I like the cleaniness of the school although picking up the kids after school was a little challenge because small parking lot at loading area for parent. School lunch time is short for students to finish their lunch, my opion is students had enough food but not enough time to eat so they can have enough energy for afternoon studying. Also, it's also help to make parent to feel more welcome in the classrooms or shool so they can get involve in school activities because 11 members in PTA is very low count.
