Twain was better than most middle schools in my community. There were many great teachers and faculty.

Spent K-8 here and I'm glad did not go to school elsewhere. I loved most of my teachers and I still like to catch up with them when I volunteer. I really appreciated the music/art program they offered. I received a great education from Mark Twain and I highly recommend this school.
The teachers here made you feel smart. They didn't just teach you and gave you homework, but they interacted with us, showing they cared for us.
