10 Parent Reviews for Mark Twain Elementary School

Mark Twain is an AWESOME school! Dr Mossman is doing a great job making sure the teachers deliver the best instruction possible to our children. Twain's API has steadily increased. I applaud the entire Twain community for a job well-done! River Rafters Rock!

I really like Mark Twain. It is a smaller sized school in a pretty neighborhood. The staff work hard and the principal, Dr. Mossman, works even harder.

I just love this small, tight-knit little community. The teachers are so caring and wonderful, a great leader in our principal. The school is very well kept up, one of the best in the area. The kids are good kids, not a real mean one in the bunch. I am so lucky to have discovered Mark Twain. Lesa Fleetwood

My son is in his 4th year at Twain. In all that time I have believed that Twain has provided a quality education by excellent teachers.

This school is really great. I couldn't have asked for a better place to send my child. I think the teachers are very caring and they are easy to talk to. I think the principal is young and always seems to know what to say. My daughter loves Mrs. Gonzalez. She thinks she is pretty and fun.

Mark Twain is a good school. I think more parent involvement should be encouraged by allowing the parents to visit the classrooms and be involved in their children class activities. A parent-teacher conference should be scheduled at year end so parents are not left up in the air. Also, during open ...  Read more

I am very proud of the fact that my children go to this school. The boundaries for this school are the Camino Village housing division. I do not live in the boundaries and therefore I had to apply to have my children attend. If you have the opportunity to live in this small area then your kids are ...  Read more
