    "This school is a very good school. I am a student who goes there and enjoys it . The teachers there are very kind, loving, and supportive. They have gave me lots of knowledge threw the years I have been there. Mrs. James has very wonderful leadership skills. I adore Mark Twain Elementary School and I kno your children will too."

    "Horrible school, to much racism. I finished changing my child from there bcus they wanted 2 put my child in esp edu after the pediatrician & psychology found nothing & the grades of my child is A & 3B. I also found parents with the same problem, somes they need it & some others don't. Humm! I don't know why... but it make me think about the $benefits$ that the government give to the schools to diagnose each student with any disability. This is not fair. I pay much $ in the Dr for nothing... and the weirdest thing is that the problem started suddenly, after my child spent several years in this school."

    "This is a wonderful school for children! The principal and assistant principal are very active and are extremely caring. Parents see them on a daily basis outside with the students in the morning and afternoon as they go out of their way to ensure that students make it to school safely and make the most of their education. The school is very persistant in enforcing a strict homework schedule; they also offer plenty of rewards to get students motivated. The faculty is very good at sending home newsletters and other notes to make sure that all parents understand what their student is encompassing at school. There are also a few helpful meetings for parents throughout the year enabling them to learn how they can help their children excel in reading. I transferred my son to this school 2 years ago and have been very happy with my decision."
