    "I have to unfortunately differ with most of the opinions of Mark Twain for specific reasons. I sent my daughter there for 2 years, and she has ADHD. There needed to be very small accommodations for her, as she was under a 504. The principal never made any changes that were written down, nor the teacher, or helped improve her education, and she was not learning, literally, anything. She completely fell through the cracks. I had meeting after meeting and there was all talk, yet nothing shown. She just needed a little extra, and this was never done. A good school for a completely typical student, yet not at ALL for an out of the box thinker, a child who is creative and thinks differently, and especially not for a child who has any kind of learning difference. Even as small as ADHD."

    "This school is more than great! The education is in a very high level and the kids are in really good hands. All the personal is caring and respectful. The principal has an unfrequent level of commitment and has the best disposition to keep the school at the level the students deserve. The literature program is the gem of the school. The kids in this school love reading and writing and they are encouraged to do so. Great Fine Arts program as well and very nurtured library!"

    "One of the best schools! The principal is very much in touch and dedicated to the school's well being. Kids are well cared and overall development is stressed upon, not just test scores. I have had very good experience whenever I needed to talk to anybody. It is a school that is both academically good as well as with a personal touch - a combination rare to find."

    "My school is the best in Houston! The only drawback is the temporary buildings as the more and more families move into the area and just to send their kids to Twain. Great as a literary magnet and IB school."
