    "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. She goes out of her way to assist parents in many aspects. She even tracks kids into middle school, high school and college. This is a leader we should all want our children to experience. I am amazed she knows all the kids names! She makes coming to Mark Twain enjoyable. You can never find her in the office. You have to look on the recess yard or at valet or in the cafeteria. She even runs with the kids. I think she should be recognized for her contributions to the Lawndale/Gardena community. I am not sure how we lucked out to get her at our school - I know she was at Anderson and Roosevelt before coming to Twain. Dr. Mossman is wonderful"

    "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. With the addition of Dr. Mossman as principal, I believe that that quality has been further enhanced. Dr. Mossman doesn't so much think outside the box as rebuild it. Since her arrival, she has encouraged and has been pivotal in the expansion of the events that the school and PTA sponsor, such as a carnival, book fair and student store. These may not be new events to other schools, but I had not seen them at Twain before Dr. Mossman arrived. The significance of these events is that they create school pride in the student body and encourage participation from parents. Add to that the continuing improvement of Twain's API score, and the future is looking good."

    "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."
