    This school has a history of labeling children as disabled related to behavioral difficulties during a parental divorce. Although there are a few members of the staff that are great the negative effects overall are not worth it.

    We are a military family and have lived everywhere. We have a child with a learning disability and various special needs. Mark Twain was the most amazing school in helping our child accomplish his full potential. We have struggled for years with schools. The teachers and staff at MTS stepped up and did whatever they could to help and find solutions to help our child. We will really miss this amazing school.

    We have a child with a learning disablity that we pushed for 2 years to get some help with. Mark Twain was very unresponsive to our requests. We have left this school. Beware a few of the teachers are very unprofessional.
