The Ferguson-Florissant School District is committed to Excellence and Equity Everyday. This includes providing students with a safe and healthy environment. Mark Twain Student Support Center was developed to assist students who have exhibited behaviors that interfere with their ability to succeed in the traditional school setting. Students acquire prosocial skills that will enable them to re-engage and be successful in their home schools.
At the same time, academic instruction ensures that the learning process is uninterrupted. Mark Twain provides students with tools for success and support for personal development, opportunities to explore and practice alternatives to aggression in an environment that stimulates academic growth and the development of decision-making skills. Success of the students is determined by their ability to be re-engaged into their home-school population without recurrent conflicts.
A strong professional team including teachers, support specialists, special education personnel, and additional resources work intensively with the students to support them in achieving their goals. Mark Twain provides these services for Ferguson-Florissant students elementary grades 3-5, middle grades 6-8, and high school grades 9-12.
