  • I have had two children go through Tewinkle and I think it is an outstanding school. I have another child that will be going to Tewinkle in the near future. The staff is what makes the school so special, and we really like the Principal too. He is easily approachable and really cares about the school. My two older children are in high school now and are in all AP classes and doing fantastic. Thank you Tewinkle
