Longwood Central School District Reviews
I am a homeschooled student inside Longwood Central School District. I appreciated that they accomodated me for the PSAT, AP tests, and SAT. However, they will not allow any home-educated students in their district to participate in any activities whatsoever, including sports. They are missing out on a lot of potential talent, and they are destroying opportunities for homeschooled athletes to be recognized by higher education scouts.
Some teachers at the school are very good while others are extremely bad at teaching. The Honors/AP math teachers are really good at teaching the material, but most of the English teachers that I've had weren't that good. Overall though, I think I enjoyed my experience in Longwood and there are many different kinds of people here who you can connect and find things in common with. There's a large variety of clubs and organizations that you could join and you're practically guaranteed to find a group of people that you can become friends with if you really want to.
My experience has been well over all, I have admiration for their large selection of art courses and advanced courses as well. In the past, I've seen nothing but staff members work toward helping students achieve a better understanding with anything they've struggled with, whether is be with lessons, having to do with the particular class that teacher educates or in a general sense, social issues, issues at home, etc. A bond can be formed and a love for learning is highly encouraged. One wish I do have is with the trouble formed from the student population. The fact that the school has difficulty functioning without implementing security guards due to outbreaks of fights, more often than anything else, comes at a disappointment. By the experience any individual student has will rely on them and they're choices. If they choose to disregard the rougher strand of the student population and focus their energy on their educational growth they'll really enjoy themselves like I have.
