This school has many problems. The teachers are callous and do not seem to care about their students. They favor rote memorization and and unthinking obedience over critical and creative thinking. The academic instruction is short-sighted and focuses more on preparing students to do well on the standardized tests than helping them gain a serious and thorough understanding of the material. Long is a place where students that stay quiet and obey orders without thinking are rewarded, while students who think for themselves and ask questions are stigmatized. Technology is used, but it mostly serves to replace teacher instruction time instead of helping students understand the material. Long does have lots of the newest materials and a large budget, but their instruction methods and overall culture is one that discourages independent thinking, critical thinking, and creativity.

Generally a below average school. Not many large problems; but lots of small ones that quickly add up, and not many redeeming qualities. The main building is kind of derelict: the rooms that do have air conditioning are cold enough that students have to wear jackets year round, and the rooms that do are hot near the beginning and end of the school year. The administration is also very pushy and rude when you point things out. I could write a whole page on my issues with this school, particularly with the administration, but I think you get the idea.
Very good educators, very supportive parents. Our kids had a good experience. Of course there are things I'd change, but overall well run, high quality curriculum.
