This is my fourth year attending Long Trail and I can say with certainty that it has brought an incredible amount of growth upon me. The academics are extremely rigorous, especially the IB programme. Having many extracurriculars creates well-rounded students. Long Trail often gets a poor reputation for being a small "weird" school; however, I believe that the characteristics that bring these labels should be viewed as desirable and are what makes the community so special. My high school experience has been anything but "typical" but I would not change it for the world.

Great school community, rigorous course work, especially the highly enrolled IB program, excellent teacher-student bonds. The one major issue is the recent headmaster has made numerous changes that jeopardize the integrity and uniqueness of Long Trail.
I love how friendly everyone is, and the relationship with the teachers is amazing! We get treated like equals for the most part by the faculty. The arts programs of course are fantastic, with my favorite being the drama program. It also gives us a great academic opportunity through the International Baccalaureate programme. It's starting to outgrow itself though which is a shame; the smallness is what creates the familiar atmosphere!
