Longmeadow High School Reviews

I went here half day for four years, I attended a cosmetology class at another high school for the other half. Lhs had almost no diversity, maybe there was 50 nonwhite students in the school. The counselors were only trained to discuss colleges with students, if you were interested in another career path they would most likely just tell you you should be applying for colleges no matter what. This approach may work for many of the students who came from rich families but they should at least have knowledge of other options besides college. Although there was an amazing career training program available they barely ever mentioned it. Most of the teachers were very liberal and would teach their personal opinions as if they were facts. The administration clearly favored certain groups of students over others. The only positive thing I can say about this school was I was able to go to a great school therapist once a week for free.. she was amazing!

As everyone mentioned, excellent music and athletics. But if you don't fit into those categories, LHS does not foster other interests. Teaching is good though. Students get very little help from guidance about career options and they do not set students up with opportunities to explore. The least they could do is hire a teacher of color to help with diversity and update the curriculum to teach students about more global issues (from a non-white perspective). They also NEVER ask for feedback. LHS is good for white families with a good network, but really needs an update for the modern/diverse world.
Longmeadow High School is a great educational opportunity for anyone who attends, allowing students to learn about new topics they never thought they would and explore classes of their choosing to spread their interests. The teachers provide work that engages students individually and in groups, and they allow their students to challenge themselves while enjoying their learning. To change, I believe that more health science courses should be added as well as more diverse classes like the American Music History class.
