Longmeadow High School is a very good environment for competitive students. The student body alone creates a culture of competition. The college prep level teachers are often really helpful. The honors and AP courses are difficult, time consuming, and tiring. However, those who wish to excel do succeed when they work hard. I would say that hard work pays off in difficult classes. The English department encourages students to improve their writing. The math department is also really helpful and does a tremendous job in thoroughly teaching all levels of math. While the teaching style of some teachers may not fit some of the students, many teachers are willing to stay after to help. However, some teachers can be short with students and intimidating. For those who do not prefer a very competitive environment, Longmeadow High School is very challenging and daunting.

Longmeadow High School is, in many ways I’m sure, a generic, suburban, predominantly white high school in a pleasant and affluent New England town with no shortage of bright, determined, conscientious, and hard-working students. While the academics are rather rigorous, I would say that the expectations from students could be a bit higher, especially considering LHS’s reputation in the area. There is also a general sense among the students that one needs to “escape” LHS to truly be oneself—I’m sure this is a problem common to most schools, but perhaps at LHS we feel pinned down somewhat by the competition and pressures we feel all around us. Overall, it’s a great school with plenty of awesome students and staff members, but I certainly think it can do a tad better culture-wise. It’s still trying to kick that 1950s White America vibe in a sense, although that’s an exaggerated way to put it.
Longmeadow has an outstanding reputation for excellent academic performers! This can be attributed to the administration, physical plant and the students.
