Longwood High School is part of a school district in which students have a variety of choices in terms of classes, clubs, and sports. Longwood promotes both the STEM field through its internship opportunities and the Arts through its music programs, art honor societies, and multi-media classes. Longwood offers a multitude of different clubs from fitness clubs, to improvisational music jam sessions, to book clubs and cartooning lessons. While Longwood offers these opportunities, some of them, especially travel related activities, are unavailable to students from low income families. Opportunities such as Longwood Travels, Princeton Model Congress, and the annual Comicon trip are unattainable for some students. Even the yearbook and the prom are beyond what some families can pay. There is a clearly cut socioeconomic division that I wish the school could bridge together. At the very least, I wish for aid to be provided to students who rely on lunch waivers.
In Longwood High School there are many things that could be improved. Such as faculty training, lunch flexibility and construction. For example, some teachers are great at teaching but fail to create a good connection with their students. Others don't teach so well or even at all and have an okay connection with their students. Sometimes the teachers can even be unfair and that is not okay on the students behalf. As for the "construction" many times i have seen leakage issues or just little things that look like it's been abandoned. I believe the school should be a clean and safe environment for the students to learn at. Now, when it gets to the spring/summer times it gets horrifically hot in the school and it makes it harder for students to concentrate. Lunches are great but more love and flavor should be added, if the school can put in extra money for certain events then I think they should be able to make the school lunches better and more enjoyable for the students as well.
So far, my experience for the most part has been positive. I stay focused and disciplined and my teachers have made themselves available for questions I may have. Needs a stronger guidance counselor though. My mother appreciated her directing us to FAstWeb.com for scholarships but there must be additional things counselors can do. Not enough involvement.
