Longwood High School Reviews

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.

Longwood High School is a school where you will find a group of friends no matter what. The diverse population along with the huge number of clubs and activities will ensure that you find a place where you belong and enjoy yourself. Although there may be a lot of different things going on at once, you can count on the entire school bonding together at football games and other events. Most school days consist of simple quarrels or even physically violent fights. The students can sometimes get disrespectful towards the staff and roam the halls even when class is in session. There have been many instances where the police had to be brought in for investigation. Although the AP students remain at the top in the entire vicinity of Long Island, the students that remain at the bottom of the class (grade-wise) are reluctant to attain education and better themselves. MAll in all, this school is not the best, but it is not the worst either.
Overall my experience at Longwood High School has been pretty great. Over the past four years I've had my ups and downs with teachers and peers but the school has a good way of helping students when in need. Most teachers here are good at teaching to each students way of learning and are very helpful when needed. However like all places not everything is all sunshine and rainbows. I've had my fair share of bad teachers who truly can't teach, control a class, or are just flat out rude. Also in the beginning of my freshman year I struggled with friends and was in a very bad mental state but with the help of guidance counselors and the growing bond between my teammates on cross country and track I was able to get out of my bad head space.
