Banana Kelly High School is now named Longwood Prepatory Academy High School. I really enjoy attending this school. I like the fact that the Teachers, Principal and Assistant Principal know all the students by name. They take an interest in our lives in and out of school and they always help us out. The classroom sizes are small and the classes are interesting. The computer programs, such as Digital Design class, are great and offer certifications you can graduate with. Overall I feel this school is a great fit for me and it can be for others.

I really love Banana Kelly its not a bad school as a lot of people like to say it is. The teachers really are there for the students and try to help you as much as they can. When teachers see that you are not feeling/doing well they will talk to you to see if every thing is ok. Over all they make you feel like a part of a family. They also have many resources
