My experience at Longwood Preparatory Academy was very good. I loved how connected my teachers were with me and how hard they would try to push the students to do better and excel pass our limits. Everyone in our community knows each other, even the most timid and quiet people will be involved socially. My school helps us find opportunities to help us find our career if we do not know what it is yet by providing us with jobs and internship to see what field would interest us the most. I feel like even after I graduate I will still want to visit my HighSchool and help them in anyway I can.

Longwood Preparatory is a school that offers many opportunities for the scholars. From job opportunities, college now courses to being able to travel to different countries to do community service. It has helped me grow into a better person and evolve into greater.
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.
