R.A. Long High School Reviews
I moved to RA Long just before my sophomore year, and it was easily the best change that could of happened to me. The culture, the staff, the coaches, the people really made me come out of my shell and changed me for the better good. Being at this school pushed me beyond my limits and I reached new levels from encourage of the staff and the students. Every staff member really does truly care about the students and helps them do better. The principles makes sure to greet each and every student in the mornings and sees how they're doing. Coaches are always there to help their athletes improve physically and as a leader. The only downside is the fact some students like to vandalize the restrooms.
I enjoy how every single teacher in the building cares for their students. All the teachers go above and beyond to help their students in any way that will benefit their success. With the vast variety of clubs and sports offered, any student it bound to find something that they are passionate and want to get involved in. Staff at R.A.Long highly encourage student involvement towards the school in any way. Unlike any other school I have attended, the administration is constantly walking around classes and checking up on students.
Robert A Long has taught me a great many things, my school taught me how to be responsible and confident in my choices, which is personally very important to me. RAL taught me the importance of my future which was always a struggle for me, mostly because of my living situation and the people around me. In the middle of 10th grade I joined AVID which is a Advancement Via Individual Determination, this class gave me the opportunity to make friends and focus on college and to make sure I have everything I need to graduate and get into the college of my choice and it was the greatest choice I ever made, something that I would never regret choosing.
