This school is by far the best school in the state! It's truly are a superior school. The staff is excellent and the administration is very supportive and student oriented. Moving from Wilmington I was worrried about the lack of private choices in the southern part of the state, but i feel that my son is receiving a private education for free!
I LOVE this school. The staff and teachers are so caring and are so dedicated to the students. We were in the Cape district and had so many problems with teachers not truley caring about our child or her needs. She was not learning a thing there. We are so grateful that we school choiced to Long Neck!
i was a past student to this school. my mom is now a subsitute there so im in the school pretty often. over the years it has excelled and each grade has there own things to do and at the end of the year every student had been given the best education and year ever, they easily combined work with fun activites and they try and make the school a more hands on place. i rate it full stars and i will fully support them
I personally have been involved in the Long Neck Elementary School for the past 7 years. My son and daughter have had the most pleasurable learning experience with the administrators, teachers and the staff. I can honestly say that the Long Neck Staff does care about their children in a way that an elementary school should.They make it a fun place for the kids to learn. As far as the DSTP, the kids know it is an important test, but the staff does not stress them out about it, they just ask for the kids to do their best! The PTO is great too! They encourage parent participation all the time. Every month they do something for the kids.It's not surprising that they are a 'superior' school!I almost hate to see my youngest child leave there!
I am a current 5th grade student that goes to LN. When I moved from California, I was afraid of what to expect at a new school.The staff at LN really helped me excell in everything I do. I am overall impressed with Long Neck Elementary!
My experience at Long Neck Elementary has been wonderful. Finding the right fit for a child with special needs can be quite challenging. Since enrolling at this school, I have seen my child grow in leaps. I could not be happier. And it's not just the staff, the kids are really great too. My child is learning and is happy. I find the environment at LN to be caring, respectful, and focused on learning. I looked at other schools, private and public, and I believe that I have found the best choice available for my child.
I am the grandmother of a child that was pulled out of another school in the district when she was in third grade because the emphasis on the DSTP was so stressful in that building. My granddaughter was enrolled at Long Neck, thrived at Long Neck and did very well on the DSTP at Long Neck. The staff at LN seem to have a way of acknowledging the importance of the DSTP to their students without burdening them with unnecessary stress. This is evidenced by LN being chosen a Superior School by the state of Delaware two years in a row! The administrators and staff are wonderful, the curriculum is well rounded, there are many extracurricular activities and LN has a very active PTO that enhances the learning atmosphere in the building by hosting many academic and fun programs and activities. I plan to enroll my grandson at LN next year!
No overly impressed with the school. After two years, we pulled our child out. Our impression was that the DSTP test outranked the required curriculim. If it wasn't on the test, it wasn't necassary. Teaching the test, and coaching the kids for 2 months on taking the test was more improtant than educating our child. I November our child went through a three week bout of fretting and worrying about the DTSP that weren't to be administered until May. That was when we decided it was time to seek an alternative.
