DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL. This school is horrible. The board of education needs to clean house and fire the entire staff. They do not care about their students. There is constant fighting, and theft on school grounds which the staff does nothing to prevent.

Long Middle School is a great school. With MUCH transformation taking place to increase student achievement the manmoth task is underway. Under new leadership (Ms. Hill) several concerns have been address-student discipline has been addressed with uniforms requirement and parental meetings. Extra activities for students to be a part of are available -orchestra, band, gardening, after school tutorial, soccer, baseball, basketball, Wednesday Tutorials. As the new State Common Core is implemented teachers are required to be a part of on-going professional developments to assist with implementation and rigor of lessons. Students are being held accountable for their actions in the community and in the schools! Ms. Hill is well on her way as the NEW leader of Long Middle School!

This is a Excellent school, with dedicated teachers and staff that put their best foot forward to provide your child with the best education possible. The principal (Ms.Hill) is devoted to making sure that each student is provided with what they need to strive toward success and achieve it. In addition, It is located on a Beautiful Campus with a vibrant garden.

My daughter went to Long for her sixth grade year. It was a horrible school. The teachers don't care about these kids. There are fights all the time and no one does nothing about it. Dr. Harris is rude and a bad leader. I took my child out of here and do not reccommend it for anyones kids.

I have had two kids to attend long Middle School and they are doing very good in high school. The teachers and the principle at the school a re really doing a excellent job with teaching our children. The school is always very clean. The hallways have a lot of the kids work in them so that people coming to the school can see what the kids are doing in the class. My kids are doing good and the school is a great school. They have come a long way and they should be proud of the school. I know me and my kids are proud of the school and the job that they are doing.

I am very satisfied with my son's progress at Long Middle School. He will be an upcoming eighth grade student and he was challenged at the seventh grade level. Dr. Harris has worked a miracle at this school. Before she was there (I had a daughter there during the Lofton years), it was mad chaos. She has done an outstanding job. I can remember my son coming home talking about an awards program the school had for their achievements and had to walk on the red carpet. He was so excited about it. This school has done alot for our students and I see the students changing in our neighborhood especially the boys who are in Project Manhood. Just to see them in shirt in tie makes my heart full. Thank you Dr. Harris for all that you have and are doing.

My daughter graduate from CWL and my assesment of this school is not really good. I do not like this school, the principal and the teachers are horrible. The teachers wanted to be kids instead of teachers. There was no discipline, and they wanted to be friends with the kids instead of instructing them for the life journey. I was very disappointed with this school and will not be sending my younger son t here.

Major micro-managing coming from administration to teachers is causing very low morale. A lot of the teachers don't want to be here. Instead of worrying about what teacher said this to who, we need admin. that will control the outrageous student behavior, and the low test scores and grades.

Long Middle School is not for proactive parents that sets high exspections for educators. Teeachers at Long Middle School on the six grade level will not go the extra mile to produce a quality education that every student can relate to. Long is on the needs to improvement list and until the educators are willing provide students with above average learning, they will remain on that list.

The students at Long Middle School are always eager to learn and get involved, and so are parents. This school offers so much to students. After attending this school, I am fully prepared for high school. The students there are very intelligent and work dilligently everyday. I love this school because the teachers are willing to do whatever they can to help students achieve their full potential. Our math team placed several times, our projects made it passed city level, and we meet our goals for the 2005-2006 school year. Crawford W. Long is the the best and is really becoming a blue-ribbon school of excellence.

This is the worst middle school I have ever experienced. I been in numerous different states through the military and raised 3 children.The school keep failing the standard. The leadership and teachers are not trained. I had to take my child last year out of the school. My child was stamped there as a child with behavior problems. Which I never heard before from any other school. Since he's been in the new school we have no problems at all, he has good grades and he is a happy child again.
