Truly an amazing school. We moved to the area about 2 years ago, and I was skeptical because it's an older school in an older neighborhood. Let me tell you, I couldn't be HAPPIER. Mr. Lipke is not like any other principal I've come across. He makes it a point to know all the kids and interact with them on a daily basis. They have after school bingo where the teachers and Mr. Lipke hang out interact... they have Culvers night, where Mr. Lipke helps serve the food for dinner... they have Princi-PAL, where Mr. Lipke will come to a students house with their classmates and he will read them stories! My son says Mr. Lipke is out on the playground every recess playing kickball with the kids... HONESTLY, this school is a diamond in the rough. My kids love it, I love it, and my kids are happy and well cared for.. AND, they're getting a wonderful education to boot!!!

Mr. Lipke is so invilved with his students and the school always has some kind of family event going on after school and on weekends. LB teachers, staff and parent volunteers always make sure the families have a great time! Oswego's best kept secret!

This school was a dream come true. We moved so that our son could go to a better school and he got a great school. I am truely sad that we had to move back to Aurora after one year. We have noticed as he meets friends his age from elas where he is above them in most areas. HE will miss the teathers and friends he made there. The principal is doing a great job keeping the children on track and al most all the the teachers are just as amazing.

I had two children that attended Long Beach and although at first we were skeptical, we have been so pleased with the education that our children have recieved. Keep up the good work Long Beach and I must mention that the Principal is one of the best I have encountered, very involved with his students and it shows..... very sorry to be leaving the district....

The school tries to work with its students and parents but if you have a child that acts up whether behavior or whatever. The school tends to remember the bad things and put that child on a paddle stool. Now do not get me wrong but the teachers are excellent with the expectation of some. However for the most part the school is excellent needs a little clean up with staff but overall i give it a 90 out of 100.

This school rocks! My sons went to Nicholson before attending here and this school is so much better. Long Beach is the best elementary school in Kane and Kendall County! All 3 of my children have excelled and have been challenged to harder work when needed. This is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best. The teachers work hard to bring out the best in each child. They have many programs for children of all levels that you know your child will strive to do the best he can. You are also always kept up to date with everything that is going on with your child. If you have the chance for your child to attend Long Beach, you can rest at ease knowing they are at a school they really cares for them.
