We couldn't be happier with this school! Our son is in kindergarten and has learned so much! He enjoyed playing on the kindergarten basketbal team! We also love that they hold lieracy night and a family fun night amoung many others. We love this school! Parent involvement is high and the PTA always goes above and beyond!
As a parent I couldn't be happier with Long. My daughter has attended Long for 5 years and every teacher has been great. The teachers all seem very flexible and willing to do whatever it takes for the students to succeed. The teachers all seem to really enjoy teaching and the principal is very supportive. I highly recommend this school.
As a parent to a former Long Elementary student, I feel that you couldn't get a better elementary school than this one. Many of the teachers even donated their time after school for free activities. My daughter was in both the theatre group and the chess club. The teacher who was often seen outside playing football with anyone who wanted to play even started teaching indoor floor hockey. Long School is a wonderful learning environment for those all-important early school years. My daughter loved going to school there. Even now that she's in 8th grade, she will periodically stop by to visit. Some (if not all) of the Dearborn elementary schools are 'theme' schools. Long Elementary's theme is 'reading' so they often did special activities geared toward that.
My two children have attended Long for over six ys now, and I love it there very much, I do miss Mr. Monroe though, but I am sure the new Principal is wonderful too. My main concern for this message is that with all of the shootings going on in the schools, I feel that we need to demand that they lock all the doors around the school. We need to insist that they purchase a security system, before its too late. Nobody ever thinks that something horrible is going to happen to thier children, until it is too late. Lets not allow this to happen at our school. Riki Johnson
I feel as a parent of a 3rd. grader and kindergarden student this school has done a wonderful job. When they started here at the school my sons needed a special teacher for speechthe school was so dedicated and took to tend to their needs. I thank you so much for your time and dedication to my family. Reyna Caballero
