I think this is one of the best schools in the area. I have been with the teachers when they almost cry when they see a student not getting the help that they need at home, and I have seen the teachers just as excited as the kids are when it comes to putting on the school musical. This school tries very hard to make everyone feel safe and welcomed.

By far the best school, and our daughter have been in quite few, since as a military we move a lot. She finished 3, 4, and 5th grade at Long Hill Elementary and she loved every teacher she had. They are very dedicated in providing the best education and guidance for their students. I also have to mention wonderful music teacher who gave the kids the chance to express themselves by singing and acting in her adaptation of the Disney" s Little Mermaid. AMAZING .

This school is the best! The teachers are fantastic!! Very family friendly, lots of parent involvement! The test scores are great, the kids learn so much there! Some of the teachers have different styles of teaching, and they try and match up the kids to the teacher so the kids really succeed! Truly the best school, my kids love it!! And as a parent, I am so comfortable at the school, your kids spend so much time at school, you want to send them there and feel good about it.

Long Hill Elementary is by far the best school I have ever been to. I may have been there for only one year but when they say the school is a family they mean it. This is to anybody who is going to be new to this school and is shy don't be. Trust me I was grand spanking new to the school even to Fayetteville but they welcomed me anyway. I love the faculty, staff and administrators. Remember Long Hill is a great place to be!

Long Hill makes children and parents accountable for their work, behavior, and responsiblities. This school is high achieving for a reason. I'm thankful for the amazing support my son has received while attending. I can also agree with the previous parent Mrs. Bucolo is the most patient and kind teacher I've ever come across. Ms. Robbins(formerly Muwwakkil) is also an outstanding teacher. From what I have seen of the new principal, he is very involved. He is there to greet the children in the morning and always has a friendly/welcoming attitude. Thank YOU Long Hill!

I have a second grader here with Asperger's syndrome. I can't tell you how wonderful Mrs Bucolo (formally Ms Ryan) is with her class. The special education support staff have been very open to working with us. This has not always been the case in other Cumberland County schools for us. We have had such an amazing year here and my son is excelling. Thank you Long Hill!

Long Hill is, without a doubt, an excellent school. We are very happy with the education our child is receiving here. The curriculum is rigorous and the children are encouraged to put forth their very best. We previously lived in a school district in another state that is nationally recognized - I can confidently say that my child is learning more and enjoying school more at Long Hill. We moved to the north side of town based on the reputation of LHES and I am very glad we made the choice to live in this district. This is a school that demands excellence and we wouldn't want it any other way. Great job LHES!

I have two kids at this school. Most of the teachers are really good. Unfortunately, the principal is very test driven and the pressure on teachers and students is awful. The principal has been known to publically berate teachers, staff and kids. I'm sure she's a nice lady deep down, but she doesn't belong around young children. Your kids will get a good education here, but they will learn to hate school here too. I venture to say it's just not worth it.

My son is now in third grade and I could not be more pleased with all aspects of this school. I am a teacher at another school and the difference is night and day! The academic rigor of LH is very high and meaningful. My son is growing daily and loves being at school. His social development is also soaring. Thank you Long Hill staff and administration! Ms. Faulkner ROCKS!!!

Long Hill is a fantastic school. Reading is big here and the kids are pushed to improve their literacy. There is a high level of discipline in the classes. The teachers have high expectations for the students and make learning a rewarding experience. I am very, very pleased with the education my son is recieving.

My son attended second grade in 2009 in Ms. Crowley's class. She was excellent at keeping the children on task and encouraging her students that needed extra attention. While the school does not have a gifted program until mid-way through third grade, Ms. Crowley created an advanced studen Literature Extension reading comprehension program and encouraged participation in the Superstar Math program. Reading is the biggest focus of the school and it is really PUSHED! The only thing I would wish to improve in this school is that the math focus is not really there. My daughter who is going into Kindergarten is already comfortable with most of the concepts being taught in second grade. So, my advice to any parent, is continue with extra math work at home to keep your child on grade-level with their peers across the county. Best school in Fayetteville. Hands down!

Longhill is the best elementary school in the area. The teachers are dedicated and loving. Many parents are very involved with the numerous activites. My child loved attending school here! One note, Cumberland county does not offer much in the way of 'gifted' education before third grade. If your child needs to be challenged more then advocate on his or her behalf--the teachers and administrators will do more than required if you push for it.

Long Hill is an top notch school with a long history of excellence. Aside from extremely high performance records on reading, math, writing, and science, it is one of only a very few elementary schools in the state that offers an incredible geography and social studies program with Coach Brad Dent and an immensely popular and professional drama program run by Jack Bond. Donna Albaugh is an excellent principal that encourages learning programs like these that 'think outside the (testing) box'. Testing outcomes are some of the highest in this county and best this side of the Triangle. Debbie Williams, Rosemary Berry and Margie Smith are excellent teachers, as are Annie Roach and Sheree Gordon. Safety and parent involvement are exceptional at this school, so don't enroll your child unless you're ready to be highly involved. This school's extracurricular academic activities make area middle school and high schools pale in comparison.

Long Hill Elememetery is by far the best overall school in Cumberland County. The teachers and staff are excellent!!! Alison Frazee I think is one of the best teachers in Cumberland County. She is one of many teachers I know who has spent countless hours everyday after school preparing for the next school day so they would be ready to give the students at Long Hill the best quality education they can possibliy give....Thanks...Long Hill.....

An excellent school with high quality teachers and a good environment for children to learn.

Long Hill is a 'school of excelence' but what that ment for our son was test prep. and more tests. The school is an excelent place for good learners but for our average 4th grader he felt very slow and left out when he transfered there and his grades soon reflected it. When we asked for advice as to how to better help our son we were told, 'just keep doing what you are doing.' -Well, that hasn't worked. The school is organized and all the staff work together, it just was not the place for us.

All three of my kids have gone to Long Hill. Presently I have two kids attending this school. Words just cant describe how pleased I am with this school. Both of my kids are special needs kids and the school has bent over backwards to make sure that they get what they need. I have had a few problems with my kids related to their disability (autism) but the school has worked with me as a team and together we have resolved all the issues. I have no doubt that these people care very much about the success of my children. Shannon Sennabaum
