Wonderful community school! Ms. Simpson the new principal is extremely involved and visible. The staff and teachers all seem to be dedicated to the success of each and every child. My daughter is happy and loves going to school everyday and that makes me feel great!
My children attend this school. We move to NC about 2 years now and I have been please with the education they have rcv'd here. Mr. Thomas is very involved and you always see him throughout the school. The teachers allow you to come in and observe as well as assist if you would like in the small group sessions. Ms. Y. Bonaparte the school counselor is excellent as well as the office staff. I could not be more pleased with Long Creek.
The principal is great! He has encouraged greatness from his administration and teachers. My son loves learning, is always chanllenge when he needs to be and is encourage to be respectfull, caring and safe.
Long Creek Elementary has excellent, involved and caring teachers. They are far and above a better choice of teachers than given credit. The faculty/staff are very good about developing and instilling strong character and responsibility within the students.
This school is the only elementary school in quite a broad area that provides our county's Bright Beginnings (an early intervention program).
Dedicated staff, committed administration, hardworking PTA and awesome students
Due to the leadership of the principal, this school is an awsome learning facility and has increased its test scores trememdously in just a short period of time. I would definitely recommend this school.
The principal is very hands on, he get directly involved in the the goings on of the school. I have rarely see him in his office he is always interacting with parents, teachers and students. I like how involved he is. He takes his job to heart and gives his all. The teachers follow his lead and the rest of the staff is very accomodateing as well as friendly.
Good school; great teachers! Teachers are very well organized and focused on each student's education. There is a strong communication from teachers re: student's progress. Parents are encouraged to participate and visit school at any time.
My son is in kindergarten this year and it has been a wonderful experience. We have been very please with his teachers and the administration. The new principal seems very excited about the future of our school. As an added bonus we will be getting a new building in 2009!
Our kids have been at Long Creek for their entire elementary years. We have had a lot of leadership change, but are finally settling in to a fantastic year with a great new principal. The teachers seem happier to be at school and the kids are more excited than they have been in years about going to school. The way classes are grouped in 3-5 really meets the needs of all children, high and low. Long Creek has regained a lot of parent participation and enthusiasm this year. Go Mustangs!
The curriculum standard is set fairly low here although if you are an involved parent you can find additional ways to challenge your child. The fact that children are not allowed to truly celebrate holidays at school also contributes to very low parent participation. The school looks extemely dilapidated. I don't think the principal has done enough to fight for desperately needed structural improvements. There is not a satisfactory gym or place to have student presentations. On the brighter side the kids seem well behaved and the school is genuinely focused on developing the whole child.
I have only wonderful things to say about the teachers and principal. They encourage the children to do their absolute best and it shows in the school's improving EOG scores.
Great neighborhood school. It's small enough for the students and parents to feel a sense of 'family' at the school. Awesome Principal, which leads to great faculty and morale. Old school is charming and safe. Same curriculum taught here as in all CMS schools. Nicely diverse student population. Students well prepared for middle school. Getting a little overcrowded, but still manageable.
Awesome school! Small school allows for a 'family atmosphere' at many gatherings. Teachers are focused and have high expectations of the students. My daughters teacher teaches 'to mastery', which means that no matter how they 'rank' in the class, they can all improve on something. This is an 'open' school, which means parents are encouraged to visit school often, whether it be for conferences or simply to have lunch with their child. Principal is professional and fair, yet warm to the students.
Morale of students at this school are low due to teachers being overbearing. Short lunches are often taken in silence and holiday parties are allowed to be taken away for consequences for minor incidents (such as forgetting to bring your reading record to school.) Parent involvement is not encouraged.
