Longleaf Middle School is a great school with phenomenal teachers. The ZooBot magnet program has teachers that truly care about their students and want them to be successful learners for life. They also just became a whole school magnet with a STEAM focus. Looking forward to seeing what this next year has in store for this wonderful school.
Sixth grade was great, especially the agent program. Seventh grade had its challenges, half of the teachers were good while the other half (including the principal) seemed to just be making appearances. Eighth grade has been the toughest, 3/4 of the teachers don't seem to care about the kids or their education and the ones that do care, seem stifled by the administration. No wonder scores were worse in 2012. I hope the school bounces back.
My daughter attends this school this year and I have to say that I love the school. We moved here a couple of years ago and I can say that this is one of the better schhols. I like it because the principal and administrators are responsive to my concerns and they are very involved with school improvement and ways of continued growth of the school. I, especially liked the fact that for my daughter's first year, they offered summer programs to allow rising 6th graders to become familiar with the middle school environment. I like the size of the school and it was not an overwhelming environment. My daughter loves the teaching style of Mr. Jenkins and I have enjoyed the responsiveness of all of her teachers. Kudos
I love this school and it has fun activities but have great opertunities and a great education keep it up lepords
As a parent of a student at Longleaf, I am concerned and disappointed that the students seem to be running the school. I frequent the school no less than once a month. There is a lack of holding students accountable for the rules and and consistent consequences to ensure an adequate learning environment. The lack of respect, language, and defiance is horrific. It is no wonder test scores are not as they should be. Quality learning cannot take place in the chaotic and undisciplined environment within the classrooms and halls. Additionally, there are no programs for students to become involoved in their school community. Longleaf needs to consistent discipline in and out of the classrooms. It's sort of like 'the tail wagging the dog' over there. Consistent rules and consequences should be the norm and understood by all. Only then can real learning and test score improve!
I love this school it gives kids freedom and great education. It does need programs though.
I don't like the school. It is so BORING and they DO NOT make it fun over there.
