Overall I have been pleased. A good group of kids, a positive environment. My one complaint is a science teacher who does not post grades in a timely manner and does not communicate with parents. When asked about my child's progress, she becomes defensive and indignant. This teacher should not be teaching advanced classes.
Many parents would like their child in another schools but many children that are in in 5th grade their years continue what about your child many things have change this year many children move living their elementary school friends that they now for 7 years
My sister goes to this school and it's the worst school ever! This will be the last year she will be there. The teachers are no good and just don't care about their students and behavior. I would NOT recommend this school!
I would not consider this school to be a learning friendly school. The principal is wonderful and cutting edge with her ideas but unfortunately she is only one person fighting for and with a truly overly burdened school.
This is my 7th consecutive year of being a parent at JL Long (my other kids have moved on to high school)...and after the last few weeks of some very poor communication and unprofessional actions on the administration's part...I no longer recommend this school. It has been a nightmare to say the least...and in my 18 years of being a DISD Parent I've never had to file a formal complaint until now.
im a student there, and my life has been threatened! teachers are being fired for harassment, and the principle is rude and no respect for the people or staff! I've been bullied constantly with scars and bruises and the counselors send women who laugh every word u speak! my parents have threatened to sue the school for me being beaten in front of teachers! this school needs to be shut down fast!
My daughter is starting her third year and has had a good experience. She has enjoyed Pre-AP classes, sports, choir, science team. Staying informed just takes going out to the website and getting the e-newsletter. Looking forward to 2012 and more parent / community involvement. GO LONG!
