This seems like a decent school. This is my child's first year and she likes it but I dislike the layout of the school. It might be okay for a middle or a high school but the way it is set up campus-like, anyone can just walk-on and get to any of the classrooms. There isn't even a fence to keep people out and coming from a family with a police background, I have surveyed the area and found at LEAST 2 DOZEN entry points for those not allowed to be on campus. It's enough to want to send my child to another school. This is not a safe thing by ANY means.
My daughter is in her second year at Longan Elementary School. Her first year was perfect and we could not have asked for a better Kindergarten teacher. She was absolutely wonderful. In First grade she and myself are having a difficult time adjusting to the new teacher, but she has learned a lot and I believe she is being challenged academically. I could not be more pleased with this school. I find it to be educationally challenging and enjoyable. The front office is the worst part of the school, the ladies in there just do not say hello and barely look up when you enter the office. They really need to work on that as they are the first impression of the school. The diversity of this school is fantastic and I believe my daughter is learning more than just what is in the books as she is able to attend class with people of all different cultures, ethnicities and religions. My daughter is learning a valuable life lesson in accepting others for who they are and being an individual herself. I could not be happier with the progress my daughter has made at this school.
We are just delighted with longan! My kids are sad when it is the weekend! The teachers make learning fun and Dr. Hall is the best! We have been wanted to move for years but just can't leave this school! Also a excellent pta! ROAR! Go Lions!
This school has been with my family since my son (18) has begun School. Longan is a Excellent school because all my kids have apreciated there help and they are all really smart Go R.C Longan!
My sons Karthik and Prashana went to this school for last four years. This is excellent school. Principal, teachers and staff are very friendly and they all knows each student name and parents. Excellent PTA members. My kids really missed this school. I do not know why this school rated 5 in ths web site but this is a excellent school.
My son has autism which can at times be difficult. He has progressed in leaps and bounds since he's been there. His teachers and even the principle are very involved with him. He feels like he's part of a family there and that they really care about him. His grades and learning advances prove it.
I have been more than satisfied with Longan. My daughter is now in her second year there (1st grade) and I have loved it. The teachers/staff are great, and the principal is so friendly and you will even see him out in the mornings, assisting with the drop off of students. Thank you Longan and all of the wonderful staff!!
I had a poor experience at this school. The principal was unresponsive to questions and issues I had with regard to the reward and punishment system they used. I heard teachers often raising their voices in harsh tones. Though my child liked her teacher, I'm afraid I was displeased with the overall tone and attitude of the school.
This is a wonderful school! The Principal is always friendly, the teachers are awesome and completely involved in the kids' activities, and at least for my son's class, the parent involvement is great, being one of the room parents, we get lots of help from everyone. Discipline and safety in the school is really good, (at one time I was parked on the road during school hours, looking for my son if he was playing on the playground, and I was very impressed to see one of the teachers walk up to me, to confirm that I am a parent and not some intruder!) Am very happy with the school!
Incredible leadership coupled with knowledgable, caring teachers make Longan a great school. I truly feel that my children are loved and cared for. Parent involvement is not up to par but I do feel it is improving.
I am an educator in the same school system and I am very impressed with the level of academia and professionalism at this excellent school. My son is in his second year and he has flourished in this environment. I look forward to working with this fine staff and assisting them in educating my child and others. Thank you Longan. C.Hammond
I really like the school, the principal and his staffs, to me are very enthusiastic about working with the children and for the school. The school is fortunate to have a lot of knowledgeable well educated teachers. School and parents are well communicated in helping teaching the children. The PTA group also is a plus it has given a lot of financial and voluntarily time support to the school needless to say more here, it is well worthies to have my children studying at this school.
Some people may believe I'm a little prejudiced, because I am a teacher at Longan. I was, however, also a student there during my elementary education. I can say with confidence that the school has only improved over time, and I am fortunate to be back as a teacher.
I am constantly impressed with the staff at Longan. The academic programs are fantastic. From what I've seen, the teachers do an awesome job teaching our precious kids. We have thoroughly enjoyed the 4 years we've been at Longan. We look forward to many more years at the school that has such a special place in our hearts! Go Lions!! -The Jarvis Family
My daughter is on her second year at Longan and she is loving it. The teachers are very caring and show real interest in every student success. The school offers music, art and P.E. classes weekly. Our daughter looks forward to go to school every day, and that means a lot. Mrs. Ramos
We have all enjoyed our years there at Longan. My children have loved their time at Longan and they are both so proud of their school! That means so much!
