I used to be a student at this middle school and I really liked it at first because there were a lot of friends that I made from elementary and school was really fun; I always tried to do my best. But as I got older, I noticed that many teachers and other students avoided 'unpopular students like me' because I was different and didn't stand out as the other rich, 'popular' kids in the school. Teachers were outstanding and funny tutors, but most of their attention really only went to the popular cliques. If you weren't popular or pretty or rich, you couldn't really stand a chance unless you were an overachiever in class and projects. Another problem I faced was racism. Racism is everywhere and I'm not surprised, but because the majority of the school population are Caucasians, many non-White students were often bullied and picked at with racist jokes. They'd harm you physically and emotionally in a such harsh way, you'd end up missing attendance - like me. There are also a lot of sexists and immature students - mostly boys - that like to pick on girls. It's disturbing in class and many students can't concentrate. It'd be nice if teachers could take more action to immature pupils

There are a lot of students, so each teacher does not give individual help you would find at a smaller or private school.

It's a good place to go to for middle school. 'Cause I'm a student there right now. Gonna be leavin to North High School next year (sad...) They got a lot of things like Clubs, sports, volunteerings, etc... But to the 6th graders - they dont get to do much, like after school sports. I complained alot about that when i was a 6th grader. *laughs And got great teachers with great classes to take, etc... *yawn dunno why im even writing on here... Hahahaha - but Delongs a great place. Go there.

Overall the school is great. Excellent band, art, computer apps & health teachers. Homeroom & team teachers consistently get back to parents questions & concerns pretty fast. Only complaints, I wish the school was more into requesting parent involvement in more situations, and I wish there were more sports or other clubs available to 6th graders.

I am an eighth grader at DeLong. The teachers are all really kind and care a lot about the students. The principals are always around to talk to. There isn't a lot of fighting or violence. The cultural diversity is also very nice. The students have fun learning. There are so many students no students are ever left out. There is atleast one other student to become friends with. There are no students left out. There is a large variety of sports to do and if you don't like sports there are things like math counts and the school musical that you can do. There's no place safer than DeLong Middle School. The students are provided with an e-mail address through the district.
