Open Quote Longan is a good school. There is a very diverse population in the school which I feel is great! It allows students of different backgrounds to be able to get to know each other and learn from their peers about different cultures. The teaching staff is great! There has been a huge influx of younger teachers that are finding ways to teach the students in new innovative ways. All three of my children have loved going there and will look back on Longan favorably. Close Quote

Open Quote My kids love R.C.Longan Elementary! The school has a great community/family feeling. All my interactions with the staff and teachers have been professional and I believe they always want the best for all their students. Close Quote

Open Quote Do not believe the parent review from October 2017. Two of my children have been through this school and have had nothing but a positive experience with all staff including the principal and office staff.

As a former PTA Board Member, I can personally tell you all the staff are there for the students. I have never had a bad interaction with the principal or office staff. In fact, the office staff go out of their way to help those that speak English as a Second Language. Close Quote

Open Quote Racist, lazy, and incompetent principal. Unprofessional office staff that will talk about people (especially Hispanic) right in front of them. Half decent instructors. Don't expect them to change your child's clothing if they urinate on themselves at the end of the day and if your child is of any other race but white then he or she is automatically deemed bad and treated as so. The WORST school ever just check the testing stats. If you have the option to homeschool do it and avoid this school at any cost. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
