    I couldn't ask for a better school or staff. Parents are always welcome and they are always having events for the children and their family. Our family was looking to move but we have decided to wait until our children have completed all 5 years.

    I really do like this school my son has been going to Longdale for 5 years now (started in Kindergarden). The teachers are very focused on the task that no child be left behind and they do a good job of that and they are patient with the kids and as parents we really need that.

    Three graduated from Longdale in my family. Wouldn't have gone to any other elementary school in Henrico County. Wonderful teachers and principal. Great facility.

    We recently relocated form out of state and 2 of our children are attending this school. I believe that the staff do genuinely care about the children but a variety of circumstances (social and economic) negatively impact the overall effectiveness of the school. It is just not the environment I was looking for. Now that we have felt out the area a little more we will be changing schools again next year.

    I have 2 children in currently in this school. We moved to the area because of the school. My children really like this school. I will say that over the past year I have seen a change in the quality of the school not necessarily for the better. The teachers are very active and concerned about the students. I have been able to work very closely with both of my children's teachers. I would defiantly say that they are willing to go the extra mile to help your child if you as a parent are willing to. I would like to see some of the parents show more concern over their children's education so that Longdale can remain a quality school. Overall I would rate Longdale a a good school.

    My daughter loved it there in K and now loves 1st grade. The school is very diverse in culture and the principal is very involved and really easy to talk with. The only issue is fundraising and that I think is universal nowdays. We changed our mind about moving because we love the school curriculum and teachers so much.

    The teachers and principal are very nice and helpful. However there are some underlying social tensions at this school that need to be addressed. There is a population of children who through no fault of their own know to much about life due to their circumstances. I was disappointed at some of the things my daughter was exposed to over the last year. We will be homeschooling from now on.

    This is such a great school! We were thinking of moving into a bigger house when my son was in kindergarden at Longdale but he loved it so much that we decided to put an addition onto our house and stay! Now my son is in 4th grade and my daughter is in 1st. We wouldn't change a thing about this school. The principal and staff make you feel like you are part of a big family.

    My experiences at Longdale have been fabulous. My daughter has had the most wonderful teachers and the principal is top notch. She really looks out for her students. I would highly recommend Longdale to anyone considering moving to the area - it is the 'best kept secret in Henrico County'.

    I am sorry I say I moved from this wonderful place. My child was only there for three years but she loved it. All the teachers were extra nice everything was nice and the cafeteria is nice and spacious.
