    Other reviews of this school are off the mark. It's true Long Lake is fortunate in its tax base for so small a school but it certainly doesn't spend money on offices! It works on a very tight budget like any school that has to meet state mandates and win the approval of thrifty taxpayers.The BOE is wholly dedicated to the school and the community and the leadership (by which I presume the disaffected parent means the superintendent) is smart and strong. The superintendent and board were challenged recently over their careful separation of church and state in school publications. They stuck to their guns upsetting some. The reviewer is right about some bright young teachers we have. All in all it's a good--and young--faculty. Union of course and that's where all the money goes but where better? Social skills? Who's to say a small school doesn't have its advantages? One good thing about the size is that the students mix between classes are friends with all ages. They take away a special background and most do fine in college the services or wherever they go. And some stay here and do well in the ways of their home region. It's all of a piece with our wild lakes and woods.

    This school has tons of money....it seems to go towards making nice offices. The students should be experiencing life/the world as there are very few opportunites to build social skills in Long Lake. To make things worse....4 students none pass regents! How does this happen?

    When you look at whether a school is an asset to it's community one must look at teacher quality and commitment to Continuing Education growth BOE quality school leadership and Mission Statement and level of parent input/involvement. This school has light years to go in many areas. When you are informed by a "professional" that parents have "No say in Who teaches their children What subjects" after voicing concerns that the plans to farm out ELA and Math to staff not certified in these core areas for some elementary grades that's a HUGE RED FLAG! This is a school with a weak and unsupportive BOE overtly powerful Teacher's Union and poor leadership. Many teachers are new and are excellent.
