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.
