    "Almost all of the teachers are well-trained, and seemingly well educated. They know what they are talking about, and are often sociable and people know who they are even if they are not in their classes. However, there are a few teachers that are universally hated, and there is actually quite a lot of gossip throughout the school about them. In Longfellow, technology is very important, and is used in as many situations as possible. Many teachers are starting to use Google Classroom for students to turn in papers (which in turn makes students write their papers online on Google Docs), and almost every classroom has a Smart board, and if not, they have projectors. For many years, Mr. Williams taught math at our school, and was perceived as a legend, and everyone knew him, even if they were from other middle schools. However, after many, many years of teaching at Longfellow, (The second best math teacher in the school was actually taught math in middle school by Mr. Williams!) he is moving to Mclean's new BASIS school."

    "At Longfellow, it is not hard to find a very, very, very smart kid. Longfellow is notorious in the area for competing so well in academic competitions, and just being 'smart' doesn't cut it for the school. And all the smart kids aren't bullied at all, bullying is non-existent (At least to my knowledge). The reason for so many smart cookies winding up at Longfellow is first AAP, or the Advanced Academic Program (Of which I am a part of). All of the people in AAP in Longfellow and Cooper districts have to attend Longfellow, since Cooper does not have an AAP program (Although it will be fully starting next year). Previously, the County tried to make AAP students from Churchill Road Elementary School (Which I attended) go to Cooper, which, by the way, is only 3 blocks away, but parents from the school were so outraged that the plan was revoked, although soon the plan will come into place anyway. Another reason for the amount of smarts in the school is just the location. Located in Northern Virginia, the area is very rich and many people have just recently moved here only a few years ago. Washington DC attracts many jobs, and it's not hard to find a few mansions if you drive around. I could go on and on for years about different parts of the school, the social hierarchy, the small tidbit I just wrote is just the beginning. But I'll just sum it up quickly: The school is honestly just great. The atmosphere is laid back but students are still motivated to work hard and get good grades, the people are amazing to talk to, and the teachers know what their doing."

    "I loved all the traditions and being part of the different friend groups and just being part of the school overall. What makes this school unique is its academics. We had trophies everywhere in the school from academic competitions. My two years at LMS were possibly the best two school years of my life and I wouldn't change a thing. They made me who I am today."

    "The majority of the teachers are absolutely fantastic. I had three that rubbed me the wrong way. One was a little too close with the students, one was just an awful, boring teacher, and the other had no personality."
