    "I am more annoyed with this school each and everyday. First the The student to teacher ratio the say is completely wrong. My daughter currently has a teacher though being a teacher for many years has no idea how to use a computer yet they they have Bring your own technology. Some of the rules are ridiculous. Like NO TAG on the playground yet wrestling in the grass is ok. Kids can't play with the basketball hoop unless someone is watching and no games to be played. This school simply won't let the kids be kids. The principal is a just lazy. She goes around shouting out her mouth but really she is the most unproductive principal I have ever encountered. Last year kids had to change kindergarten classes because of overcrowding. So to answer the overcrowding what do they do the next year eliminate teaching staff. The school fall under the guidelines set by the state. You have a choice to go to another school and I highly recommend you do it. This will be the last year my children attend this school. I have talked to other faculty and this has to be one of the worst choices of elementary schools in Naperville."

    "Longwood is an excellent school and my children have been well educated and happy there. Upon going to a meeting about test scores, I was so impressed with the gains the students have made over the past four years. The teachers are dedicated and accommodating and always go the extra mile for students. The school's diversity is a huge asset, as kids are taught about different cultures and how to get along with everyone. The school was even distinguished as a top PBIS school. Students have academic and social- emotional learning targets they work on each day, which is wonderful. Great school in District 204."

    "I have had 6 children through Longwood. It is ethnically diverse which I always felt was an advantage to my children. They use the inclusion approach for students with special needs. I believe they have grown to be more tolerant due to this exposure at an early age. Regarding academics, are there other schools in Naperville with better scores? Yes. However, what I can say; The oldest is in med school working on a md/phD with a focus in neurology; the next is working on a Masters in behavioral psychology, Child 3 graduated a year ago with a BS in biochemistry, My fourth has a bachelors in culinary art. Still in school is child 5, at U of W Madison, in their pre-med program. Child 6 just graduated Metea as an Indian Prairie scholar and will attend U of I in their Engineering program with a focus in astronautics. I credit the whole school system with their preparation, but particularly Longwood's diversity to have them ready for any and all nationalities, creeds, and religions later in life. This is a unique experience, particularly in Naperville, which will serve them through-out their subsequent schools as well as the rest of their life."

    "We are planning to move to that area and have done alot of research about that school. We Met a few parents, current students and one ex-student. Everyone was very happy about the school. Some of the parents were actually surprised to hear about the comments on this site. No one thinks that any racism exists in that school, by no one i mean a polish family, 2 white, 1 indian and a hongkong family."
