    This school has gone above and beyond for both of my children. They are both helpful and caring to all the children that I see.

    I have had the pleasure of working at this school for the last 15 years and would not want to be at any other school in the state. We have such a dedicated staff to all of the students and parents and everyone works together to make sure that each and every child meets his/her full potential.

    Long Neck Elementary School strives to meet the needs of all the students. They pin point student weaknesses and find various resources and strategies to improve these academic areas. RTI, in which all children are grouped by ability for part of the day, is another strategy to meet the needs of all the children. The school has a population of more than 70% on free or reduced lunch. However, this fact does not get in the way of their staff's ability to teach the children. The staff instills in the students an I can and I will be able to do this attitude. They do not allow excuses to get in the way of their goal and the children know these high expectations. The support staff and PTO also provide assistance to teachers and students. LNE believes there is no "I" in team and it shows everyday in everyway.

    I am parent and a teacher. I am lucky to know the staff at Long Neck very well. You would think that I would have hand picked my daughter's teachers during her 6 years at Long Neck. But I NEVER once felt the need to request a teacher. Each year I would look at the teachers in her future grade level and think... who would be best for my daughter. Every year I answered that question the same way. They all would! Our school has some of the most dedicated professionals I have had the privilege to work with. My daughter thrived both academically and socially/emotionally. She developed a positive attitude toward learning. She felt loved by all her teachers and couldn't wait for school to start each September. Next year... my little guy will be joining me at Long Neck. Again, I will not be requesting a teacher for him...

    What an amazing school. The staff at this school does whatever it takes to help the students. Each child is treated with respect and all of the students' needs are met individually. I could not ask for a better school.

    This school is by far the best school in the state! It's truly are a superior school. The staff is excellent and the administration is very supportive and student oriented. Moving from Wilmington I was worrried about the lack of private choices in the southern part of the state, but i feel that my son is receiving a private education for free!

    I personally have been involved in the Long Neck Elementary School for the past 7 years. My son and daughter have had the most pleasurable learning experience with the administrators, teachers and the staff. I can honestly say that the Long Neck Staff does care about their children in a way that an elementary school should.They make it a fun place for the kids to learn. As far as the DSTP, the kids know it is an important test, but the staff does not stress them out about it, they just ask for the kids to do their best! The PTO is great too! They encourage parent participation all the time. Every month they do something for the kids.It's not surprising that they are a 'superior' school!I almost hate to see my youngest child leave there!

    I am a current 5th grade student that goes to LN. When I moved from California, I was afraid of what to expect at a new school.The staff at LN really helped me excell in everything I do. I am overall impressed with Long Neck Elementary!

    My experience at Long Neck Elementary has been wonderful. Finding the right fit for a child with special needs can be quite challenging. Since enrolling at this school, I have seen my child grow in leaps. I could not be happier. And it's not just the staff, the kids are really great too. My child is learning and is happy. I find the environment at LN to be caring, respectful, and focused on learning. I looked at other schools, private and public, and I believe that I have found the best choice available for my child.

    I am the grandmother of a child that was pulled out of another school in the district when she was in third grade because the emphasis on the DSTP was so stressful in that building. My granddaughter was enrolled at Long Neck, thrived at Long Neck and did very well on the DSTP at Long Neck. The staff at LN seem to have a way of acknowledging the importance of the DSTP to their students without burdening them with unnecessary stress. This is evidenced by LN being chosen a Superior School by the state of Delaware two years in a row! The administrators and staff are wonderful, the curriculum is well rounded, there are many extracurricular activities and LN has a very active PTO that enhances the learning atmosphere in the building by hosting many academic and fun programs and activities. I plan to enroll my grandson at LN next year!

    No overly impressed with the school. After two years, we pulled our child out. Our impression was that the DSTP test outranked the required curriculim. If it wasn't on the test, it wasn't necassary. Teaching the test, and coaching the kids for 2 months on taking the test was more improtant than educating our child. I November our child went through a three week bout of fretting and worrying about the DTSP that weren't to be administered until May. That was when we decided it was time to seek an alternative.
