LongBranch is a wonderful place to work. The administration and staff work effectively together to create a safe and fun learning environment. I am so happy to be there, and the kids I teach are genuinely happy too.

Long Branch is an excellent school. Our son has done very well at this school which is run by an outstanding Principal. Parents, teachers, and the community collaborate to make this one of the best schools in the area.

Long Branch is an exceptional school. It's got a remarkably effective principal who attracts and retains and extraordinarily talented and dedicated staff. What's best for the kids gets put first at Long Branch. I feel so fortunate to have had my kids get their start here. It's an exceptional school.

We tried Long Branch. It worked okay for a while. There were some cliques and some sneaky physical type bullying. The school tried to be responsive, but it just kept coming back. The teacher seemed a little insecure about her own education and was very reactionary (with yelling, etc.). Maybe it just wasn't for us.

Average rating for a public school. Teachers, counselor, principal try, but it doesn't quite make it, especially for the gifted.

My daughter started Kindergarten at Long Branch this year and I cannot be happier with her teacher, all the other art, music, and word study teachers as well as the principal and parent involvement. This school is very diverse with students from all over the world, and is a great place to foster growth and understanding. My daughter loves this school and has come home using words such as elaborate which for a 5 year old is great. They have a big emphasis on vocabulary and reading and I truly notice that in the 4 months she is there, she has started to read better and better everyday. I also have a friend who has her son here in 5th grade and he has also had a great experience.

We moved to the area for my daughter's 4th and 5th grade year. We didn't realize how far behind she was because of where we came from, but with the help of her teacher she is excelling and has much more confidence in her own abilities. She has also enjoyed being involved with the band and the various afterschool classes offered (for a fee) by the PTA. We are thrilled with my daghter's experience here!

Can't say enough about it - came here as a Military parent -- never know what you'll find with each move -- very thankful we came to this community and school.

My son goes to Longbranch. We love this school. Exceptional principal and teachers with lots of community involvement and great and involved parents. The kids are nice, smart, and motivated to do well in school. I highly recommend it. Nice neighborhood also in which almost all the kids can walk to school.
