Long River was pretty great. I was an 8th grader during the 2016-17 school year and I would recommend going here. The teachers are understanding and nice, and aren't pushovers. The school staff pushes students to do their best and offers great discipline. The school also welcomes everyone, even if they have some sort of disability. The sports teams were decent when I went there, in my opinion, although a lot can change just within a year or so. If you are moving to Prospect, Long River Middle School is a school that should be greatly considered.
