Hey is it better to run long distance with a shoe closer to the ground or higher?

hi I run the mile at my school I wanted someone else's opinion on what kind of shoe I should get

Unless you have like platform shoes, the height shouldn't really affect your speed. Whatever gives you the best traction and flexibility is going to be what affects your speed.

If you go to a sports store they'll have it marked right next to the shoe what it's made for. If you're just doing it for gym class any tennis shoe will do really... but if you want to seriously get into running you need to get shoes that are designed for running.
