    This school has good teachers and really want the kids to succeed. BUT ALOT of female students were horrible no respect attitudes bullying is a huge issue at Longfellow and nothing gets done it is comical and fun to them when they attack other students. I won't send the rest of my children to that school. TEACHERS/SECURITY STEP UP AND PROTECT AND BE AN AUTHORITY FIGURE NOT JUST A FRIEND TO THEM. WITH NO CONSEQUENCES KIDS DON'T LEARN.

    I honestly hated going to this school. It was like a personal hell for me. The teachers were awesome but the kids were atrocious! Honestly the school needs a wake-up call.

    Longfellow has awesome teachers that go the extra mile to help students! I am a teacher in another building but I do know how hard they work! They really deserve this studio.

    The school board can't get it together the uniform policy has been in effect for over 2 yrs now and is still not straight across the district on pretty much a day to day basis things change not pleased with the sucsess for all reading program my childs grades went down after she was sick because all the material stays at the school so you cannot makeup those days staff changes year to year bounced from one school/position to another and truthfully my child has been there since k now in 7th and with all the changes uniforms reading programs etc her grades have dropped and she was tested and placed in gifted...
