    Fabulous school. Every member of the staff from the prinicpal and teachers to the support staff and secretary are 100% committed to the children. I am so blessed that my son attends this school.

    New principal is so involved and engaged as well as all of the teachers. The superintendent can see it too and is starting a pilot program using iPads at this school. They are not afraid to be innovative. We feel so lucky to be here it is great!

    My oldest child had trouble retaining information over the long summer breaks so we gave Longfellow a try it has been amazing ever since. The staff is wonderful and the students have so many opportunities to learn in small groups. The principal is very involved which is reassuring. My son had gone to three different schools before we found the perfect fit.
