I agree with the earlier comments. I don't know what the school was like prior to 2010, but when my children (one child was there for 1st and 2nd, and the other one was in kinder). My husband and I were not impressed at all! There are some teachers who really care about the children and teaching, while ...  Read more

Longfellow's test scores have gone down every year since they absorbed students from less well-off areas. Why? I personally believe it is because the teachers don't really teach. They don't have clear objectives that are based on standards with support from curriculum, don't model, or provide guided ...  Read more

I have the interesting experience of having a wife that went there, three kids who went there, One in the GATE program, and now a grand child who goes there. It is significantly different from the 50's. In many ways the kindergarten is more difficult now than then and certainly harder than in the 80's. ...  Read more

If you are new and thinking of attending Longfellow Run and Hide. Choose another school. The PTA ...  Read more

I am disgusted with Longfellow. My son was in Kindergarten and learned nothing. We had to hire teachers from another district to get him up to speed before entering 1st grade. The teaching staff is old and waiting to retire to collect there pensions. I was proactive and transferred both my children ...  Read more

Longfellow is a great school. My daughter was relocated there last year when Burroughs Elementary shut down. In the year that she's attended Longfellow, she has absolutely excelled. It has been great. Mr. Sarabia is one of many wonderful teachers at Longfellow. The library, science lab, computer ...  Read more

Both of my children attended this school from K-5. Ms. Jones both of the kindergarten teacher was by far the best teacher there.
