Longfellow has good test scores, however, it is a school that "teaches to the test," at the expense of promoting critical thinking abilities in children. Additionally, it has an incredibly homogenous student body. There is almost no ethnic diversity.

Great staff (many long-term), smallish classes, diversity of students, very parent-friendly.

I love Longfellow because my nephew is excited about going to school. I am amazed at how much he has learned since starting kindergarten and I love to see how proud he is to share what's he has learned.

The staff/ teachers are great. The school has a wonderful atmosphere for all grades.My Grandsons classroom is phenomenal the way his teacher has it decorated. A very warm and educating class room in every respect.

Speaking as an educator, Longfellow has the most involved parents I have ever experienced. This has a tremendous impact on student learning and achievement.

I have had three children go through Longfellow Elementary. My youngest is in his last year. It has consistently been a place of great teaching and great community involvement.

Longfellow rocks the house. My children love it, learn lots, the staff and teachers are aces. Best of all is the great collaboration of the PTO. There is no better school in the Portland School district.
