I hear this school was great for their academics and was convinced to bring my child in. But after my child went on to the next level after 6th grade, my child had poor grades and a low self esteem. My child has been telling me that her principal is very disorganized and has no leadership to run this ...  Read more

The school is great. The principal is great. The teachers are great except the spanish teacher. My child complains about her all the time. All the other parents said the same thing.

I am a 7th grader at Longfellow . I think that this school a Is actually really great. Our teachers are great and always help us if we need anything. However, I think having 8 classes instead of 7 like year is not a good idea. Our classes and our passing periods are shortened. I overall think that this ...  Read more

I have serious concerns about if the school is adequately preparing it's students to meet the demands of high school at any level. There is NO HOMEWORK! You may think this is a plus but I guarantee there will be homework in high school and these students will not be prepared to handle the load. In ...  Read more

We had very high hopes for Longfellow that were unfortunately NOT MET during our child's first two years at the school. Our child was never given homework and recounted days spent doing very little in class, yet still maintained A's and B's throughout the year. The test scores for the school are very ...  Read more

My child has attended this school since 6th grade and is now in the 8th. The school overall to me is a good school for a teenager.

I've heard great things about Longfellow Academy for years now. I kept up with this school thru a friend of mine who has a son in 8th grade this year and started at Longfellow in 6th grade. He always talks about the teachers, how they go the extra mile. As long as you are serious about your child's ...  Read more

Henry W. Longfellow is a Magnet school, so the students are expected to do well. They are chosen for this school by their grades and standings. For a parent to say that it has excess homework then they don't understand the meaning of Magnet School. This means that it is a school that is for students ...  Read more

My duaghter is starting this year, so I don't have a complete picture of the 'longfellow' experience yet, but so far I am very impressed with the faculty and the students i have met. Like they say, don't judge a book by its cover. Don't judge Longfellow by its campus. The building was clearly first ...  Read more
