My personal experiences have been positive at the school. My children love their school and look forward to going to school, seeing their teachers, and their friends. They're academically challenged, they get to participate in a lot of good after school clubs/programs. The fine arts program is amazing. I have one child in band and one in choir. Our PTA does a good job of creating fun events for the community and they have an after school program that's helpful for working parents. I do feel when my children leave Longfellow, they will be very prepared for junior high. Most importantly, my children are happy here. As a parent, that's what counts the most.
