Longfellow is a Blue Ribbon school. I did student teaching there and was greatly impressed by the drive to provide a good education to these children, who come from very low income homes. Every child I met read for fun, as well as for school.
Longfellow Elementary school is in Mesa, Az. My kids eat breakfast there as well as lunch. They have wonderful teachers that are involved and also their principal is also really involved in the school, kids and parents. Every staff member I have encountered you can really tell cares about the students and the parents. I love their school! I chose it, I tried the charter school down the street and actually perfer Longfellow.
Longfellow is on a Modified Year Round Schedule. The year round schedule was instated to help students be more successful. Shorter breaks from school with instruction spread out over the year help students retain information. The dress code provides a uniformity to the students. This means less distraction in the classrooms. The teachers are very involved with the children and their families. They are willing to help families in need and even have programs to help defer the costs of the uniforms. The principal is friendly and available.
