I really enjoy this school for my son My son's teacher Ms. Aguaio has been so great! The improvement shows and the growth of learning shows in my son. I don't feel this school is rated appropriately, but every kid has a different learning curve or way of learning. I am glad I made the choice of moving him to this school.

My school is Longfellow E.S. and though it was never one of my choices when I signed up my daughter it certainly became my favorite school. All the work Ms Matsuno did at Longfellow still shows. The teachers are caring, my daughter was blessed with great teachers that we both admire and love very much! Great work Logfellow

Longfellow was a top school in 2006. Now 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students cannot even solve basic math problems. They also lack basic grammar and language skills. These students appear to lack basic skills. They appear unable to add, subtract, multiply and/or divide problems involving decimals, fractions, and percentages. Teachers are not making sure the students leave with a solid foundation for middle school. If nothing changes, our kids will continue to fall behind.. Students now, leave their 3-4-5th grades functioning at a lower level than when they began! Many teachers are not following core curriculum guidelines for these grades. STARS test scores have dropped. These kids speak English, language is not an excuse. The school must take responsibility for the education of our children. Longfellow has failed to successfully educate our children

I was inspired by the staff and teachers at Longfellow Elementary for their dedication. I went there during my elementary school years. The teachings that I learned have stuck with me all my life and have put a clear direction for me in my life. Thank You Longfellow Elementary for all the good times and bad times.

The teachers and staff are fantastic! Longfellow gives parents and volunteers many opportunities to get involved in the child's education and the community.

We agree with the comments about Ms. Womack - she is just great and really caring about all her students. She brings out the best in every child!

Great Diversity and emphasizes the arts - seems there is not enough space for the amount of kids though. extra space for special needs, speech lessons etc.

I am very happy with almost every aspect of Longfellow School. My son's Kindergarten teacher is nothing short of amazing, and I appreciate Ms. Hammon's dedication. I could have not asked for a better experience, with the sole exception being the mess that the other parents make while dropping off and picking up their children.

We had a good teacher for our 1st grade daughter last year. School is very diverse with about 1/3 Asian, 1/3 Filipino, and 1/3 Spanish speaking. The school seems to have more homework than advertised. I would say that the nightly homework is between one to two hours, including the reading of a book.

I have been a teacher at Longfellow Elementary School in San Francisco for the past 5 years. I am very appreciative of the excellent Fine Arts programs the school provides to the students. In addition to dance classes for every grade level, Longfellow also has an fine instrumental music and choir program for students in grades 3-5. I am equally impressed by the dedication of the teaching staff and the commitment to excellence from our new principal. The teachers have great ideas and methods for meeting the individual needs of the students. I would invite you to visit the school during one of our performances. It makes my heart sing to see children for whom English is their second language perform so beautifully. I am also appreciate the wonderful support of the parents and the community.

I am actually not a parent, but an alumni who graduated in 1989! At the present moment, I am in my 2nd year of pharmacy school in hopes of obtaining my Doctor of Pharmacy Degree in about 2 more years. I cannot emphasize enough just how grateful I am that I have attended Longfellow from K - 5th grade and just how much they have contributed to my success as an individual. I have so much admiration in all of my past teachers in Longfellow, for they challenged me in many ways and have given me the foundation that I needed in order to accomplish my goals in life. Thank you Longfellow for everything!

It amazes me how much this dedicated group of people can do with so few resources. This school is safe and clean, very diverse ethnically, and very motivated academically.
