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 is an AMAZING school.They a great physical education program and great teachers.They have installed an amazing computer lab and great math program called ST Math for fourth and fifth graders.They also have CYO camping trip.It helps kids with science and getting close to nature.They have an amazing music program for violin,trumpet,clarinet and flute for fourth and fifth graders.amazing programs and activities to like boys and girls basket ball teams, and after school program.There are about 600 students every year.They have students and teachers that are phillipino,latino,chinese,and african american.they have this really nice library and it is very quiet.
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.
I love longfellow school because of great teachers like Mrs.Womack who has dedicated her life to the students of the S.F.U.S.D. for about 30 years. Thank you for all that you do for our children your the best love you. Love and respect always Quran Mays Sr. A PROUD DAD FIRST..........
