Henry W Longfellow Elementary School
Develops empathy: Neutral

I do not feel anything close to a community spirit here. What I see are great kids being strangled by their alpha parents who want to control social circles for kids as well as inside the school. If you are outside of the typical suburban groupie mold, you will struggle to find community here. I also see many minority groups being slighted by kids and parents

We have been happy with the staff at Longfellow and the children we have met. However, only when this community realizes that the education and socialization of ALL kids is important.( regardless of socioeconomic background). will this community go from good to Great.

I have two children going to Longfellow, and I could not be happier with the school. It has great teachers, involved parents. The school has a wonderful community spirit, and every child strives to respect all others within their community.

I am a parent of a third Grade student very fortunate to have him attend Longfellow. Outstanding staff and principal I am so pleased at what is being taught in this school as well as the dedication of the staff. We are truly fortunate to be in such a progressive school. Top rated all around.

Longfellow is a terrific school. The teachers, staff & principal are fantastic - working with children at all levels. My child looks forward to going to school everyday. For working parents, there is a wonderful affordable before/after school program onsite through the park district. The PTO does a lot for the school and everyone is welcome. I feel fortunate to be a part of the Longfellow community.

I'm a Longfellow Father. I love this school. All the kids I know are happy and learning. We consistently set the curve for test scores. The teachers are excellent. The PTO is excellent. We are lucky to have our child at Longfellow.
