Longfellow is a small community school with lots of low-income famalies. They have a ESL program specifically for somali kids. A lot of the somali kids come here (to Longfellow)need ESL because they don't speak any english. My 5th grader was so proud to help a new student who was also new to America, learn english and now he's one of the smartest kids in the class now that he can communicate with everyone. They have a good gifted/talented program. Great teachers who really care about their students. Over the last couple of years test scores have really gone up and attendance has improved a lot. lots of educational field trips, great art program, and Bee Smart program. Lots of parental involvement. I will say that the principal could put a little effort into acquainting herself with the families.
