A school of culture...striving to continue helping kids meet the demands of 21st century expectations.

This is an excellent school! Wonderful principal and teachers. It is a very happy and fun place for kids. My kids love it, and having come from out of state, they did have a comparison. We love the additional clubs and activities (archery, writers club, garden club, etc.) that are available. My kids get the attention, encouragement, and differentiation they need. Parents are very involved and all activities are well attended. The PTA is great, planning lots of fun family activities and providing a great deal of financial assistance for the school & special projects. All the neighborhoods that lead to the school are well appointed, friendly, and safe. We could not be happier.

This school is amazing. From the teachers to the location it is great. My son transfered to LFE at spring break this year and by May he was able to read an entire book, prior to transferring he was unable to read at all. Outstanding commitment from the teachers!!! I would recommend this school to everyone!

Longview Farm is an outstanding school! Faculty and staff really care about the children. They are forward thinking and progressive in their approach to education. The facility is top-notch. We couldn't ask for a better school for our children! Long live the Stallions!

The best of everything - location, structure, teachers, and principal. How often do students get to attend school in a preserved horse show barn on a historic farm surrounded by a county park while being minutes from a major city? It is a wonderful school.

This has got to be the greatest elementary school on earth! My son has been to a private school in the KC area, another Lees Summit public elementary school, and LFE when it opened, for fifth and sixth grades. This school has outstanding leadership in Dr. Rostine and has recruited many of the top teachers from around the district. It is also visually beautiful, off the main streets, and up to date with the latest technology. My son has enjoyed LFE immensely. Moral is incredible and everyone really seems to love being there.

The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
