I think Longfellow is the best place to grow academically! I was a student at Longfellow, and I think that it really challenged me to be my best. I really thought that my teacher was great and that she liked us all the same. I really liked the orchestra program because our teacher was spectacular! She made everything fun and interesting. Longfellow is the way to go when you're choosing a school.
Our sons attended Longfellow before moving to Washington, and I much prefer the atmosphere at Washington. Both are high quality schools with caring instructors and staff, but it is not easy to be a 'have not' at Longfellow.
