We have been blown away by the parent involvement at Longfellow. The 'family' atmosphere at this school has truly set it apart from our other experience at our child's neighborhood school. The teachers challenge the kids and teach to their individual levels, not simply to the entire class. The PTA is incredibly active, and there are numerous activities monthly to encourage families to participate. We love it and have absolutely no regrets about entering the lottery and moving into this school. We highly recommend this school and its excellent, caring staff.
