I hate to send my kids to school everyday. This school is just an overall bad environment . The kids that attend can be so mean and my kids often get bullied. Administration really doesn't do much to help the kids that go there to truly learn and do good. I'm a very active in the school and I see the way some staff members don't care it seems to me that they are there simply to collect a pay check. We need to clean house and get new administration . The only one that cared about the kids was Mr Lopez and its sad he is no longer there. Don't send your children to this school. I myself am looking to home school because of this school.

My daughter attended Longfellow for 3 years. The staff truly cares for the student. All the faculty is quick to respond to any concern. My daughter is now attending Travis Early College High School and she owes this opportunity to all the faculty and staff at Longfellow.

I have been attending this middle school since the 6th grade, and I could not be more impressed. Our band is a hard working, dedicated group. Its no wonder they have held their legacy for almost 11 years now. We have recently become a National AVID Demonstration site which is not only beneficial to the students participating in AVID, but to everyone who atttends this school. Another outstanding group of spartans are our LOTC cadets, who were ranked 1st place for best marching band at the Veretans Day Parade in 2011. I, as an AVID student and LOTC cadet, would like to thank Ms. Lori Latiolais, Srg 1st Class Darden and Ms. Judy Check for being a great support in my academics. I am proud to be a Longfellow Spartan.

They don't have good electives and the one you might want for your child is full and they put them in whatever they want.

The main problem I have with this school is its disciplinary environment. I have urged them to find a way to combat the violent environment. The halls are for the most part unmonitored. The school security is overly friendly with some of the kids and turns a blind eye on others. A peer mentor program or a hall monitoring program in which the kids are involved may help. the kids wander the halls seemingly at will and after school there are groups of kids everywhere not for a few minutes but for several hours. Dispersing the children from school ground could help also. There are some darn good teachers there but they appear to be swayed by the kids almost afraid. I will say that the principle, vice principle and head counselor are trying. Good bless them.

i was a student at Longfellow middle school and it was a wonderful experience for me. i am a A B honor student and i learned so much there. the teachers where nice and fun and caring for the education of students. the students are happy that they have friends and teachers that just want the best for them. Longfellow is a great school with an awesome staff.

I have a niece that goes there. I sometimes pick her up after school. I can not believe the kids foul language, behavior, and lack of respect for one another. I see teacher go by and not say a thing to these students. My niece has also been bullied and nothing seems to be done about it.


Posted October 10, 2008

Well Im a student in the 8th grade @ Longfellow Middle Skool and I think Longfellow has a Good Learning Environment and all the parents should be proud to know that their sons and daughters are going to a Great Skool with lots of fun thing to do and i guarantee that they will make lots of friends and teachers that actually care aboiut the student that they teach.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
