Longfellow is a ok school. It is has had 5 bomb threats in this past school year. But I still think that it is a good school with wonderful teachers and staff.

My grandson loves this school!. He is in his 2nd year at Longfellow. The teachers get good marks from him and his parents. He is active in drama, Orchestra and many extra curricular activities. The staff is very helpful and professional every time I attend any activity or performance. They also adhere to their no bullying policy. I am glad he is having a good middle school experience, as we all know these years can be stressful and difficult. Thank you Longfellow School!

You have some great teachers and some not so great. There is high teacher turnover. The school is having problems with overall organization. Every year for the past 4 years, the entire class system/schedule has changed. They can't seem to get their act straight. The principal is non-responsive and racist. There are students who are not held accountable for even unlawful acts, like cutting in class, selling and doing drugs, and bullying. Yet, good kids are picked out and used as poster children for any minor offenses - like not brining an ID badge to class. There have been a number of times when my children's safety was at risk from bullying and from general lack of problem solving among the staff. I wish I would have selected a different school for my daughter. :( She is bright and a top achiever, but the environment is poor and this is a reflection of the leadership. I have to give them below average do to the social problems and weak leadership.

Wouldnt recommend this school to anyone. My child comes home crying daily about how bad it is: bullying, teasing, many bad teachers who don't teach, but are great at yelling. Pricipal doesnt care enough to return emails or calls w/ concerns. Some classes are overcrowded-kid shave to fight for seats and many disruptive students from neighboring city who get no consequences for unbelieveable actions!

As a parent of a high achieving child I have been very pleased with the breadth and depth of my son's education. Along with quality academics, Longfellow offers an excellent theater department and first rate band and orchestra programs. My son has commented that he "feels safe" at school and is free to be himself and march to his own drummer. All in all an excellent experience so far.

Principal is unresponsive and appears disorganized. He isn't out in the halls with the kids. Teachers have been excellent overall and seem to be very caring.

This school is a great learning environment for me. They have a pretty descent diversity level. I I have really improved after coming out of the Milwaukee Public Schools system. My favorite teachers are Mr. Theriault, Mrs. Westphal, Mrs. West, Mrs. Hutchinson. Mr. Calarco, and the french teacher, Mademoiselle Baehr. The children are really great and overall kind.
