Overall grades provided above match what kind of school Longfellow is becoming. No support from principals and some teachers have given up or are leaving. Too much turnover within leadership and overall lack of leadership impacts teachers as well which leads to poor student performance. Longfellow is not what it used to be years ago and overall grades certainly reflect that.

Both my daughters came through Longfellow -- one was in the gifted program, one needed remediation due to learning disabilites. Both had an excellent experience. Ms. Dolezal, the principal, is a caring and supportinve administrator. So many great teachers!

We came to Longfellow in 2013 from a private school in Oak Park. I am amazed by the teaching and instruction, as well as the leadership and the support system Longfellow offered both us and our children. We have worked along side the team at Longfellow to bridge the gap in learning that needed to happen to bring our kids to where they need to be. I would highly recommend Longfellow Elementary School to any parent.

This school is AMAZING! My daughter is in the middle of her Kindergarten year and I was a bit concerned at first because she was an advanced Kindergartener (she started the year reading and adding in her head). I was quickly put to ease though when I learned that the students are broken into 5 groups for reading and math based on their knowledge so that all of the students are challenged- those just learning their letters and those who are reading books. Communication is great between the teachers, principle and parents and there is an excellent community feeling. Can't say enough about Longfellow=)
