With great educators leading the way, H. W. Longfellow School builds upon the existing knowledge and skills of each child while building toward a future of being contributors and problem solvers in an increasingly complex world. We emphasize the importance of bi-literacy and math skills as a basis for problem solving and high level thinking and we have a school climate of respect, responsibility and emotional and physical safety for all.
H.W. Longfellow School will provide a safe, diverse, and academically challenging environment where students are welcomed and embraced to develop their unique talents.
H.W. Longfellow open its doors to the community in 1886. In 1912, our school was renamed for its location, then called Sixteenth Avenue school. In 1931, it was renamed in honor of poet and educator Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
H.W.Longfellow is the second oldest school in MPS and has been serving the Clarke Square community for over 132 years.
