Discover This School

Longfellow Elementary School, located in the outer Mission district, builds on a tradition of 139 years. We believe in educating the whole child, empowering families, and engaging students in the joy of learning. The motto at Longfellow is, Together We Can Make a Difference. Teachers, parents, and the school community work together to provide the academic and social skills to assure the success of all students.

Staff and parents are committed to creating a learning environment that values lifelong learning, cultural awareness, and social responsibility. The educational and visual and performing arts programs recognize and foster the uniqueness of each child. The sense of family and belonging encourages respect among all members of the community and engenders love for and pride in Longfellow. We believe that together we are capable of making a difference for children, their families, and our community. Longfellow's teachers, staff, parents and students equally share the responsibility of creating a safe, nurturing environment that promotes academically successful, emotionally intelligent, globally aware, life-long learners who think critically and express themselves artistically. Our goal is to nurture confident, open-minded, independent thinkers. We prepare students for global responsibility and educate them for human greatness.
