Welcome

We are a community school for pregnant and parenting students and their children. We believe that education should be hands-on and relevant to real-life, college and career. We do so with a personalized school model that includes both blended-online and project-based learning.

Quarter 2 Distance Learning

Quarter 2 is under way! Schedules can be found in the Student Portal.  Many teachers have created new Google Classrooms - even for Advisory! Make sure you're in the correct Advisory Classroom.  Use the links in the sidebar on the right of this page to find updated links.

Asynchronous Wednesdays: Students will attend 1st and 4th hours via Google Meet on Wednesdays. All other coursework is asynchronous, or done outside of a live Google Meet session and on your own.

Printed coursework is available at school for pick-up weekly. Call the office or speak with your MVNA nurse for information. Click for a Greeting from our Staff for Q2!  Good luck with this quarter to all of our staff and students!

Health at Longfellow

All other services (counseling, general health questions, and relationship support) will be provided virtually.

Childcare

Childcare is available for the children of Longfellow students during school hours!

Our childcare staff has worked hard this summer to provide our students with a safe childcare environment for their children so that our students can focus on their schoolwork during the day.
If you have any questions about the childcare or enrollment, please contact Lisa Kemming: lisa.kemming@mpls.k12.mn.us

Mission

 

At Longfellow Alternative High School, we provide a personalized learning environment for students to complete their high school education and build a strong future through an emphasis on attendance, academic achievement, and positive relationships. By encouraging critical thought, providing prenatal and parenting education, and partnering with community services we support diploma-driven parents and kindergarten ready children as they establish the groundwork for lifelong learning.

Vision

 

Every teen parent will be prepared for post-secondary education and employment. Every child will be ready for kindergarten.

Newsletter

 

The Longfellow Kangaroo is a student-managed and student-written newspaper that publishes articles relevant and entertaining to Longfellow High School’s student population, neighborhood, and community.  Any student may participate in the production of the paper by taking the class as an English or English elective, or by working for the paper as an extra-curricular activity.  Writing for The Longfellow Kangaroo looks very good on college applications and is an excellent way to explore a career in journalism.
