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 4: The Final Push!

Let's finish this final quarter and year strong! See the new and extended bell schedule to the right. Our school day has instructional minutes added to each class, and the school day now ends at 4:37pm. Buses will leave at 4:47pm daily, so students will have time to get their children from daycare before buses leave.

Important Q4 Dates: 

5/25: Q3 Awards Ceremony

5/30: No School: Memorial Day

6/7: Graduation @5:30pm at Anne Sullivan 

6/24: Last Day of School!

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.
