    "I have been teaching for 27 years, and Longfellow is by far the best school I have ever worked at. My children went to Longfellow as well. The teachers are excellent, the support staff is excellent and they work very hard to create a school climate that is welcoming to everyone. They have a staff of counselors who provide individual and group support to those in need. Tons of enrichment activities including great music programs, sports and dance. The school is small enough that the staff really knows the students and watches out for everyone. This school combines academic rigor, scaffolded support for struggling students and enrichment activities. 5 stars for sure."

    "As a young-ish teacher, I have found the staff at Longfellow to be the most supportive, collaborative and dedicated group of educators I have ever worked with. I truly love working at Longfellow. We are a community that cares for each and every member of our school 'family'. Furthermore, teachers are constantly working together to improve instruction and curriculum, meet the needs of our diverse student population, and continue the academic success we have been enjoying for the past few years."

    "I think that Longfellow is a great school and the teachers are awesome! My child just finished her first year as a 6th grader in the dual immersion program and the teachers where excellent! She is looking froward to going into her second year in the next two weeks. Please consider this school when looking for great academic and fairly small loving, public middle schools in Berkeley! Thanks, ----------"

    "Principal Cheung is excellent. She solves problems, is straightforward, trustworthy and knows exactly what's going on. She's out every morning, greeting kids and closely monitering. The vice-principal and counselor are very good too. Children do not 'get lost' in this small middle school. No bullying. Strong, excellent teachers include computer, art and physical education. Math, science, english and history teachers - half are excellent/good and half are not. Zero period instruction is great: band and computer. Academic challenge is less than it should be at times. Afterschool program is a good idea, works OK and is inexpensive. Afterschool program offers jazz band, steel drum, art, sports teams, hip-hop dance, Mexican dance. The girls love the hip-hop dance instructor, a real character. Lots of student performances at night. PTA struggles to get parents to show up. Racial makeup of PTA participants bears no relationship to racial makeup of student body."

    "great after school program. Generally solid teachers. Hit or miss with classes. Some sections, depending on combination of students, can be very academically oriented, others very unacademic. Smallish school so no student is anonymous. Not easy to get away with poor behavior."
