    "Longfellow Elementary has been a great school for my three children (grades K, 2, & 5). The principal and teachers are top notch. They do amazing things on a skelleton budget. The principle is very sensitive to social emotional needs of kids and is quick to respond to reports of bullying. In 2012, the school won an academic improvement award. The teachers work closely with nearby Augustana College to create a strong liberal arts focus. I rated parent involvement low because there is room for improvement with communications and budget at the school distric level. There are no mechanisms in place for electronic communications with parents (i.e. - no web-based parent portal, no access to teacher email addresses, and the website tends to be several years outdated). Electronic communications are standard in other nearby school districts, thus RISD 41 is behind the curve in that regard. Unfortunately this creates difficulties for working parents wanting to stay connected with the school."

    "My daughter will be going into 1st grade this year and I couldn't be happier with the school. The Kindergarten teachers are absolutely amazing, they are involved above and beyond what you would expect. There is a lot of parental involvement, with high booster club membership, and a great community feel to the school. Mr Knuckey the principal is an excellent leader, he knows all the children and is able to balance discipline with positive reinforcement. Keri the secretary is one of the schools best assets, she literally knows everyone and is always there to help. I definitely feel like the education my daughter get is individually adapted to her strengths and weakness, and not just classroom based. I can't say enough good things about Longfellow, and look forward to the beginning of the next school year."

    "Academically speaking, being in the Illinois school spotlight for three years in a row says something about the quality of the teachers. Did I mention the high level of parent involvement and community feel the school radiates? Having been at the school for the last seven years I look forward to spending another five years at Longfellow. My children and I both love Longfellow and what the school has to offer us."

    "This school is one of three elementary schools in the school district targeted for closure. There is a tread to consolidate older schools with under 200 students to mega-schools with 400 plus students. In its present state, Longfellow exceeds academic standards, has the highest parent and community involvement and structurally, has historical architectural value. Parents and community members have mobilized to preserve this smaller, older school via public education and school district advocacy."
