Welcome to Longfellow Elementary School

December 3, 2021 Longfellow Elementary News

Longfellow Elementary School currently has 435 students in Kindergarten – 4th grades. Our students are served by a full time nurse and a full time school counselor with a student-teacher ratio of 14:1. We have a highly skilled, experienced, and dedicated staff with 97% of our teachers having 3 or more years of experience.

We believe that the keys to the success of our students is that they know they are loved, our belief that every child can succeed and that relationships are key. We very much appreciate and encourage the parental and community support we receive, which provides opportunities at school and in the community and the beautiful area we all call home. Collaboration is important.

Our Intervention support program for reading, writing and behavior, along with our Social Emotional Program, was recognized by a Succeeds Prize award in 2019 for the top Elementary School for Transformational Impact in the state of Colorado. Most recently, we were recognized in 2021 by US News and World Report for being in the top 200 schools in Colorado out of 992 schools. We have been a recipient of the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award for the past eight years it has been awarded.

We have approached the challenge of COVID with the support of our families and the community by prioritizing the safety of our students with the recognition that the best environment for our young students is in person learning. We have remained in person for most of last year and all but five days this year. Together we will continue to strive to meet our two priorities. Thank you to everyone!

Chuck McKenna, LES Principal
