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.

Longfellow Students Write Lullabies

As part of Carnegie Hall's Lullaby Project, select students from Longfellow High School have had the opportunity to work with VocalEssence ¡Cantaré! composer Francisco Zúñiga.  Together, they have composed six lullabies that will be performed by an octet of VocalEssence Ensemble Singers at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church on May 20th at 6:30pm.  This has been an amazing experience for our students.

First Day of School

The new school year starts on Monday, August 29th!  School starts promptly at 9:45am.  The staff at Longfellow look forward to meeting and seeing all new and returning students.  We have exciting projects and classes planned for first quarter.  If you would like to attend Longfellow, it is not too late to register.  Please call our main office (612-668-4700) for more information.


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.


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