MPSHome Calendar Contact

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.

Welcome to Quarter 3!

We had a successful second quarter, so please continue to keep up the good work as we begin Quarter 3. Credit Evaluations will be delivered soon! We celebrate students at Quarterly Awards for attendance, academics, and good citizenship. 

All are welcome to join in the celebration and fun. Be sure to check out our daily schedule of events on the calendar to the right, and please join us when you can. 

                                                 Upcoming Quarterly Awards Event Dates:

                                           Tuesday, 2/4/19 from 3:00-4:00pm in the Gymnasium

School Newsletter

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 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.

Become a Student at Longfellow

We, at Longfellow High School, are always looking for new students to add to our school. 

We are school designated for pregnant and parenting teens, but we are also a place where these students can thrive in their education and earn their high school diploma.  We have many different programs to help our students further their education past high school. 

If you, or someone you know, are interested in joining us at Longfellow High School, please give us a call at 612-668-4700 and we'd be happy to give you more information.

Donate to Longfellow

We appreciate all of the wonderful donations that the community and our partners have given to Longfellow!  Currently, we are only accepting donations of winter items.  We especially need winter items for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old, and we are also accepting winter items for high school students.
