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.

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.

Longfellow is in the News!

Recently the Longfellow Nokomis Messenger featured an article about our 100th Anniversary Celebration.  Read it here:

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, but are also accepting winter items for high school students.

 (We are not currently accepting general clothing items or play things - our storage areas are full)

Thank you in advance to everyone considering donating to our school.  We truely appreciate your help!
