• From the Principal

    Welcome to Longwood Elementary School! We are so glad you are visiting our website and we hope it will help you get to know our school. With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, dedicated teachers, and a rich tapestry of cultures representative of our community, Longwood Elementary is truly a wonderful place to teach and to learn.
    Longwood Elementary School has a commitment to ensuring that we provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for all children. We teach approximately 370 students from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Our passion is educating children and everything we do at Longwood is based around ensuring that your child receives a high quality education. Using the district's inclusive philosophy, special education students and bilingual students are educated alongside general education students. We utilize our numerous support staff to do small group instruction and co-teaching within our classrooms. Our students not only learn core academic subjects, but learn the important social, behavioral, technological and collaborative skills that they will need throughout their lives. Students at Longwood are part of our family and we enjoy watching them learn and grow in many different ways throughout the school year.
    I feel very fortunate to be the Principal at Longwood and look forward to serving the teachers, students, parents and community. Our energetic, dynamic and innovative staff work hard every day to meet the needs of all kids. Stop in and see us in action sometime soon!
    Looking forward to a successful school year,
    Mr. Derrius Hightower
