Dear Longmeadow Community:

We are pleased to share that Longmeadow High School has been ranked # 308 in Best High Schools by the Daily Beast, a website operated by Newsweek.  Indicators included graduation rates, college acceptance percentiles, college level courses offered, exams taken, SAT scores and ACT scores.  The school department is proud of the variety of courses offered to our students, thanks to strong community support, as well as the rigor presented by our staff. In addition, we are thankful for our teachers as they give students the help that they need to be so successful in high school and college.  Also, we are thankful to the middle schools' and elementary schools' staffs for providing a strong foundation upon which the high school's teachers build.  Most of all, accolades go to our students who accept exceptional challenges and work dligently to be so successful.  Well done Longmeadow Public Schools!

Special Programs Committee

posted Sep 24, 2014, 6:28 AM by Dianne Georgantas

We would like to form a Special Programs Committee that would find speakers, such as Chris Herren, for students and parents at all three grade levels.  We are seeking parent and staff volunteers to serve on this committee chaired by Shelly Warren.  

 
This is important work as we strive to be proactive in helping students understand themselves and make good decisions.  It is also our hope to tool parents with necessary information to guide their decisions in raising confident and successful  children.  
 
Volunteers would attend meetings, research speakers and programs, help with publicity and communicate with schools.  We are looking for a few great people to make a huge difference in the lives of our children!  Please respond to mdoyle@longmeadow.k12.ma if you are interested.  Our first meeting is Friday, October 3, 2014 at 9:00 am in the Superintendent's wing, Conference Room A12.
 
Thank you!
