There are many after school activities at Longfellow, and many are very good in their fields. Late buses are 3 days a week for extracurricular classes, and there are many staff that stay to manage everyone.

Some notable activities:

Science Olympiad: Longfellow's Science Olympiad is one of the best in the country. It is super selective to get in, and it's a disappointment if they don't get to the National Competition!

Quiz Bowl: Another very successful club, Longfellow's Quiz Bowl team is currently ranked 2nd in America

Model UN: Although not as well known, Model UN is successful in most competitions they go to, and many win awards in it.

Tennis: Tennis is pretty much the only club sport at Longfellow. It doesn't compete in competitions like that, it is really just a small club where my and my close friends socialized and played tennis on Monday afternoons! The organizer of the club, who is an awesome gym teacher, is amazing at tennis and usually creams us if we play him.

Lancer Library: Basically homework club, where it's very hard to do homework in. There's always people talking even though it's a library, and the computer lab is always filled up.

Lancer Athletics/Open Gym/Pick-Up Basketball (Three different clubs): The name says it all! Usually Basketball is played, but when the 8th graders aren't there yet, there are pick-up games of soccer.

That's pretty much the just of it, there are buses Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Many students that attend afterschool activities only come on late bus days, since transportation is hard.

Some other notably clubs:

Rubik's Cube Club, TJ Prep, Debate Club, Mathcounts.

Longfellow Middle School is an amazing school. The principal has won numerous awards and she is very on top of things. However, some of the teachers could use more training. They are pretty strict and claim to be preparing the kids for high school when in reality we had much more freedom in high school.
Reflecting my years here, I realize how much fun I had learning here, highly recommend this school. Also Mrs. Miller’s the best teacher here.
