History of Longmeadow 
As a suburban community of 9 square miles with a rich, historic New England heritage, Longmeadow offers a beautiful and wholesome residential setting along the Connecticut River for a population of approximately 16,000 residents. It is an idyllic enclave where generation after generation choose to reside. There is no industry within the town limits. The community is a pleasant, old New England town characterized by stately colonial homes, tree-shaded streets, and parks with swimming pools, tennis courts, and playgrounds. Settled in 1644, Longmeadow has many historically designated houses, interspersed with attractive newer ones on spacious lots. It is an ideal place to raise a family.
Introduction to Longmeadow Public Schools 
The Longmeadow Public Schools currently serves 2857 students in grades PreK-12. The district is composed of six schools including three elementary, two middle, and one high school. The Longmeadow Public School district is responsive to the high educational expectations of its citizens and the individual learning needs of its pupils through solid foundational learning and well-staffed, well-organized counseling and pupil personnel services.  The district's high-achieving schools are a major reason families move to the town of Longmeadow.  
The Town of Longmeadow takes pride in a longstanding reputation for the excellence of its public schools, the quality of its teaching and administrative staff, and high levels of community support for education. We sincerely appreciate the commitment shown by the Town and accept, as part of this generous support, our obligation to account for our programs and communicate frankly the successes and the challenges of our district. While we celebrate our high level of educational success in the district, we seek to continually improve the educational experience we provide to our students. Within our professional learning communities, we face the challenge of providing the best education for all of our children while confronting the reality of ongoing budget challenges at the national, state, and local levels. Even with these challenges, we are committed to providing an exemplary school district as our residents have every right to expect of our public school system.
