Welcome to John F. Long School

principal brian johnsonLonghorn Families,

I would like to welcome you to John F. Long School. I am Brian Johnson, the Principal at John F. Long. This will be my sixth year in the Cartwright School District as an administrator. I also have several years of teaching experience, ranging from second to sixth grade.

If you are new to John F. Long, I'd like to tell you a bit about our school. We are a K-5 school located off of Campbell and 55th Avenue. Our school was named after a man named John Frederick Long. He was a visionary, a businessman, and a philanthropist. His life was mapped by his hard work, his innovative ideas, and his vision. He once stated, "I certainly do not see myself as anything out of the ordinary." He was certainly not ordinary and he has certainly left an impression in the west valley.

At John F. Long school we strive to work towards his vision by ensuring that we also strive for innovation. We work hard to ensure that we create an environment where our students can have a successful and rewarding school experience. We work to prepare our students so that they may be successful in the future so that they can be learners and leaders. We believe that our students are capable of success in adulthood and that we are a part of that journey. We provide opportunities for your child to develop their full potential in a safe environment. We have a wonderful school and our staff is dedicated, motivated, talented, and willing to go that extra mile ALL children.

Again, welcome to John F. Long School and if there is anything that we may help you with please feel free contact us.

Mr. Brian E. Johnson
