Longview ISD is a culturaly diverse school with lots of different ways to get involved. Ther are many group and clubs to join and sports. Our teachers are mostly alright and try there hardest to help us secceed. Even though our facilities and food aren't the best, the drive and motivation of the teachers,staff,and even students definitley makes up for that!

If you are in the right programs, LISD is okay. The IB programme, honestly, is the only part of LISD worth attending on the high school level. Hudson PEP is good too, although the district literally is working against their high standards and test-in status, and the GT program at Foster was good when I was there but small changes they have made to the program have changed it from what I knew and enjoyed. The high school is centered completely around football and band, so if that's your style, cool. If not, you'll be disappointed. Past the high school, the upper administration is deeply entrenched in bureaucracy to the point where it is not conducive to making positive steps toward improving the failing parts of the district. I'm glad I graduated when I did; my family is thinking of transferring my brother to another district when he moves up to middle school.
What I liked about Longview Independent School District(LISD), are the teachers, sport availability, extracurricular activities, prep for college readiness and the diversity of expressing each and every different type of ethnicity at that school. The teachers are generally very friendly and engaging in the subjects I have had the opportunity to participate. They offer Dual-Credit College courses allowing you to gain hours before even entering college. Next, Longview offers a large range of sports high-schoolers can participate in including golf, tennis, swimming, and several others. There is literally multiple options as to what you want to do. Lastly, Longview Independent School District is a very diverse school district, with all kinds of different cultures brought from all over, we have had kids from Cuba, from other states, Oklahoma, Louisiana. Regardless, there are many new possibilities to experience at LISD, that is if you're willing to give it a chance.
