Longview Independent School District Reviews

Longview high school, so far, has definitely been an experience. On movies and tv shows high school or portrayed as this terrifying, huge place where everyone hates freshmen. In actuality people only have a slight grudge against freshman and there’s a lot more independence. I’m able to pursue what I’m interested in and have many classes at my disposal to choose from. I’m able to take the International Bachelorette program for free and see what it’s like to be a college student. Although, some of the bathrooms have to be a health code violation of some sorts and many of the stair cases are covered in crusted food and look as if they haven’t been washed in weeks. The school is old, and I get that, but there are definitely some issues that need to be worked on aesthetically.

Longview High School is a diverse school with several schools within a school, ie; IB, Dual Credit, College Readiness, Career & Technology. Sometimes I feel that they are trying to meet every ones needs, therefore the “schools” don’t reach their full potential. The environment is pretty good, I guess most high schools have students who want no part of school and cause disruptions - I have never felt unsafe. We have SOR officers on our campus- which helps in those students who might want to stir up trouble to think twice. I have enjoyed my time at LHS.
I attended the Longview Independent School District (LISD) growing up and graduated a proud Lobo from the Longview High School. I now have two children enrolled in the district, and now that I am a mother there are things I would like to see improved. The biggest problem is currently with bullying and teachers not being able to reach the students to make a big enough impact on their lives. When I was a child, I can recall my elementary teachers believing in me to where the sky was the limit. Now teachers only do that to their star pupils which brings on the bullying.
