Longview Independent School District Reviews

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.

I am currently enrolled in Longview High School. When I first moved to Longview Texas I attended Mozelle Johnston Elementary school, currently called Johnston-Mcqueen. From Mozelle I went to Hudson PEP, then to Foster, and finally to Longview High. The teachers have been supportive and motivating throughout my entire educationa career. Administrators are easy, and welcoming to talk to about any problems, and the school offers a multitude of classes and clubs to open students eyes to different experiences, and careers to explore after high school.
LIDSD is a very good district to be apart of. The teachers in this district care for you and want to see you succeed. If at anytime you need extra help their doors are always open. LISD is very good on contacting the parents and keeping them formed on how the students are doing, rather its missing class, absent, have a major test coming up, what time school will be released on early release days and so on.
There is not much I would change other then the time we have to get to school and our lunch is to short for anyone to enjoy
