Longview High School has some of the greatest educators in the nation! The school kept up with. The one thing I would change is how money is disbursed throughout the school. Of course, the sport's department earns the most money, but some organizations need money as well like Longview FFA. Everything else at the school is perfect.

I would often see the dog walking around the school, checking out our classrooms. Lockers were not allowed because of previous drug issues, I actually think taking away the lockers was a great idea. The doors were electronically locked after certain hours. Security cameras were everywhere! In every corner of our hallway, parking lot, also I remember seeing some in some tree in the courtyard. Our security police had an office in one of the buildings too. Longview High School did all of these various security precautions for us.
The most fun I've had at Longview High School has to do with some of the classes offered and some of the teachers. The engineering courses were my favorite courses that I have ever taken. Ms. Letzo is by far the best teacher I have ever had because she is the only teacher who has ever been able to successfully teach me history. A downside to the school is all of the bullying that goes on there as I was bullied by the same kid from the 6th grade to the 10th grade and the school did nothing about it. Another downside would be that students who do no work at all are allowed to have extra time so that the school can have a 100% graduation rate. But if the school just let the students fail, I would be much happier because they are lazy.
