Longview High School was like any other school in Texas; prided itself on sports and academics. The culture at Longview was second to none! Not only did we celebrate achievements in sports, but we celebrated academic achievements as well! The school was well rounded in all aspects. They had a IB program and also a Dual Credit program to go towards college credit; something I took part in. There is nothing I would change about Longview High School.

I joined Longview High School halfway through my Junior year. Joining a new school that is so big is scary, but during my first week everyone was welcoming to me especially the teachers. Although I didn't have any friends at my new school I quickly started making friends and got very involved with the school. I am now on the yearbook, choir, and soccer team. I am very happy with my move here and I am proud to be a Lobo!
Longview High is a great place to get a high school education! Longview has a great staff and academic program which is one of the best in East Texas. There IB program is top notch in preparing kids for college and setting students apart from other high schoolers. Longview has a great sports program with dedicated coaches in ever sport, and a state champion caliber football team. Not only is the campus big and beautiful, but it’s also new and improved with renovations happening every year! If I had to pick a highschool for my children, Longview high would definitely be a place I would consider sending them.
