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.

As an upcoming senior, I would have say that I have truly enjoyed my time at LHS. From experience, I know most of the teachers and faculty members are always willing to lend a helping hand. The environment at LHS is diverse and full of energy. Twice a year we come together to help our community in blood drives and other events like Honor America and Touch A Truck. However, in all the positives there are negatives. Like most schools, the food is not great and there are people that make the high school experience a little dreadful. There are staff members that see the students as inexperienced kids and demand respect when all they do is disrespect those around them. Some of the students can be troublemakers and ruin the freedom for the rest of us; however, those students are only a small fraction. As a student who follows the rules and is always on the honor roll, I absolutely detest being shouted at when all I am doing is walking in my school.
My experience at Longview High School is incredible. All the teachers are willing to take the time out to really help you. Even teachers I️ did not even know helped me improve as a student. Longview High School is all about education and career goals. They have so many programs to get you prepared for whatever you choose. The administrators make sure you have someone there to talk to. Also the atmosphere is just a loving place to get education, learn lessons and getting involved. Our principal makes sure we have activities where the whole school is involved with each other. That is my experience with Longview High School and I️ love everything about it and all the staff.
