Longview High School currently has over 2,000 students enrolled on campus. With a motto of “Making a Difference: One Student At A Time,” LHS strives to graduate young people who are well prepared to either directly enter the workplace or go on to higher education. As part of the International Baccalaureate Programme, LHS is developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who recognize their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet and help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
LHS has over 300 course offerings giving students unlimited opportunities to learn and grow as students and as people. LHS has a large music program featuring an award winning Marching Band, a College and Career Center, a comprehensive Library/Media Center and even an ROTC program. There are well over two-dozen Clubs and Organizations catering to a wide variety of interests from Art to Chess, Debate to Agriculture, the Internet to Theatre. As part of the UIL (University Interscholastic League) Academics program, LHS students compete as teams in Robotics, Debate, Mathematics, Theater and Journalism. Whatever a student likes to do, they’ll find a challenging and comfortable place for them at Longview High School.
Longview High School is also home to the Career and Technical Education facility where you’ll find programs in automobile repair, plumbing, welding, television and video production and, as part of the culinary program, a professional kitchen that is so good it’s used by Kilgore College.
LHS is now one of only a handful of schools in the United States to have a program under the Just Keep Living Foundation, sponsored by Oscar winning actor and Lobo Alumni, Matthew McConaughey. The program has a limited number of select students and tracks their progress in school and after graduation.
LHS features a dual-credit program that allows students to earn college credit for certain courses they take so that when they enter college, at the community college or university level, they do so with a healthy start toward earning a degree. In some cases students have done so well earning credits, they have graduated from high school with the equivalent of a community college associates degree. In recent graduation ceremonies over 50 students in one class accomplished that goal.
Besides education, Longview High School offers an athletic program that rivals a university. Students may participate in Football, Basketball, Baseball, Golf, Tennis, Softball, Track & Field, Volleyball, Weightlifting and Swimming. Many of our top athletes have gone on to some of the biggest colleges and universities in America with full scholarships.
Among the graduates of Longview High School are an Oscar winning actor, small business owners, executives of Fortune 500 companies, professional athletes, doctors, nurses and others within the field of medicine, law enforcement professionals and members of the legal profession, politicians, members of the military, laborers, inventors and thousands of other productive members of our society!
