Superintendent's Welcome

Welcome to the Longview Independent School District!

Longview ISD is a diverse district with about 8,600 students and some 1,400 staff members. Our richly diverse student population reflects our wonderful city and the east Texas area in general. We are proud to be among the few U.S. districts to offer the esteemed International Baccalaureate Programme. LISD also offers the Montessori program for some of our younger students, and dual college credit courses for our high school students. We are an academically acceptable school district, with one campus, Hudson PEP, receiving Exemplary status for more than 10 consecutive years. In addition to this, Texas Monthly magazine named Hudson PEP as one of the best elementary schools in Texas.

Offering the most extensive course selection opportunities in East Texas, Longview High School is the leader in advanced courses. LHS offers more Pre-AP and Advanced Placement courses than other school in the area. The large number of students earning college credit attests to the courses' rigor. An increasing number of National Merit scholars, GLOBE scholars, and Advanced Placement Scholars, and a long-term winning tradition in University Interscholastic League competition offer further evidence of quality curriculum and instruction at LHS. In addition, the successful Academic Decathlon Team confirms the school's emphasis on academics.

Longview ISD believes in excellence for all, one child at a time. We have a high focus on academic achievement, as well as building partnerships with our community. We are truly working to provide a quality education which serves all students in the Longview area. The Longview ISD web site seeks to provide you with the most up to date information for our district. Whether if you are a parent, current staff member, student, prospective employee, community member, or considering a move to Longview, we hope you find the information helpful. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please contact us at aholland@lisd.org

Sincerely,

Dr. James Wilcox, Superintendent
