Parent & Student Reviews
Longview School was a truly life-changing find for our son. The small class size allows him to have an education tailored to him- one that allows him to expand his strengths and support areas he struggles with. At the same time, he is also able to feel a part of a true community, mixing with kids of all ages. The way in which the school promotes a sense of responsibility and ownership in the school is really remarkable. It has allowed my son to grow not just as a student, but as a human being.
Longview is a school like no other, and our child has been to many. Schools often claim to be “student-centered,” but Longview actually is. The teachers understand that each child has different interests, needs, and challenges. There has been true, meaningful collaboration among us, the parents, our child, and the teachers. Read more...
I grew more from 2 years at Longview than from the previous 10 years at public school. While the standard public school system of education held me back from chasing after my somewhat-unconventional goals, the Longview community was fully supportive of me and my decision not to go to college, but instead to pursue creative writing on my own.

I can not say enough great things about Longview! When public school wasn't working for our two daughters, we thankfully found Longview and it has been such a blessing for our family! Longview provides a unique approach to education that focuses on the whole child and meets them where he/she is at. Every teacher in that school knows my girls so well and knows what their strengths, weaknesses, interests, and learning styles are. When something isn't working, the staff if approachable and through open communication, adjustments can be made. Read more...
Just as things got very stressful at public school, my mom mentioned that she found a small school close to where we live. This was five years ago. I struggled with social anxiety andit didn’t help to be in a classroom with 20-30 kids. I was not able to concentrate which made me stressed, and I gave up easily. I tried out Longview for two days, and even though I felt awkward being new, I felt like I had a chance at fitting in. In the first year, I was still very shy, but I instantly made friends with another student. Read more...
