- Longview combines rigorous academics in the traditional curriculum with electives hardly ever seen on the pre-K to 12thgrade level. Some of our electives include computer programming, game design, C++ programming, debate, sociology, anthropology, Japanese, philosophy, storytelling, graphic design, engineering, construction, create a business, etc. Longview`s small, personalized environment supports both academic learning and social development. Beyond classes, students help run the school through participation in the school legislative body -school meeting - and the school court system-judicial committee. Our unique approach supports students in becoming independent, responsible, thoughtful individuals as they develop into well-rounded, happy young adults.

Every family seeks alternative learning environments for a variety of reasons. For our family, we decided upon Longview, not only because of their smaller classes which fosters deep connections with the teachers, which in turn promotes powerful learning. But because our son suffers from severe obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Evaluations were performed to rule out learning disabilities, but in fact, it revealed he was performing above grade level on all subjects.In brief, our son's decisions, and the acting out of his compulsions,stem from a physical abnormality in his brain. At such a young age he cannot compete with the strength of how his nuero biological illness steers him. Longview School is a small student run community that follows a democratic model. With this structure in place, it gave my son an opportunity to experience decision making on his own, a sense of self control new to his developing brain. There is a body of teachers that encourages and stimulates all of the senses. Learning takes places on so many applicable, real life levels at Longview.Longview accommodates children from pre-k - 12th grade, (I know because I decided to place my typically developing 4 year old here as wel) on multiple levels, there are bright students with challenges, and all the staff at Longview are equal to the task.Longview has empowered my son, but everyone is an individual and treated as such. The staff is there to meet the students where they are, and meeting their needs.
