Students can become certified as Microsoft Office Specialists in our Career and Technical Education program. This option became available during the 2011-12 school year. This year they can go beyond the Microsoft Office certification and become certified as a Microsoft Technology Associate.
Congtratulations to the following students have earned their certifications so far this school year.. See who have made the list.
Their teacher is Sharon Jacobs (McElroy), CTE Business Teacher
Teach Prep through LCC offers each student who passes the ITA course (with a B or higher) 13 credits for the business management part of the class and 5 credits for each certifications they earn.

From the Attendance Office
If a parent or guardian plans on picking up the student during the day, they must provide the attendance office with photo identification.
Checking your student out because he/she is sick? Stop in at the nurse’s office first.

Welcome to Robert A. Long High School in Longview, Washington. R. A. Long High School was erected in 1927, three years after the city of Longview was incorporated. The school is named for the city's founder Robert A. Long, a wealthy timber baron from Missouri. Our mascot, the Lumberjack, was so named due to the area's reliance on the timber industry. The school is on the city Historical Register.
R.A. Long competes in the Greater St. Helen’s League at the 2A level. Our student enrollment is around 1000 students. Rich Reeves is our Principal.
