In addition, today each of those students took a PowerPoint pre-assessment and passed the first time and earned their certification. Each of them wants to study the items they missed and take the exam again to earn a higher score. The exam is 700 points to pass out of a total of 1000 points.
It is exciting to see excitement grow this year as students see this valuable certification as important to their high school and future career.
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.
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. Tech Prep is a wonderful opportunity for our students to earn college credit and not have to leave our campus.

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.
