History

Long View High School began in 1994 as a unique educational option within Jefferson County Public Schools. Long View is designed to serve those high school students whose needs are not being met by traditional, comprehensive high schools. 

Now in our 24th year of operation, we have graduated over 300 students. 


We are dedicated to JeffCo Schools vision of building bright futures. Long View High School is so named because it is our philosophy and approach: students and teachers take the long view toward education. Real accomplishment takes time and effort.

We, of course, do also have the beautiful long view of the Denver metro area from our building and that enhances our school name. Medieval castles were built on hills so that the long view of the surrounding countryside could offer warning of approaching danger. The long view was what provided safety for the community; and safety is a significant component of the Long View experience.

Our Mascot

The Phoenix is our mascot. The Phoenix is a peace-loving, mythological bird that was reputed to be the most beautiful in all the sky. When its life force was ebbing low it was able to regenerate by rising from its own ashes. The Phoenix seems an apt metaphor for the students at Long View who come here seeking a new and better academic life.
