About Longview School

Longview School is a New Hampshire Department of Education-approved, diploma-granting, day program that provides education and therapeutic services to high school students. It is operated in a log lodge located on a 154-acre campus bordering Pawtuckaway State Park in Deerfield, New Hampshire. Longview School takes full advantage of the wilderness setting for project-based academics, inspiration for visual and culinary Arts Based Counseling programs, and Adventure Based Counseling activities.

Small class sizes are comprised of no more than eight students. Unique programs and activities, such as multi-day hiking and camping expeditions, culinary arts, and outdoor classrooms, set Longview apart. Longview School can provide a creative approach to teaching struggling students by helping them understand their behaviors and build relationships in pro-social activities.
