I like that Loudoun County took away midterms and final exams. They were extremely stressful to deal with on top of SOL's. I like that clubs, student leaders, and sports are able to create social media accounts for others to stay up to date and keep in contact with the school and activities. Overall LCPS is a very inclusive and supporting school district and I have enjoyed my 12 years in the county very much!

The quality of Loudoun County Public Education is spectacular! Many of my peers go to amazing colleges! There are, however, some major flaws in LCPS: teachers are not very relational--they mostly are driven by the results they can create instead of how they can inspire students, and the students themselves are abundantly closed-minded--they are harsh toward opposing points of view and the teachers nourish this harshness.
At the beginning of my years in the Loudoun County School system, I felt that I was being well prepared for college and learning pertinent information to my future. As time went on, I believe Loudoun County became to lenient with students due to fear of retaliation from parents, students, and simply social critics. Loudoun County has taken away practically all punishment for any late work while also allowing multiple retakes. I believe this hinders students as they head off to college because this is not the way a college runs. While I thouroughly enjoyed my time as a student here, I think that upcoming graduates are going to be less and less prepared for college.
