Loudoun County Public Schools Reviews

Living within Loudoun County, I have been given an abundance of opportunities to excel within my education. First, having access to a more challenging curriculum, such as AP and Dual Enrollment courses has been very beneficial for receiving college credits. With these rigorous classes, I have been able to earn myself credits to benefit my college plan in the future. These courses have also allowed me to acquire and apply my knowledge further passed boundaries I never thought were possible for myself. Second, as I have been a student at two different high schools within the county due to moving for my father's work commute, I have found that the teachers within the county have an incredible drive to aid student success. Whether it's staying after school to provide review sessions or help, they are more than willing. Overall, I have found that within the county, I have been given great opportunity and challenge to provide me with a positive springboard into my college career and future.

I'm greeted by people with bright smiles on their faces daily. The teachers have been absolutely tremendous from my experiences from Elementary School through High School. My teachers have been professional and consist of great knowledge. As a student, you feel very comfortable because you know your teachers truly care about you and want you to succeed. Teachers are constantly asking what they can do better. Which engages students more and also sets an example for students to learn constructive criticism. With the competitiveness we have in Loudoun County, academically, it really helps that we have amazing mentors. If I could improve anything at my school, I'd wish they gave students more freedom. And I say freedom because I feel almost as if my school is too structured. I wish they relied on students to have more responsibility and a say, because, from what I hear, college is completely different. Students could be more prepared for the real world.
I have been attending Loudoun County Public Schools for ten years, and I have been very pleased with my experience. The teachers and administration all care about the success and well being of each student and work hard to foster a learning environment that can maximize both. As one of the richest counties in America, LCPS is also very well funded and provides an array of resources and facilities. I am also enrolled in the Loudoun Academy of Science. Although you must apply to attend, it is an advanced STEM program with a very strong staff. Although not quite as large or prestigious as Fairfax's Thomas Jefferson High School, the AOS (and the newly added Academy of Engineering and Technology) boast an equally rigorous curriculum, but also a much more cooperative environment. The new facility is set to open for the 2018-19 school year. The sports are also exemplary. The number of state championships in all sports won by Loudoun Schools speaks for itself.
