Loudoun County Public Schools Reviews

I had an amazing experience with LCPS. I have been attending Loudoun County since second grade and I graduated high school in 2017. The teachers were amazing and always worked hard to help you succeed. The only thing I wish they could have improved in was the math department. Loudoun County Public Schools struggled finding teachers that were able to teach higher math levels. Other than academics, loudoun county public schools offered an extensive amount of clubs and activities that fit everyone's needs. If an activity was not offered, the school would allow you to find a staff member to sponsor it. During all of my years in the loudoun county school system, I never felt threatened or unsafe. The administration at Francis Hazel Reid, Harper Park, and Heritage High School did a fantastic job ensuring that all of the students were always take and took many precautions when it came to safety. From a college perspective, I felt very prepared leaving Heritage High School.

Loudoun County Public Schools are helpful and supportive. The staff welcomes all questions and concerns, the teachers are patient, and explanations are given in various ways. However, the school's lunch could have better options. The food tastes greasy and fake, but in reality, it's not the school's fault. Concerned with lunch, a classmate contacted those who deal with its menu and they came into our class to discuss the issue. We were informed that the school runs on a tight government funded budget which has certain food requirements. These requirements include having a specific number of fruits, vegetables, and drinks provided to the students that need to be seen by the government as healthy. The people who ran the lunch arrangements also said that food is expensive, and since the budget is low, there are limited choices for the money that remains. Despite this, however, the schools remain good and helpful. An issue was presented, and there was an effort in addressing the concern.
Loudoun County hosts many events and uses its assets to improve the environment for students. Being in Loudoun County has allowed me to experience not only the top education, but also surround myself in diversity. Park View High as an example is extremely diverse. Immersing yourself in an environment of vastly different individuals opens your eyes to new ideas and cultures. With those discoveries, students take them beyond high school and into the real world. Loudoun County additionally recognizes students achievements with their annual Excellence in Education banquets. At these events they commemorate students and encourage students to continue their efforts and work towards success.
