Friendly environment, lots of fun school activities, classes are solid! The students are diverse and very welcoming. Teachers are easy to talk to and very understanding of students busy schedules. Counselors are extremely flexible and compatible, also very helpful. Champe has many interactive in-school activities for the students and it gets us all very excited! They are a good way to have all the grades interact as well.

As a senior at John Champe High School, I have experienced it all. The school is wonderful and they provide you with plenty resources to help with whatever your needs are whether it be counselors and their willingness to help, or the teachers and their dexterities.

However, with all schools come shady and unbehaved students that do not follow school policies or even federal laws. For example, there are students from all age groups who participate in activities of recreational smoking of marijuana and e-cigs. Although it is a state wide issue, and now considered a national problem, schools such as John Champe should be more involved with students about risks and consequences of committing illicit and unlawful acts.

Although illegal smoking is a major issue and is one of the reasons I rate my school as an uncompleted 4 stars, JCHS excels in its academics and sports where everyone gets a chance to compete if they are dedicated to strive for success.
The atmosphere is very diverse and inclusive. There is a club, class, or activity for almost every interest and the focus on academics as well as athletics is fundamental. It is run a little differently than the other Loudoun County Public Schools but one still receives a high-quality education. The student spirit could be more equally spread out, and the overlapping workload could be taken into account by teachers and coaches, the food could be improved, but these dont diminish the bright, well rounded and open minded individuals that Champe creates.
