I have lived in Loudoun County my whole life, born and raised! I recently moved to West Virginia, and will tell everyone I know about how awesome Loudoun County is. I attended John Champe High School for my first two years of high school, and it was the best two years of my life. The teachers, the environment everything about it was amazing. I would do anything to go there again.

As an individual that has spent a majority of my life moving all over Virginia with my mom, I enjoy my time spent in Loudoun County. Out of all the places I've been I have felt the safest in Loudoun. I am so lucky to attend Loudoun County High School as the friendships and people I meet will last a lifetime. I live in Leesburg where shops are convenient and as a new driver the roads are easy to get around. I am happy to call it my home.
I'd give western Loudoun 5 stars but eastern Loudoun 2 stars. There is a huge difference. Eastern Loudoun has way higher crime, jam packed roads, horrible drivers and just stresses me out. Western is VERY beautiful but they are slowly building it as well. Nicest areas are west of route 15. Mental health seems off due to a high amount of suicides in the area. Great schools and police. It is a clean county.
