Loudoun County Public Schools (abbreviated LCPS) is a branch of the Loudoun County , Virginia , United States government, and administers public schools in the county. LCPS’s headquarters is located at 21000 Education Court in Ashburn , an unincorporated section of the county. Due to the rapid growth in the region, LCPS is the fastest growing school division in Virginia and one of the fastest growing public school districts in the United States , serving over 50,000 students in the 2006-2007 school year . LCPS is the fifth largest school division in Virginia, surpassing the enrollment of Henrico County Public Schools in the 2006-2007 school year. The superintendent of schools is Edgar B. Hatrick.
The public school system in Loudoun County was established in 1870 to fulfill the needs for free education after the Civil War and in an era of Reconstruction. For most of its history, LCPS has served a rural county, known for its dairy farms . Since the 1960s, Loudoun County’s population skyrocketed, accompanied by that of the school system. More than thirty schools have been built between 1996 and 2006.
The LCPS system, while operated on a day-to-day basis by the Superintendent , is managed under the direction and authority of the Loudoun County School Board , a nine member panel elected by citizens in the county. Eight of the nine board positions are divided among voting districts that represent communities throughout the county, while the ninth seat is elected at-large by the entire county. The voting districts correspond to those used for Loudoun County Board of Supervisor elections. Unlike the Board of Supervisors , the chairmanship of the School Board operates on a rotating basis between members, while the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors is always the at-large seat. While the School Board makes decisions relating to school policy and curriculum, it receives funding through the Board of Supervisors.
In the 2008-2009 school year, LCPS was 62.6% White; 8.0% Black; 13.0% Hispanic; 13.4% Asian; and 0.2% Native American.
All high schools serve grades 9–12 unless otherwise noted.
Loudoun County currently has 11 middle schools, all of which typically feed into one high school currently, or in the near future. Older middle schools such as Simpson, Blue Ridge, Sterling, and Seneca Ridge originally were able to carry about 1,000 students, but have all went or are going through expansion projects that will allow them to carry 1,200 students once the projects are complete. Newer middle schools built since 1995 when Farmwell Station opened typically have capacities of 1,200 to 1,350 students depending on the age of the building and how fast growth was around the particular school when the school opened.
Serves grades 6-8 unless noted
LCPS had one intermediate school (Harmony Intermediate School, now Harmony Middle School) in the western part of the county which served 8th and 9th graders. This was only a temporary concept, which ended after Woodgrove High School opened in Fall 2010.
LCPS currently has 51 elementary schools, which are nearly all community based, with over half of them opening in the last 10 years. Newer elementary schools throughout the county can carry approximately 800 to 875 students. Older elementary schools in the eastern part of the county can carry anywhere from 400-600 students. There are some rural elementary schools in Loudoun County as well, nearly all of them in the western part of the county. They are much smaller in size and are much older facilities, typically holding enrollments of about 100-150 students.
Serves grades K-5
