Brilliant teachers who always have time for another question, know the answers, and know how to teach where to find answers. The entire LSAS staff demonstrates lifelong learning and are passionate educators. LSAS pivoted to online learning within a day of the state shutting down schools due to COVID-19. As it was before COVID-19 and will be after, the school provides high-quality educational experience with fully engaged students and faculty. LSAS provides sanity, structure, and support for students with a strong emphasis on emotional health - enabling persistent deep learning opportunities. The new school campus is amazing: excellent scientific lab spaces, creative spaces, study cubicles, cozy library, and spacious grounds that include a historical site and old trees. We look forward to getting back to the school building once it is safe to do so.

LSAS offers a very challenging, yet inclusive and welcoming experience for students who have intellectual curiosity and take learning seriously, while being respectful of, and caring for one another. The teachers are excellent and well-loved among the students. The kids work hard but have so much fun too! My daughter has not been here long but you would think she's been friends with these kids for many years because they create strong bonds with one another. Highly recommend this school for all high-achieving students who really care about their education and want to be prepared for college-level work and independence.

LSAS is an amazing school in Northern Virginia. They have wonderful teachers and administrative staff. The teachers are very creative, and they design great courses. LSAS has been doing a great job of virtual learning in the current environment. I'm very pleased that we found this school a few years ago.

My eighth grade daughter just transfer to LSG from public school and she is happier going to school than she was in a long time . Staff and teachers are dedicated and friendly. She is studying and learning a lot more than before and enjoying every minute of it! The holistic teaching aproach works wonders.

Incredible, that's the way I feel about the changes in my son since enrolling at LSG. The small classroom size, teacher and parent involvement, non-traditional learning are just a few of the things my son loves about LSG. Fun field trips, off-site lunches, guest speakers, and variety of clubs are some of the things that make the school great. His grades are more consistent, and his positive social awareness is amazing to observe. This school has really changed our lives in a very positive manner.

When our daughter had reached her sophomore year in our local , overcrowded, public high school, she had reached the point of refusing to attend on a regular basis despite her best efforts to overcome the daily anxiety she was feeling. She told us that it wasn't the academics that were causing her angst but the daily environment she was learning in. After exploring the options the public school could offer her and comparing local private schools, we arrived at Loudoun School for the Gifted this past November. They invited our daughter to shadow for a few school days. After 2 days at LSG we saw almost physical change in our daughter and she knew instantly she was meant to be at this school. The warm, inclusive, friendly and dedicated staff have been invaluable to our family. We now feel like our daughter's last 2 1/2 years of high school will prepare her for making a very informed college choice ,bring back her confidence in the education process and finish high school with great pride in herself.

This is an excellent school for the self-motivated and curious child who thrives in a smaller classroom setting. Teachers are engaged with students and students learn at their individual pace. The environment is supportive and encouraging. The students are not just taught core subject matter but how to research and analyze what they learn. Learning is project based and also predicated on the students'' interests. An outstanding school!
