    I've been very happy with my experience at Valley HS the last 8 years. I've had 2 boys graduate with a daughter presently attending and they have all had a wonderful experience in high school. Staff is responsive and supportive. Students are respectful and overall good kids. It's the perfect size, not too large but big enough to find many different social groups. County just did nice renovations to the school and sports fields in 2014. I'd send my grandchildren here...when the time comes. :o)

    I love Valley. The school spirit is great and it makes all the students feel like they really belong. Everyone I've met has been very kind and ambitious; there are a few stray students who could do better, but they are the outliers and generally students value hard work instead of partying. The teachers are all very well trained and genuinely care about the success and well-being of the students and the rest of the faculty is eager to help in any way they can.

    This school is outstanding. I have two children currently enrolled at LVHS and both love it and are receiving a wonderful education.My kids are two very different people with very different interests, and the fact that both equally enjoy the school says it all. One of my daughters is a cheerleader and loves it. The other is in the student council and KEY club and adores both programs. The principal is wonderful and involved with all of the programs. The teachers are excellent. Both of my daughters are in all the honors and AP classes they can take and have immensely enjoyed the challenges they offer. The school spirit (chiefly the student section present at all varsity games known as "The Jungle") is just amazing. Valley also has a wonderful reputation for its high test scores and impressive college admissions. You cannot go wrong if you choose this school.

    We just finished our first year in this area of Western Loudoun County and we love it. There is a new high school (Woodgrove) that opened, so now the student population at Loudoun Valley HS is "normal"... should be about 1000 students for the 2011-2012 school year. The middle schools are back to being "normal" (i.e., 6th thru 8th grade). LVHS took away the "temporary classroom" buildings that lined the front of the school, and has let go of some teachers, etc. to accomodate the smaller student body. My 3 teens have enjoyed the year and made friends fairly easily.

    I'm a rising junior at Valley and I have had a very good experience. Valley is extremely over crowded with nearly 2,000 students in grades 10-12. It makes for some very crowded halls and late lunches (1:30 for those on D lunch). Both the teachers and students are very friendly for the most part. In terms of teachers, we have really good ones and we have some duds but that's the case any where. We have lots of different extra curricular activites and my guidance counselor has always been very approachable and helpful.

    The students, parents and teachers of LVHS are wonderful. However, the extreme over-crowding makes it an unpleasant and limited environment. We moved to another school district in Virginia and found that our children, who were in advanced (Honors) classes in Loudoun, were at grade level or behind in science, foreign language and AP opportunities. Hopefully, with the new high school, Loudoun will once again offer the great opportunities of previous reviews.

    Loudoun Valley High School is an exceptional school! My education from this wonderful school prepared me for an outstanding college expereince at The College of William and Mary and for life, in general. The guidance staff encouraged excellence and suggested innovative opportunities for advancement. I loved the band department and director whose heart for students is boundless. I had the opportunity to choose from at least 8 private schools and the highest ranked Fairfax County school. I am glad I chose LVHS. Many thanks for the opportunities, challenges, and encouragement.

    Great school, with wonderful teachers. The problem is the school is way over crowded. The Town of Purcellville continues to fight the building of a second HS(Woodgrove), which is sorely needed. I would not recommend moving into the area because there is no end in sight.

    I recently moved here 1 1/2yrs ago and we move a lot. I am impressed with LVHS! I go to to PTO meetings to see whats going on. The principal attends every single meeting.She is very involved in making things better for the kids. The parent support is wonderful for kids and teachers. The kids are given their chance to excell in school and go on to college. The guidance dept. is very helpful in the areas of directing your child into the right course selection and even colleges. The communtiy spirit here is incredible. We chose a nice area to raise our kids.

    LVHS serves a very wide geographic area, but has a close knit feel. The teachers and students are very dedicated to the excellence of this school, as others mentioned. AP is exceptional. College preparation A+! The-Best-of-LCPS! This website lists enrollment at 1322. It's actually a school designed for capacity-1344, but we have 10-trailers and 2pm-lunches added to serve over 1500-enrolled. This should be grades 9-12, but it's 10-12. Grades 8&9 are 'temporarily'(5years now!) going to an Intermediate-school to alleviate overcrowding in our middle and high-schools. A new high-school was approved to be built-and-opened by 2008, but the town of Purcellville is litgating against the location, at the educational expense of the entire school's population outside of that town. Their litigation against the School-Board is bound to delay the opening of the new high-school. Alternative solutions include busing to far-away schools, split-sessions, or more trailers. Beware and stay tuned!

    Simply put, Loudoun Valley is an amazing school. I went there for two years, which really isn't enough to take in all it has to offer. Valley's teachers actually enjoy teaching and they're good at it. Most of them take extra time outside of class to help students succeed. For example, during study hall, Math teachers will work one-one-one with students who come for help. In general the atmosphere is about learning and doing your best. There are also a variety of clubs and activities, some of which meet during school (during activity period on Fridays). It's definitely a growing school... many people have moved into the Purcellville area over the past few years. Yet Valley is still committed to excellence no matter how many new students arrive (and a new high school is coming soon). I loved attending school there and I really feel prepared for college because of it.
