My daughter will have spent 6th and 7th here at the end of the year. She has LOVED middle school, felt challenged by her teachers, and made amazing friends. We will be moving this summer and she is so sad to leave! The band program has been a fabulous experience for her and she has loved most of her teachers. If you are moving to the area, you will not be disappointed with this school.

I am very happy with Lunsford. Their teachers, staff, and administration are wonderful with the kids and very helpful when any problem arises. In my opinion, it is the best middle school in Loudoun County.

As a former teacher here, I can tell you this is the best school with which I have ever been involved. The teachers and administration work together to make sure no student falls through the cracks. The culture is one of excellence for all!

Lunsford is a new school but it's off to a great start. Principal Slevin is highly visible and engaged.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
