Time to Name 4 New Public Schools

The Loudoun County School Board is seeking name suggestions for four new schools—one elementary school, one middle school, and two high schools.

The elementary school (ES-28), scheduled to open in fall 2018, us under construction on a site adjacent to John Champe High School. The middle school (MS-7), off Braddock Road in the Aldie, is also scheduled to open in fall 2018. The Dulles South area high school (HS-9) will open in fall 2020 on a site off Lightridge Farm Road west of the Stone Ridge community. And the second high school (HS-11) will open fall 2019 on a site adjacent to Brambleton Middle School.

School Board members are in the process of appointing residents to four naming committees. The committees will consider geographic and historic names, as well as names of deceased individuals who significantly contributed to improving life in Loudoun County, in Virginia, or the U.S.

School name suggestions should be sent to Loudoun County Public Schools Department of Planning Services, 21000 Education Court, Ashburn, VA 20148 or emailed to lcpsplan@lcps.org by March 6. Citizens suggesting a school name are requested to provide background information to aid in the selection process.
