My son transferred to Lothian from a school in Prince George's County in 2nd grade, during the middle of the school year, as we bought a new house.

The teachers have excellent communication with parents. The curriculum is far beyond other schools that friend's children attend. His test scores for MSA are higher with each passing grade. They do Benchmark Testing every so often to determine if the child has got a clear understsnding of what has been taught, and readily advance the child to the next level as soon as they are prepared for it, instead of having to wait for a quarter or year to end as other schools. The teachers go above and beyond at this school and I simply could not ask for a better education or learning enviornment for my son. Read less

Both of my sons attended Lothian. During their education there, I was always impressed by the dedicated, nurturing staff. Although the school population is very diverse, the staff works hard to address individual's needs. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to anyone moving into the area.
