27 Parent Reviews for Lowes Island Elementary School

My children went there and I was so dissappointed considering it was in an "upscale" neighborhood. There was bullying as well as no help from the principal or the teachers. We moved them to a private school and were very satisfied with the result. Shame on public school these days.

Condescending staff and Lazy teachers. I have had it with the staff in this school, I've only met one person - office staff - who seems to treat parents as competent equals.

We have very successfully been through K-5 and now in SRMS and my youngest is in his 3rd year at LIES. We have only had good experiences here.

Not clear to me why the superintendent and county haven't looked into this school. Bullying is extreme; the principal turns a blind eye. Teacher turnover is out of control. We moved out of the neighborhood because of the weaknesses of this school. Our kids are in another Loudoun school and doing great. ...  Read more

This is by far the worst experience I've had with the school system and people. This school only cares about being #1. Being #1 doesn't necessarily mean you are doing great. It's not how you start the race is how you finish. I would like to see how many children from this school end up being doctors, ...  Read more

Horrible, horrible school and admin. Most of the teachers are newly hired and very inexperience. Bullying is a normal norm of the students. Some teachers are very Prejudice and, discriminating the kids who don't have American parents. If you are a kind of parent who don't object schools miss-treatment ...  Read more
