Doug Williams at the Ashburn Colored School
Thank you to Doug Williams, and to the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation for their generous contribution to make our Ashburn Colored School Rehabilitation (www.framersprojects.org) project possible. Yesterday, Doug told our students stories of his own childhood in Louisiana segregated schools without indoor plumbing, and spoke about the critical importance of teachers in making even those spaces beautiful.Posted by Loudoun School for the Gifted on Friday, November 17, 2017
It is our view that the strongest students deserve the best teachers and content, and an environment focused on deep learning.
Our faculty members are intellectually curious and highly capable, and they are here because they want to help students learn deeply and be successful in, and long after, college.
Last year, we went on 24 field trips and 5 overnight trips, had 13 guest speakers, and supported 4 community service projects, including our own Ashburn Colored School rehabilitation project. Follow us on Facebook to see what we're doing this year!
Our students are working on the rehabilitation of the Ashburn Colored School, one of the oldest African American schoolhouses in Loudoun County, Virginia, and, in so doing, are bringing back to life an important piece of the county’s history.
