Loudoun School for Advanced Studies

The former principal of a private school in Ashburn is accused in a recently-filed lawsuit of bullying a student and causing her to attempt suicide.

In a $2.03 million lawsuit filed in Loudoun Circuit Court on July 19, Sylvia Israel, the former Loudoun School for Advanced Studies head of school, is accused of confronting the then-16-year-old girl on Oct. 14 about a knife found in a tree on school grounds. The suit, written by attorney Elizabeth Jean Lancaster, names Israel, the 6-12th grade school and Endeavor Schools LLC, its parent company, as defendants.
