Mr. J. Lupton Simpson was an educator in Loudoun County for 39 years. He was instrumental in propagating the middle school concept in this area, which needed to cater to its growing student population. This concept was finally realized in the 1971-1972 academic year, four years after Mr. Simpson’s passing. The present building was finally completed in 1976, and was named and dedicated J. Lupton Simpson Middle School, a fitting and appropriate memorial to a man whose life was education. In all the different schools he taught and administered at, the entire student body and broader community demonstrated their great admiration and and very high respect for Mr. Simpson.
