When I grew up there it was a nice place to live, now it looks like a third world shithole. What is there to celebrate??. Pretty much a glimpse of the future for the rest of Fairfax Co.

If by diversity you mean learning just how bad our society will sink to in the next generation, then no.

I'm all for 'diversity'. I don't care what race you are as long as you contribute to society and can interact with me in daily encounters in a civil and understandable manner. I'm not one of those "speak english er geddout!" rednecks. However, it is a legitimate pain in my ass to have to interact with uneducated lowlifes. This includes white trash, but from what I have seen, most FCPS schools have a fairly low population of illiterate caucasions. I basically see blacks and whites on the same level. If they make something out of themselves and work to succeed, I have nothing against them (I am white for what it's worth). If they don't, they are the same in my eyes: trash. I am more bothered by the majority of hispanic immigrants. They just seem to have this attitude about them. They dress like thugs, refuse to try to build respectable futures, etc. I'm also bothered by any immigrant who refuses to learn english and do well in school. I'm fine with them keeping their culture, but they shouldn't do anything that interferes with mine.

From what I have heard, South Lakes and Herndon are cess pools of underachievers and immigrants, but I would have to see detailed demographic reports to tell you what the worst school is.

Oakton's a good school. I consider South Lakes and Herndon to be the same, but compared to Oakton, they're "ghetto". Compared to Langley and McLean, they're downright Section 8. They're still good schools in my opinion, but they're rougher.

Annandale is at the bottom of the rung in all the statistics. From personal experience, I will also say it is Hell Hole High. Administration runs amuck chasing its own tail. There may be some good teachers but they are soon disillusioned too. The new re-distrticting plan will certainly turn it into a ghetto school.

Think that Westfield is a candidate for the worst. Plenty of known problems that are strewn across FU. But there are plenty of internal problems, like last year forgetting to mail transcripts in time for early admission candidates. Oops, guess the admins were too busy taking care of all of the unnecessary problems stirred up by the large student riff-raff population.

They did this to Herndon in the mid to late 90's. Redistricted the far North Reston and Great Falls kids out of Herndon and into Langley. So you took a bunch of active parents and kids who were good role models out of the school AND the kids who were moved are denied a diverse experience. Which might seem meaningless until the Langley kid having lived in White Hamlet managed to get into Harvard and discovers that it is less than 50% white.

To this day, I'm amazed how parents in that area, along with Vienna, convinced the SB to switch the boundaries to Langley and McLean High Schools. It makes no sense in terms of location. Other high schools in that area are much closer and could use more students. I think certain member of the SB were either paid off or smoking crack.

If we are talking straight demographics, you have to go with one of their three alternative education highschools. I know Pimmit Hills HS has a caucasion population of about two percent (6 out of 300). But non alt ed schools i would have to go with annadale

Diversity is bad because most black children are raised by their mothers or their grandparents. Once the children are in their teens, they are out of control because their mothers are tired of raising them or their grandparents are too old to do a good job. Black man need to start marrying their baby's momma or this crises will never end.

This is a lame statement. Most high schools produce students in the top 5% on standardized test scores. Which standardized test are you talking about? You didn't say how many they produce---just that they produce them. FCPS also produces students who score in the bottom 5%. What does that say?

Either Annandale or Falls Church. Thirty, even twenty years ago these were good schools populated by middle class white people. Now these schools are filthy cesspools populated by grotesque illegal latinos. And the white limousine liberals have long since moved away.

My two cents is this: I went to Oakton. It has competent teachers but this does not make up for the retarded pointless curriculum... which is everywhere. So aside from most of the teachers being superior I think Oakton is full of kids that think they are somehow better than other people in the population. However, the fact is they cannot recognize that they are highly benefited from circumstances that they could not have had control over since birth, yet they think this makes them better than others. Basically most Oakton kids are spoiled brats... but everybody knows that!

but if you drive in the neighborhoods around the school when school lets out, you will see the local kids, many who live in the apartments around there, walking home. And they are obviously not well off. Somewhat scruffy, in fact. So there must be a lower SES element at the school. And only 8% of the graduating class goes to UVA, which you would expect to be higher, so it isn't exactly one of the premeir HS's in the system - not the worst either mind.

Yes there are low income kids at Oakton. The vast majority of them live within walking distance to the school. However, the majority of Oakton kids are rich due to the bizarre zoning of the school boundaries. If you compare Oakton to most other schools in the county or to most other schools over the country it is a country club by comparison. Not to say that there are no rough elements at Oakton. The fact is it is a public school, and public schools are public schools

You are sort of correct. However, as someone who attended Falls Church in the early 90's, I can tell you that the shift from mainly Caucasian to Hispanic and Asian had already occurred. Falls Church, even at that time, was considered a heavily gang occupied school. As proven by the 1994 gang shooting outside the Multiplex theater in Merrifield in which a Falls Church student (and known gang member) was shot and killed. Falls Church was a dump then, and from all that I have heard, it is only infinatly worse now.

You do realize that not everyone wants to go to UVA, some people who get in there may want to go to another school. Why are people around this area so obsessed with a pretty boring school with no school spirit which isn't even better than William and Mary academically anyways?

The rate of grads who go to UVA is higher at Langley, McLean and even Madison - not sure about Woodson - but that's why: obviously the better schools have higher rates of matriculation to UVA.

Based on these results, the worst school is Mount Vernon High. While this shows the ACT results, Mount Vernon comes in last with the SAT's as well. (http://www.fcps.edu/cco/pr/satact/sat2010.pdf)

You'll still get a better education there than at thousands of other schools around the country. Scary, isn't it?

But how much of these ACT scores can you attribute to the school's efforts and how much can be directly correlated to the socioeconomic status of the parents? You need to compare FCPS to other areas with the same overall SES and parent educational level. When you do that, I don't think FCPS comes up as so superior. The question is "how much value is the school adding?" Most of the success of the child can be directly correlated to the home (SES is the easiest data to garner) and not to the school as is evidenced by the wide range of scores at any given school and by the range between schools with different levels of SES in their population areas.

Any individual student will only get a "better education" ANYWHERE if the student and the student's family are active (doing homework, parent supporting and attending school events, student and parent communicating with school, student being fed and having a place to sleep, etc.). FCPS can try to get all those things to happen, but when all is said and done, it's the family that has to put in the effort.

Maybe the best way to define a school is to take note of how most graduates turn out.

Which high school has the highest number of gradutates in jail, involved in some henious crime, dead from murders, police shootings and drug overdoses?

Interesting. I live near Falls Church HS on Jaguar Trail. While I no longer have high school age children, I’ve talked to a number of (white) parents who send their kids there and they all have good things to say about the place.

Admittedly, it’s a “diverse” school. But I spend time jogging on the track and have chatted with students, coaches and the like. I don’t get any indications of a “gang” issue or concerns. The several times I’ve voted there, everything looks clean, neat, organized. I’ve never detected any type of police presence, typically an indicator of trouble.

For whatever its worth, USN&WR rated the school #532 in the USA out of 22,000 schools evaluated and #22 in Virginia. Like many Fairfax County High Schools it was recognized as one of the nation’s best high schools.

No doubt, the heavy Latino presence drags down some indicators. I don’t mean that as a racist comment, but kids from immigrant families, living in homes where English is a secondary language, and run by parents who have little education, are not likely to do well in school. I don’t think that means they are bad kids or troublemakers although I’m sure there are some in the school.

Frankly, most of the kids look like pussies.

I love Annandale High School. I graduated from that school 2002. It was a fun and good school. You will miss a lot when they changed the pytamid. can't believe you like Woodson I hate that school. We played against that school and we beat them. I am sad because my parents might move in to a condo and give me and my husband the house. and my 4 year old daughter won't attend my high school. sad sad sad it a great school. Spanish and Asians people are not bad stop being racist

If you like illegals who harass women and throw trash all over the place Annandale is great. If you like drunken Koreans driving around at night with no lights on their black BMW or Mercedes Annandale is for you. If you like signs that you can't read because you can't read Korean then Annandale is wonderful.

From what I understand some of the so called 'ghetto schools' are coming around.

Falls Church HS is looking up since they opened the Mosaic District and rising property values, and also the new principal is 'cleaning up' from what I have heard.

Lee High school is getting a new principal. Also, the opening of the Springfield Town Center will be raising property values throughout Springfield and bring a lot of new development. I predict this will probably attract wealthier, more educated people to the area.

Edison High School has raised their SAT scores significantly within the past year and have added new students to their boundary, so they are adjusting well.

Hayfield Secondary School is getting a new principal after the former principal died of cancer.

Stuart High School: This school has been in the spotlight recently, but the principal is trying. They are also getting a new assistant principal. The issues with this school have been reported on so much that now things are GOING to happen.

West Potomac High School: Not sure if this is considered a 'ghetto school' but they have also just recently got a new principal that is making a positive impact.

Complete BS. It's too small and not been there long enough to do anything like that. Plus most living there and around aren't families with kids for the most part.

Nor will Springfield change in any appreciable way.

Nor will changing principals make any difference in any of the rest.

It's a downhill slalom for other than maybe a select few FCPS high schools for the foreseeable future.

You obviously are not cultured in the education system. The principal of the school is everything. If you get stuck at a school with a bad principal, god help you! I'm not sure why you are being so negative. FCPS has so much going for it and many FCPS high schools are within the top 50 in the state.

Also it is probably worth mentioning that while Fairfax has some very diverse schools, there are schools in Henrico and Chesterfield counties with a majority of white students that are doing far worse than schools with substantial diversity in Fairfax. Is it just a coincidence? Doubtful, Fairfax has it down to a science.

Anyone who is bashing FCPS for incompetence is truly ignorant to the real world. It is no simple task to run one of the largest public school systems in the US on a tight budget while still beating everyone else.

Okay, take this challenge.

Your worst enemy has a student and you are allowed to chose where that student goes to HS.
The choices will always be Mount Vernon or a random name drawn out of a hat.

What name could ever be drawn that would make you chose it over Mount Vernon to send your enemies kid?

exactly

Mount Vernon is the worst.
If you disagree you are a Moron who probably went to MV so you don't count. literally, you can't count. I've seen the test scores.

Samething happened to Marshall HS along RT 7 west of the toll road. There were some difficult years after the boundary change, but Marshall has now become a very good school. I actually would prefer to have my kids go to Marshall than Langley.
