This such a community based school, my kids feel safe going here, and they don't ever leave unhappy going to school.

This school is great when we were looking at where to move to, the prime factor leading us to this area was the school. It's great, I love it, my sister loves it.... well, as much as you can love it having to go there and learn every day. The teachers, for the most part, are really cool and nice, and as for the students there aren't really cliques or anything so its great.

When we first moved into the area we were supposed to be in the Turner Ashby school district. With a change in the school districts my children were moved to the Broadway schools instead. To begin with it upset us but now I believe it's the best thing that could have happened. The fine arts programs are FANTASTIC! The scholastic opportunities have been wonderful and have challenged my children who are both in the challenge program. The people in the school seem to be more accepting of all types of people and the friendships they have had are much better than what they were making in the Turner Ashby district.

Broadway is a wonderful school. I have been enrolled in a lot of different schools but Broadway is the best. You have a lot of one on one with the teachers. At my other high school the teachers acted like that didn't like there job but at BHS the teachers act so wonderful and they are just absolutly amazing.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
