Lake Braddock is a wonderful school!! Most of the teachers are extremely nice and they really care about each individual student. They really care about having you succeed and they are very flexible in helping you if you need extra help. They have top of the line orchestras, bands, and choirs, great athletic program, and even better academics. I highly recommend this school!

Posted Jun 2, 2014 This school is the best school ever. It's rated in 7th place for the best schools In Virginia and 127th in the nation. It has won many district and state champions for each sport. Many famous people have went there. They offer an advanced academic program provided to middle schoolers. The teachers are great and the staff is quite diverse. The school is very large which is great for a diverse environment. Everyone who attends this school loves it here. Many of the students are very spiritive about lake Braddock.

I am a graduate from LBSS after spending 7-12 grades there. It can certainly be intimidating due to its size, but the size provides so much diversity and opportunities for involvement. In 7th grade I was in the 'moderate' math classes. My teacher recognized that the class was too easy and spoke with my parents about bumping me up to algebra in 7th grade - which is what I did. This was only the first example of the great teachers at LBSS who take the time to observe how their students are doing and do what they can to advance them. That single bump-up to algebra (plus many other teacher interventions) provided so many opportunities down the road (I am now a doctor) that allowed me to go to top-tier universities and achieve so many great things. Besides the attentive and caring teachers, the size of the school allows limitless elective opportunities. I was doing automotive shop and metal working the same year as German and computer design. The size of the student population, in my eyes, is only a plus and provides a fantastic environment to mature and learn.

This school does poorly with children who have autism with behaviors but are also academic taking state standardized tests. The teachers are not qualified to teach children with autism. They do not have any training except learning disability training in their subject. My son is having a horrible transition to secondary school. They have no idea how to handle disruptive behaviors or how to modify classwork and tests to accommodate his needs.

I have attended Lake Braddock for 7th and 8th grade (AAP), and I have loved every bit of it. The teachers are fantastic, but you do need to be focused and prepared for class to get good grades. I enjoy that the teachers will take time to see you after class or during Bruin Block (the equivalent of study hall), but you have to approach them our else you will not get paid attention to due to the large amount of students. I have generally found that people are kind, but some kids are very competitive when it comes to grades and just life in general. There are also many extra-curriculars to attend as well as school events, but you have to put yourself our there and ask about them because many are not highly advertised. The band program is also extraordinary in the middle school, the band director is great, music is exciting, and you get many opportunities to learn about music from professionals that visit. The only negative is that it is a secondary school so seniors are in the hallways with seventh graders.

I think a lot of the teachers are better quality and educated but school has huge issues with discipline. A strong liberal attitude prevails so if you arent one of them expect to be labeled an "outsider".

This is a very large school that make sure that students don't slip between the cracks. I have three kids and they are all very different. Each has had a great experience a this school.

I went here for middle school, and honestly those two years made me become bitter for a while. There is a huge clique problem, and the children are snobbish, rude, and very cruel at times. It's hard to make friends if you are new. The classes and school are way too big, and there are a lot of fights that happen behind teachers backs due to the size of the school. When I moved to WSHS, I had a much better experience, and made a bunch of friends just because people are nice. The only good thing about that school is the orchestra, its top notch. If you want to feel relaxed, welcomed, good experience in high school, don't come here.


Posted August 25, 2013

Huge bullying issues. Lots of clicks. My kids are threatened there daily to include kids threatening to kill them. Peer mediation is a joke and just makes it worse.

This is an excellent school. My daughter went there for 7th and 8th grades (AP). She LOVES it and doesnt' want to leave. Teachers are doing amazing job there and we never noticed any lack of attention from the school.

This is my sons 3rd year at LBSS. 7th and 8th grades were okay, but I noticed problems beginning in 8th grade. 9th grade has been extremely difficult. My son is GT qualified and always has excelled academically but LBSS is so huge that he has gotten lost. There is no connection between students and teachers. My sense is that teachers are overwhelmed and students are expected to swim or sink on there own. Given his strong IQ and academic success thus far I had high expectations for LBSS, because the school does have a lot to offer. But it is too easy for kids to slack off and get involved in the wrong things, mostly because no one is paying attention. I have tried connecting with the school counselor to get help, but the counselors are also overwhelmed and I haven't gotten any help there. A school that size also has safety issues which we have run into. At this point I am considering transferring my student to a private school and this make me sad.

Former LB student for GT here. LOVED THIS SCHOOL. I sobbed when I left it after middle school. This place makes you feel alive. Some people don't like the size. I love it. If you don't fight to work hard, you will get swallowed whole, but there are so many options for support and extra-curriculars you won't even notice just how challenging it is. All of the instructors are world-class (this is Northern VA, anyway), but the older ones are academic gods. I'm talking truly gifted, strict yet compassionate people who deeply care for your FUTURE and WELLBEING, not just statistics and test scores (which LB excels in). Oh, and the reputation is pretty much the best you could ask for. LB is like a factory for math and science geniuses who end up going to the TJHS for Science and Technology (#2 in the ENTIRE U.S.) I get raised eyebrows when I tell people I'm a former Bruin. The parent group is incredibly organized for its gigantic size. You WILL find friends here almost immediately because of the variety of choices you'll have. LBSS will automatically give you an advantage in the long run.

My son just started middle school at Lake Braddock this year. At the start, I was really overwhelmed by the size and was worried it would be too much for him. To the contrary, he LOVES Lake Braddock! And I couldn't be any happier with the teachers and the outstanding quality of the education he's receiving. It still blows my mind how much this school has to offer and how well organized the parents are in spite of it's size. I look forward to the next ten years that my kids will be spending at Lake Braddock.

Having just moved to the area, we chose here because of the schools...so far we aren't too dissappointed. The academics are wonderful if you know in advance what you need. We transferred and missed the GT app. date, so my child isn't in the program and is taking quite a few classes he already took at his other school. GT only goes to 8th, so we can't do much about it. AP starts in 9th. The teachers seem to be very supportive and available online. Blackboard makes it easy to keep up with your child's day. There are a ton of extra curriculars as well. Not much in the way of late buses though, which makes it hard when both parents work. Confusing because of the size, but you get the hang of it.

I currently have four children in this school from 7th through 10th grade. We couldn't be happier with this school and are sad to be leaving it due to a military transfer. It will be hard to find a school in our new area that can favorably compare to Lake Braddock.

I couldn't have been happier with my Alma Mater, Lake Braddock. As a recent college graduate, I found that Lake Braddock provided good preparation for the rigors of collegiate academics. Even though the school was large: I was still able to make lifelong friends with students and even the teachers! I loved it so much I hope that one day my kids will also attend! My only wish is that I could have enjoyed the renovations that will make the school even better!
—Submitted by a student


Posted March 3, 2010

everyone is nice to one another and even the toughest teachers arent so bad at all. i love how with the renovations, the school is so much cleaner and neater than other fairfax county schools. we have so much things we can take an advantage of because we have a great schedule system and teachers who are always glad to help students out.

Posted March 1, 2010

While overall I am satisfied with LBSS , its size is a huge negative. They offer many activities but be prepared to compete for these slots. The mentality to be the best is overwhelming. Much competition between competing FFX schools and the focus is not always on the student. This school would be much better if it were in a traditional middle school/high school setting. Middle school mixing with high school is not beneficial.

PROS: The curriculum is challenging - our daughter works hard to keep her grades up. The extracurricular activities are top notch. They have a fabulous music department with a first rate orchestra and band, phenominal sports opportunities and an overall supportive staff. CONS: If your child is shy or reserved, they can 'get lost in the crowd'. With an enrollment of nearly 4,000 students, it can be overwhelming. It is also easy to fall behind with academics - so stay in touch with the staff and your child. Blackboard is a big help, as are the weekely progress reports sent out via email. OTHER: This is my daughter's 3rd year at LBSS and I couldn't be happier. Most of the are great - couldn't be happier for my daughter.

This is an excellent school. It is tough though so make sure your students are ready for a challenging curriculum before you enroll them here. Over 30AP courses plus honors courses in every area, orchestra, band, guitar ensemble, every sport you can imagine, computer programming and many more classes offered. It is a large school but that is part or the reason that they school had so much to offer. They even have late buses to bring children home 3 days a week free of charge for after school activities or tutoring. This school had it all and it prepares the children for college!

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Virginia Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
