Just like every other school in the Fairfax County Schoo District, Lake Braddock is not far from being almost perfect in every way! The teachers, administrators, and parents are all welcoming and will make you and your child feel at home during the six years of schooling. The academics are rigorous, preparing the students for the course load of college and beyond, and the sports are also highly competitive and fun to watch. The diversity factor is high and is also increasing, which teaches students to respect and work well with people from different ethnicities, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds. Lake Braddock has something for everyone, whether it's athletics, theatre, art, or just simply learning, attending school here was the best decision my parents have ever made for me.

Lake Braddock has been an excellent experience for me. While it is a big school with many students, this allows anybody to feel included, no matter what they believe in or who they are. There are so many clubs and extracurriculars from which one can find students just like them! Furthermore, the school really prepares students for college, as it offers many AP courses with rigorous courseloads. Nonetheless, most teachers are willing to help their students not just earn the grade they want, but also truly understand the content presented to them. It has been an excellent experience for me and my peers and I will miss the school dearly.
While at Lake Braddock Secondary School, I was able to take advantage of the excellent athletics program-- I played soccer for all four years of my high school career. I also feel that the high caliber academics pushed and supported by the teachers have helped prepare for success on the SAT and my overall candidacy for acceptance into top colleges. I am happy to say now that I have been accepted into my top college choices and I can certainly say that Lake Braddock Secondary School was a major contributor in this success!
