Justice High School

 

With one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation, Justice is a public high school located in Fairfax County, Virginia, about a 15-minute drive from Washington, DC. Founded in 1959, Justice High School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) world school hosting the IB Diploma program, the IB Career-related program, and the IB Middle Years Program. Justice students hail from more than 70 different countries and speak over 50 different languages.   Relative to many other Fairfax County schools, Justice experiences higher rates of factors that research shows can be associated with low student achievement, including:

 

  • Poverty - nearly 67% of Justice students are qualified for free or reduced rate lunch

  • Mobility - over one-fifth of Justice students experience non-promotional school changes each year, causing disruption in their educational programs and peer and teacher relationships

  • Primary language other than English – about half of Justice students are English-language learners 

Despite these challenges, Justice students graduate at an impressive “on-time” rate of nearly 90%  , with 77%  of those graduates pursuing post-secondary education. Even more important -
close to 75%  of graduates who qualified for free or reduced rate lunch go on to higher
education after graduation! These statistics show how motivated Justice students are to achieve
and how dedicated Justice faculty, staff, and parents are to support their achievement.
