I recently graduated from Battlefield High School in Haymarket Va and it is great! I loved it, the music program in particular the band is nationally and globally known. I was apart of the Marching Band, it takes a lot of hard work and practice, but while there I went to two national competitions, which we won both times, ( the college Bowls of American competitions to perform both pregame, and halftime! I went to Orlando Florida (Champs bowl 2010-2011 school year) and New Orleans (for the National College Bowl Championship 2011-2012 school year).
The IT program is very awesome and you can actually graduate with your graphic design certification and other computer programming training. Their robotics team is awesome! The Football team is great and the coach is wonderful, the team also won states in 2011 and football games are fun for the whole family, even if your kids are not in high school yet, i highly suggest taking them to a game for a fun weekend!
You can also take AP Classes, where you can take an AP test and get college credit for free with it depending on the score and the college, and getting the advanced diploma is quite easy, and you do not have to take AP or advanced classes to get it, and I recommend this, because colleges look at and have certain requirements of classes that you HAVE to take in order to get in, and the advanced diploma requirements is the for the most part the same as all the colleges I had applied to and looked at.
