    • Annandale High School is a high school in Annandale in Fairfax County, Virginia. This school is one of the oldest schools in the area, founded in 1954 and still on its original campus. Annandale was built to relieve congestion and overcrowding from Mount Vernon and Fairfax High School.
    • Annandale's diverse student body, challenging courses, outstanding activities program, and positive professional staff provide ample opportunities for every student to succeed.
    • There are eight active honor societies, as well as numerous academically oriented clubs. The school offers a full range of athletic opportunities for males and females, and outstanding athletic achievements include numerous state championships and Coach of the Year awards. Annandale High also excels in the arts; its band has been recognized as a Virginia Honor Band, and it is proud of a top-rated orchestra and choral program which have earned the music department Blue Ribbon status from the Virginia State Music Educators. Annandale's outstanding theater program has trained students to take on lead roles in college productions all over the country. Award-winning student art work and photography are on display in museums and public buildings throughout the area.
    • The school is supported by an active Parent-Student-Teacher Association that fosters parent involvement in the educational process. The school also receives strong support from the community surrounding it, including local businesses and community organizations. Annandale offers a fully staffed college and career center, open to students and parents; houses adult education classes; and encourages community use of its facilities.
    • The school was all-white segregated institution when it was founded in 1954, but by the late 90's the proportion of white students was only 44% and there were students from 73 countries, speaking 43 different languages. For this reason, it was visited in 1998 by President Bill Clinton's President’s Advisory Board on Race for round-table discussions. As of 2006, 87 nationalities and 46 languages are represented in the student population. A Gay-straight alliance club is present at Annandale and incidents of intolerance are low. Many groups have strong club activities such as the Latino, West African, and Jewish culture groups.
