Fairfax County Virginia is known for its great school system, its family-friendly suburban neighborhoods, and its peaceful cities and towns. Langley High School is no exception to this rule, nor is the Langley High school district. The quiet, trim streets are lined with breathtaking homes. The community is diverse, affluent and friendly, and the school itself is one of the best high schools in the state and in the entire United States.
Located in McLean, only a short distance from the headquarters of the CIA, Langley High School, as you can imagine, is in an area with an extremely low crime rate. A picture of pure Americana, the students rank high among national students testing scores and the school offers AP and college prep courses for the many above average students that attend Langley High. With its close proximity to CIA headquarters and Washington DC itself, and its easy access travel routes and accessible mass transit systems, many area residents work for or with the federal government.
