Broad Run High School

Broad Run High School is a public secondary school in Ashburn, an unincorporated area in Loudoun County, Virginia, United States. Broad Run is part of the Loudoun County Public Schools system (LCPS).Of the county's fifteen public high schools, Broad Run (BRHS) has experienced the most change in both its physical and demographic environments during its nearly four decades of existence.

Originally a rural school serving all of eastern Loudoun County, the explosive growth of the county's population beginning in the mid-1990s has resulted in systematic reduction of Broad Run's attendance area as it spun off eight of the district's high schools from within its original boundaries. Initial surroundings of farm fields have been replaced by housing tracts and the school now possesses one of the most culturally diverse student populations in the region. Broad Run High School is also located in one of the most affluent city and county in the country with recorded average income of more than $100,000 per household. After a period of high construction in the early 2000s, the number of high schools in the area stayed the same until Rock Ridge High School opened in 2014, and Riverside High School completed construction in 2015.Nicknamed “Cornfield High” when it opened, Broad Run’s facilities, academics, and extracurricular environments have always been challenged by its location in one of the fastest-growing counties in the United States. In 1969, Loudoun County opened its third public high school amidst corn fields in Ashburn to accommodate the growing student populations resulting from new housing developments in the unincorporated communities in the eastern half of the county. Since then, the county population has increased nearly sevenfold (most of it in the east), straining education budgets, infrastructure, and local politics. For Ashburn, this has resulted in constantly shifting attendance boundaries as new schools are constantly being opened, at all levels, elementary, middle, and high. The area’s student demographics have significantly changed as well: Loudoun County’s residents are now the country’s most affluent (per capita), and its ethnic composition continues to diversify as foreign immigration into Northern Virginia increases.
