Principal's Message

BRHS Families,

School is underway, and we have had a good start. It was nice to see everyone at Open House at our ninth grade parent orientation. The first days of school went well, students knew where they were going, and the overall schedule worked well. Counselors get a number of requests for schedule changes the first weeks of school. A friendly reminder, schedule changes may not be possible.

Homecoming is September 23. Our students will participate in spirit week starting September 19. We will give the PSAT on October 14 to grades 9-11. We are planning our annual Powder Puff game for that afternoon.

Please continue to check our school web site for new information. Teachers will be updating individual sites, and we frequently place new information under "School updates 2022-2023."

I hope to see everyone soon at a school event. Please feel free to reach out to me should you need anything.

Thank you for your continued support.

David Spage, Principal

Broad Run Embraces Student Ownership (Personalized Learning)

Shifting to personalized learning is not a simple task, but Broad Run High School is ready to embrace the challenge. We understand that a significant effort will be necessary to create a vision, develop instructional models, acquire digital tools, and help students to take ownership of their learning.

As student ownership continues to gain prominence in Loudoun County Public Schools, our staff has carefully considered what a successful implementation of high-quality personalized learning entails. Thus, we have adopted the Core Four (Goal Setting & Reflection, Collaboration & Creativity, Student Centered Instruction, and Voice & Choice) which is designed to provide our students with a guide for student ownership implementation.

The elements of the Core Four can be viewed as spectrums that can be started immediately in small, building on what we are already doing in the Broad Run classrooms. To master the Core 4 elements, Broad Run understands that it will require significant dedication of time and resources, but, as usual, we are ready.
