Justice High School, formerly known as J.E.B. Stuart High School, was renamed in July of 2018. The name was chosen to represent a fundamental American value but also specifically in honor of three outstanding individuals identified by our community for their roles in championing equal rights, inclusivity, and justice for all: Barbara Rose Johns, Justice Thurgood Marshall, and Col. Louis G. Mendez Jr. The school is located in east-central Fairfax County near the Seven Corners and Lake Barcroft areas. Justice is a comprehensive high school with an international student body and a world class curriculum. Students speak over 50 different languages at home and represent more than 70 countries. The faculty is dedicated to providing a wide variety of classroom experiences designed to meet the needs of its diverse population. All students participate in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP) and may opt to participate in the Advancement Via Individual Determination Program (AVID) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, selecting individual courses of interest or pursuing the full IB diploma.
Justice High School is committed to providing students with a high quality learning experience in an up-to-date physical plant equipped with state-of-the-art technology. All students receive a school issued laptop and teachers use this technology to enhance classroom learning. Justice High School has a rich history of high levels of student participation in curricular and co-curricular activities. Justice is particularly proud of their award winning band, orchestra, and chorus. There are also many opportunities for students to give back to their community through activities such the National Honor Society, Key Club, and the Interact Club. In addition, the school enjoys the benefits of a dedicated Parent Teacher Student Association, several Booster Clubs which support performing arts and athletics, and partnerships with the Bailey's Crossroads Rotary Club, Urban Alliance, and Verizon.
