Langley High School's close proximity to Washington, D.C., places it in a community of well-educated, highly motivated, family-oriented individuals, many of whom are professionals. This location also provides a representation from businesses and governments, both domestic and foreign, which results in a diverse population and exposes students to many different cultures. Community participation by such an education- oriented and varied parent population is an important factor in making Langley High School an exceptional educational experience.
More than 95 percent of Langley students go on to four-year colleges. The curriculum places great emphasis on core subjects and college entrance requirements. Students and their families have come to expect that students will graduate with a solid core foundation in the humanities, math, science, and foreign languages. Advanced placement courses and examinations are available in all areas of upper-level mathematics, science, social studies, English, and foreign languages. In addition to the core curriculum, business, art, vocational, and technical offerings are available.
Langley's program for learning disabled students provides individual assistance and mainstream classes with regular and special education teachers working together in teams. Langley also has a program for students with autism in which peer helpers and other student assistants play a vital role. A full athletics program and broad student participation in a full range of extracurricular activities add to the highly energized environment of Langley High School.
Honor and integrity are important goals of the Langley mission.
