Leadership, Integrity, Character, Pride
These four values are what characterize Patriot students and faculty. They are principals that are echoed in the halls and enforced by the people who make up the community. Having been opened in 2011, Patriot joined the distinctive list of Prince William County (PWC) High Schools. It now holds around 2800 students.
If you have an existing or desired passion, interest, or hobby, you can find it here. The school is currently home to around 40 clubs centered on culture, academia, entertainment, art, languages, religion, community support, and more. Can't find a club that suits you? Make your interest into a reality and create one! At the eleventh school in PWC, the ability to put forth an idea and get support is truly possible, and fully encouraged!
When joining the community, expect to be met with tons of school spirit. The student body and faculty know how to get people excited for spirit weeks, cultural celebrations, guest speakers, sporting events, and more. When you become a pioneer, the more you get involved with the community's active body and functions, the infinitely more enjoyable your time here is. Join Red Nation (the school's hype team) at football, basketball, or any sports game, sing your class' song during the pep rally, dance until you drop at homecoming or prom, audition for the spring musical, or show off your talent at the monthly open mic nights at 40410!
In addition to the plethora of available extracurriculars, Patriot offers a variety of classes that fit a diverse group of subjects and career paths. Coming here is truly an opportunity for exploration and experimentation. It might be difficult to decide from the options given, but your counselors and teachers are there to help guide you. At Patriot, you can find a place to fit in. Just be wary when walking in the halls, there might be segways zooming by.
“I think what I liked about my high school is the opportunity to help me grow over the years. I’ve met so many amazing staff members who helped guide and support me. I’ve changed a lot these past years, and I developed important life skills that will stick with me once I’m off to college.”
“Patriot High School has a place for every student. The staff and teachers are all unique which makes any and all Pioneers feel welcomed. Rest assured if a student speaks up he/she is heard. Every interaction between the school and its students is taken with care. The library offers layers of resources too, and the counseling and career department aid all students in their educational and personal goals every chance they have. The opportunities for students to grow in Patriot’s environment are endless. Any student who wishes to succeed will be supported by Patriot High School’s rockstar team!”
“While I’m looking forward to starting the next chapter of my life, I will definitely miss Patriot! From service to debate to mental health advocacy, Patriot gave me the opportunity to engage deeply in the extracurricular activities that interested me. At the same time, it provided an unparalleled learning environment where I was inspired and challenged by my coursework and classmates. I’ll always be proud to be a Pioneer!”
