My 8th grade daughter has really enjoyed her time at Bull Run. She has been in the higher tier of classes and has been challenged by fabulous teachers who have exceptional involvement in their students' success. Bullying for both of my daughters who have attended Bull Run has been nonexistent compared to other schools. The principal, Mr. Phythian, takes considerable interest in his students and is attentive to parents and their input. However, to be accurate in this review, there are some students in the lower tier classes who are constantly disruptive to the students and teachers with their language and gestures. The staff try their best to handle these situations to little avail.

Bull Run is a decent school in a nice area of Northern Virginia. We've been here for one year and I purposely waited until near the end of school to submit a review. The teachers and administrators are in many respects doing good work with the students but they're really limited in what they can do by the extreme overcrowding. While the opening of a new facility may help (Fall 2012) I strongly recommend that any prospective parent obtain real numbers from the Prince William county school board prior to enrolling here. I expect that overcrowding at other schools may be addressed by shifting boundaries, resulting in Bull Run remaining oversubscribed. The extreme class sizes - 32 students per teacher- result in a lack of individualized attention and other adverse impacts on the learning environment. There is a lack of opportunity to participate in sport due to the huge numbers trying out, and the "try outs" go on for three or four days before final cuts. My wife volunteers at the school and we both have witnessed the "controlled chaos" of the hallways. Your child needs to be prepared for that type of challenge if you choose Bull Run.

Biggest Middle School in the state of Virginia. The school is over capacity by 700 kids. The building is so packed kids are in portable classrooms outside. the teachers are good but have way to many students to properly teach. Because of the large population the teachers have to be very rigid and strict. The hallways often have "traffic jams" and the cafeteria is packed. Because of the population it is difficult to get on teams for sports or in extra curricular clubs. This will change next year when the new Middle School down the road opens and takes 500 students. But if you are planning to move to the area, be careful in which district you move. The new school (Ronald Reagan) has yet to pick staff and Bull Run will change dramatically next year.

Much too rigid in administration of discipline. Like many schools facing the political pressures of helicopter parents, the administration is too quick to punish or ostracize students with behavior and learning problems. The school appears to be striving to be an "exam school" rather than the neighborhood public school that educates all comers.
