tgbwc thanks for the clarification.

Any opinions on Graham Park Middle School? The reviews about the area in general seem a little sketchy.

Graham Park is to say the least..... Not so great all. I will refrain from calling it terrible but there's much room for improvement. The middle school is very run down and there used to be gang activity. A good friend of mine used to be a guidance counselor there, good luck!

It seems that the Graham Park thing has turned me into a new search direction. 2 of my children were previous students in the Portsmouth public school system so anything similar or worse isn't going to work!

If I have any questions on anything new I find I will be here to ask. You guys/gals have been a help already!

(1600 and below enrollment) If anyone has an opinion on these schools please share!!!

Patriot is severely overcrowded so if you are looking for a smaller school, I would consider Brentsville over Patriot. Also, Brentsville IS open to transfers, so if you live outside of the boundaries, your child may be able to enroll there if he/she is considering one of the specialty programs (Cambridge, etc.) Due to overcrowding, Patriot is NOT open for transfer, so unless you live in their boundaries, your child will not be able to go there.

I am not familiar with Manassas Park high school; Manassas Park and the city of Manassas each manage their own school system, separate from Prince William County Schools.

I thought the Montclair neighborhood fed into Saunders Middle School versus Graham Park?

There's no Manassas park high school. I think you mean osbourn park, also I wouldn't really recommend Brentsville depending on where the OP is from.

"Northern" parts of Montclair feed into Saunders, but the "Southern" parts are Graham Park.

To add to any confusion, a portion near Southlake feeds into Benton.
