Fairfax High School had a great showing at All-District Band auditions having the most students selected of any high school in the district. Thirty-six FHS band students were selected and another 9 were named alternates. Special kudos to four FHS students who were selected for All-Virginia Band: Imogen Hendricks (1st Chair Oboe in the State), Aiman Khan (French Horn), Samantha Kim (2nd Chair bass Clarinet in the State), Sarah Zotian (French Horn).
The FHS Band program is again recognized as a “VA Honor Band” for the 7th year in a row.

Fairfax High School advanced auto tech students spent over 14 months to build a buggy from scratch. The buggy was shown at the Washington DC Auto Show in the DC Convention Center earlier this year. Under teacher Less Steger, the students were approved for a grant from the Foundation for Applied Technology to purchase the needed materials. Students in Advanced Auto II and Advanced Auto III worked together from November, 2013 through January 2015 to show at the DC Auto Show. The buggy is now for sale.
