Fairfax is for Small City Lovers
by Marina Brito, Realtor®, Fairfax High School Boundary Specialist
The Fairfax High School boundary encompasses the City of Fairfax and beyond. The City of Fairfax is a small, independent city within Fairfax County with lots of history, its own government, and a unique school board situation (the schools are run by the County board, and overseen by the City board).
The Fairfax High School boundary is a very convenient place to live because public transportation is easily accessible, and it is easy to get to award-winning hospitals, world-class shopping centers, and there are a lot of fun things to do.

Finding a home by school can be a challenge
If you have tried to find a home by school before, you have probably found that it’s a challenge to cross-reference homes for sale on a typical home search website with their assigned school.
Simply finding homes “near” the school won’t do
The issue with typical home search websites is that they only display homes by city or zip code. Some of them display homes “near” the school. Well, that won’t do you any good since school boundaries span cities, zip codes, and just being “near” the school doesn’t mean that the home belongs to that boundary.
You want a home INSIDE the school boundary. Not just “near” it…
