High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Hayfield Secondary School is the oldest secondary school in the Fairfax County Public Schools system. It opened its doors in 1968 and graduated is first seniors in 1971. William L. Oehrlein is the Principal of the school.
The land that Hayfield sits on was at one time part of George Washington's Mount Vernon estate. Because of a small natural spring underneath the school the land literally served as a hay field. The land itself changed hands numerous times, until 1956 when developers constructed Hayfield Farms, the first of many housing developments in the region. Hayfield Secondary opened its doors to middle school students as well as 9 through 10 grades during the 1968-1969 school years, while still under construction.
The school is erroneously mentioned in Remember the Titans as being all white. While at the time the majority of students were white, the school has always been integrated. As the region which it serves grew, overcrowding became a major issue at Hayfield, and by the late 1990s it routinely exceeded its intended capacity. A renovation of the school began in 2002 and was completed in 2005. Further helping to relieve the pressure on Hayfield was the opening of South County Secondary School, also in 2005.

Hayfield is a secondary school, meaning it serves grades 7 through 12, but the high school and middle school students are generally kept segregated. The middle school has an honors program and the high school offers both honors and Advanced Placement courses.
Hayfield's high school teams compete in the AAA Patriot District of the AAA Northern Region of the Virginia High School League. The school's most notable athletics programs are boy's basketball and wrestling. Their mascot is the hawk and their school colors are orange and white.
The mission of Hayfield high School is to provide an environment in which all students will acquire the necessary skills to become responsible thinkers who appreciate diversity and are productive citizens in their community.
