New Student Registration
Welcome to Mountain View High School!
We're excited to welcome our newest Timberwolves
New students fall into one of two registration categories:
- Students who are new to Mountain View High School and are not currently enrolled in another school in FCPS.
- Students who are new to Mountain View High School and who are currently enrolled in FCPS.
To join Mountain View High School, first determine which school is your base high school (Centreville HS, Chantilly HS, Fairfax HS, Falls Church HS, Herndon HS, Langley HS, Madison HS, Marshall HS, Mclean HS, Oakton HS, Robinson SS, South Lakes HS, Westfield HS, Woodson HS) by viewing the FCPS boundary locator.
- If your base high school is Annandale HS, Hayfield SS, Justice HS, Lake Braddock SS, Lee HS, Mount Vernon HS, South County HS, West Potomac HS, or West Springfield HS, your school will be Bryant High School. Please visit the Bryant High School website to enroll.
If you do meet the criteria above and would like to enroll at Mountain View High School, please fill out our new student registration inquiry form. This form will be submitted to Maria Rodriguez, our school registrar, who will be able to assist you with the new student registration process.
Please submit this form in English.
17 Year Old Students
- Before sending a request to the Non-Traditional School Programs office to transfer a student to Mountain View High School, communication between the counselors or administrators from both the base school and Mountain View High School must take place to determine appropriateness of placement.
- The base school completes the NonTraditional Schools Programs Elective Placement Form and forwards it to the Non-Traditional School Programs office for approval. A copy of the Nontraditional Schools Program Elective Placement Form and all required documentation are faxed or sent to Mountain View High School.
- Upon receipt of an approval letter from the Non-Traditional Schools Programs office and after Mountain View has received the aforementioned paperwork, the parent may call for an appointment to register the student at Mountain View.
- Project Opportunity (Pregnant & Parenting Teen Program) students must follow the above procedures.
Students Age 18 or Older
- Approval from the Non-Traditional Schools Programs office is not required.
- Upon receipt of the student’s discipline file, a current transcript, SOL test scores, and immunization record, the student may call for an appointment to register.
- If the student is denied enrollment, all records will be returned to the base school.
Students Receiving Special Education Services (Age 17 and above)
- Placement at Mountain View is determined by the IEP team. The student’s base school must initiate an IEP, and a representative from the Mountain View Special Education Department must attend.
- Prior to the IEP meeting, the base school must send to Mountain View a copy of the current IEP, current eligibility packet, updated Fairfax County Public Schools transcript, SOL test scores, discipline file, immunizations, and attendance records.
Hearings Office Placements
- If a student is placed at Mountain View HIgh School, an entry conference must be held between the student, the parent and the principal of Mountain View High School. The student’s discipline file, a current transcript, SOL test scores, and immunization record must be received before this conference is held.
- If the student is eligible for special education services, placement also requires an IEP team decision.
