New Student Registration
Welcome to Thoreau Middle School!
We're excited to welcome our newest Golden Eagles!
We are a school in Fairfax County, Virginia.
New students fall into one of two registration categories:
- Students who are new to Thoreau Middle School and are not currently enrolled in another school in FCPS.
- Students who are new to Thoreau Middle School and who are currently enrolled in FCPS, but did not most recently attend elementary school at Louise Archer ES, Cunningham Park ES, Flint Hill ES, Marshall Road ES, Mosby Woods ES, Oakton ES, Stenwood ES, or Vienna ES as a 6th-grader. If the student attended an elementary school at one of these schools, there is nothing that needs to be completed. The student records will be automatically transferred to Thoreau Middle School.
To join Thoreau Middle School, determine if your student lives in our boundary by viewing the FCPS boundary locator.
Enrolling parent, if your student does live in the Thoreau MS boundary and does meet one of the two categories above, please fill out the new student registration intake form below. This form will be submitted to Karla Macoto, our school registrar, who will be able to assist you with the new student registration process.
Student families wishing to register a student with a home language other than or in addition to English should please contact the FCPS Student Registration Welcome Center. Here professionals may assess your student's English language skill and/or educational level. These assessments can provide valuable information to the local school and support your child's instructional needs.
