2020-21 New Student Registration

Welcome to Thoreau Middle School!

We're excited to welcome our newest Golden Eagles for the 2020-21 school year!

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.
  • 7th and 8th-grade students who are new to Thoreau Middle School and who are currently enrolled in FCPS, but did not most recently attend one of the elementary schools at either 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 in 2019-2020. 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.l.

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 form below. This form will be submitted to Jill Hendelman, our school registrar, who will be able to assist you with the new student registration process. 

Please submit this form in English.

Is This the Student's First Year in FCPS?

Additional Information

Are You Registering a Student Whose Home Language Is Other Than Or In Addition to English?

Student families wishing to register a middle school 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.  

Do You Have Special Registration Situations? 

Special registration situations can include nonparent registrations, situations involving divorced or separated parents, homelessness, foster care, and foreign exchange students.
