Changes on the Way at Mountain View

Fairfax County Public Schools will adjust the levels of instruction.

Fairfax County Public Schools will adjust the levels of instruction at the Mountain View Alternative Learning Center—along with three other secondary alternative learning centers (ALC)—starting with the 2012-13 school year

The learning center at Mountain View provided services for students in grades 7-10, but will now offer instruction for students in grades 9 and 10 only. 

Because the center is adjacent to an , students will have the opportunity to access additional high school elective courses. 

The ALC provides continued educational opportunities in core classes. The majority of these students are placed by the FCPS Hearings Office or at the recommendation of their parents or school counselors due to behavioral or academic difficulties. 

Other changes coming at ALCs this year:

  • Montrose Alternative Learning Center, which provided services for students in grades 7-10, will now offer instruction for students in grades 7 and 8 only.
  • Pimmit Alternative Learning Center, which provided services for students in grades 9-12, will close.
  • Bryant Alternative Learning Center, which also provided services for students in grades 7-10, will now offer instruction for students in grades 9 and 10 only.

The Woodson Adult High School Program will move its day program to the Pimmit Hills site, 7510 Lisle Avenue, Falls Church, while retaining its night program at its current location in the City of Fairfax. FCPS will rename the program Fairfax Adult High School.

The adult high school program offers students over 18 years old—who have not completed high school in the United States or another country—the chance to earn a high school diploma. Most students in the program have full-time jobs and study with FCPS on a full-time or part-time basis.
