Attendance Areas

FCPS students are assigned to schools based on the geographic location of their homes, and they matriculate to the next level of schooling according to feeder areas.

Children who attend a childcare center may attend the school that serves the center unless that school has been restricted to out-of-district students due to overcrowding or because it is in its first year of operation. See the 2017-2018 restricted schools list (Adobe PDF File, opens in new window).

Contact the FCPS Student Services office, 301-644-5238, for more information about which school your child should attend.

Feeder Areas

FCPS students matriculate to or "feed into" the next level of schooling according to feeder areas. This structure provides a way to coordinate and improve delivery of instruction and other services such as bus transportation and food service.

Each feeder area is organized top-down, according to the high school the students will ultimately attend. Some feeders are "split," meaning that after students complete study at an elementary or middle school, they do not all transition to the same middle or high school.
