Intra-District Transfers (year-round)

Intra-District Transfers (year-round)

While students are expected to attend the school that serves the area in which their residence is located, occasionally, and only under very special circumstances, students are granted an inter- or intra- district transfer request outside of the open-enrollment window.  This include transfers for sibling privilege, senior privilege and for students who move within the MVLA district boundary.

Information about the MVLA Open Enrollment Process

Open Enrollment window for 2021-22 school year will open in December 2020. We will update the website as soon as we have updated information. 
The vast majority of our students attend their neighborhood high school. Students are assigned to their home school based on the location of their residence (use the Attendance Street Search to find your home school). Students with specialized services typically are assigned to the school that houses the program that is best suited to meeting the needs of the student, irrespective of the location of the student’s residence. Under the district’s Open Enrollment policy, the board annually reviews school capacity and determines the number of spaces available for intradistrict transfer.
At this time, we do not know if there will be space at Mountain View High School or Los Altos High School. We will update this page as soon as school capacity is determined.
