Mission Valley ROP


ROP classes offer you the opportunity to:

  • Explore career interests
  • Develop job skills
  • Learn skills for jobs to help finance higher education
  • Offer math credit, college credit and job internships in some classes

Before you sign-up to take an ROP class, think about the following:

  • Grades and units will be negatively affected by missed classes
  • Most ROP classes are held off campus for two periods; either periods 1 & 2 or 5 & 6
  • Transportation: Students taking Periods 1 & 2 classes at the ROP center must provide their own transportation to the ROP center.  ROP will provide bus service back to school after both morning and afternoon classes.  Pick up time for bus transportation for the Period 5 & 6 classes from WHS to ROP is 12:30PM.  Due to afternoon bus schedule, students must pack a lunch.  
  • If you have responsibilities in the late afternoon like sports, Adult School classes or a job, it could interfere with afternoon ROP classes that end later than the school day at WHS. Bus transportation back to WHS will mean even later arrival back to campus.
  • Internships:  Transportation is students responsibility if internship at another site is required.
  • If an ROP class is dropped for any reason, you must replace it with another ROP class.
  • View ROP catalog online at Mission Valley ROP Courses 
  • 2 period ROP classes at other locations than WHS during periods 1 & 2 or 5 & 6 only
  • Juniors and seniors can take no more than one 1 period and one 2 period ROP courses per year
  • ROP elective courses are offered to juniors and seniors only (Exceptions:  Pharmacy Clerk classes for seniors only. Freshmen & Sophomores can take Beginning Auto at WHS)


Career Technical Education (CTE) and the Mission Valley Regional Occupation Program (MVROP)

Career Technical Education classes are designed to prepare students for gainful employment in occupations which are needed in California and our community.  They are based on the career desires and needs of students.  The California State Department of Educations definition of CTE is as follows:  Career technical education engages all students in a dynamic and seamless learning experience resulting in their mastery of the career and academic knowledge and skills necessary to become productive, contributing members of society.  For Washington High School, CTE courses are offered primarily for juniors and seniors through the Mission Valley Regional Occupation (ROP) program.  Some of these courses are offered on campus, but the majority are offered at the ROP facility near Kennedy High School on the corner of Stevenson Blvd. and Blacow Road.  Transportation to and from Washington is offered for the afternoon classes at the ROP center.  For more information about Career Technical Education and ROP classes check Mission Valley ROP  or contact Mrs. Wittmer in the WHS College and Career Resource Center at 505-7379 or  The California Department of Education California Career Technical Education has additional information.
