A: Open Enrollment: If you submit an application during the open enrollment period (Aug 1 – Jan 15), your child will be eligible for school Lottery.

A: Lottery: If there are more submitted applications than there are spaces available for your child’s grade, the school will hold a Lottery.  Lotteries are generally held during the second Monday of April. You do not need to attend the Lottery Event for your child to be selected. Students who are selected in the Lottery will be offered a space. After all spaces have been offered, the remaining students not selected will be placed on a waitlist. Waitlisted students will receive offers as spaces become available.
