Our program offers:

  • College-preparatory classes 

  • Music, Dance, and Theater 

  • No inter-or-intradistrict transfer requirements

  • Individualized Education Program

  • Inclusive education program

  • Smaller class sizes

  • Credentialed teachers

Application Deadline and Lottery

If the number of students applying for admission exceeds openings available, entrance will be determined by a public random lottery. To be eligible for selection in the lottery, your application must be complete, accurate, and received by 12:59 p.m. on February 27th, 2020. The lottery will be held on March 25th, 2020 on-site. If a lottery is not needed because space is available for all applicants, students will be accepted until the school reaches capacity, at which point a waitlist will be created.

All applications received after February 27, 2020, will be offered enrollment (if space is available) or added to the waitlist. 

Open Enrollment Dates: 2/13/2020 - 2/27/2020

Grade Level Placement 

As a result of legislation passed in September 2010, children will be admitted into a Kindergarten program at the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year if they will have their 5th birthday on or before September 1.


Students who will have their birthday between September 2 and December 2 will be admitted to Transitional Kindergarten.
