Public Random Drawing & Enrollment
Q: When will I find out if I received a spot?
A: We will begin to notify families for enrollment spots in April and continue throughout the summer as spots become available.
Q: If I am offered a spot, how long do I have to accept?
A: You will be contacted by phone and email. You will be given 24 hours to accept the spot. Note: if you applied under either the Free and Reduced Lunch Program or Glassell Park Elementary school lottery preference level, validation of information is required prior to being admitted. You will be asked to sign up for an appointment to bring in documents to validate your information.
Q: As spots are being filled, how can I follow up where I am on the waitlist?
A: The waitlist will be updated on the school website on the first Wednesday of each month.
Q: Can I visit the school before enrolling?
A: School tours are held between October – March. If you did not get a chance to join a school tour we will hold several new family orientations prior to the first day of school. This will give you an opportunity to see our school and learn more about our program.
Q: What is the Enrollment Process?
A: Once you accept your spot you will be sent a link to our enrollment site. You have one week to complete your enrollment forms. If you do not have access to the Internet, please contact the front office (323-539-2810) for a hardcopy of the enrollment packet. Once enrolled you will be invited to join us for an important orientation meeting. This parent/guardian only event will give incoming families information about our program, policies, and community building, so that there can be a smooth and informed transition to our school.
Q:If I have two or more children in the lottery do the others get a preference if their sibling gets in?
Elementary school lottery (TK – 5th grades)
A: If your children are in the elementary school lottery we do not offer a sibling preference to families unless the sibling is already enrolled at the school before the lottery.
Q: Middle School Lottery (6th – 8th grades)
A: If you have more then one child applying for middle school and one gets an enrollment spot, the other child(ren) is also eligible for enrollment regardless of their spot on the waitlist.
Q: Applying for multiple lotteries
A: If you have children in both the middle school and elementary school lottery they do not receive sibling preference if one gets in.
