Lottery Information

The enrollment lottery for EAS is conducted by Lake Washington School District (LWSD) and includes students whose completed applications have been received by the district-designated application deadline. The lottery date is set by LWSD.

Computer generated lottery numbers will be randomly assigned to all applicants. Incoming 6th graders will be placed in the school by lottery number order until all vacancies are filled. Students whose lottery numbers exceed the maximum enrollment number will be placed on a waitlist.

Acceptance and Waitlist letters will be sent to all applicants upon completion of the lottery. Students who accept placement must attend a school tour with one or both parents as the first step in the registration process. In addition, students accepting placement will be required to complete and submit all EAS registration documents by the school-designated due date. Failure to complete all steps in the registration process will result in the student forfeiting his/her placement.

Waitlisted students will be notified in lottery number order if an opening occurs. Waitlisted students should enroll at their neighborhood middle school as it is not possible for us to determine if or when an opening might occur.
