Andre Gurrola Rivera, School News Writer

The 2023-2024 admissions lottery to admit new students will be held on Thursday, February 23 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. The lottery will include all prospective students who submitted an application before the December 16th deadline. The lottery is a process where qualified applicants are selected at random to fill available spots in their respective grades. The lottery is for all grades 6-12 but for 6th grade applicants, it is preferred that they come from a low income background and that their parents have not graduated from a four-year university. For applicants for other grades, preference is given to siblings enrolled in the school. The lottery will also be filling empty spots from students who have left from the grades 7-12, leaving students excited to see the new faces they will see next year. “I am always really excited to see the new students every year because it’s refreshing to see some new faces when you’ve been with the same friends since middle school.” said Issachar Cortez (‘24).
