The enrollment lottery for EAS is conducted by Lake Washington School District (LWSD) and includes students whose completed applications have been received at EAS by the district-designated application deadline. Applications turned in after the application deadline will not be included in the lottery. The lottery date is set by LWSD and will be shown in the Announcement section on the homepage of the EAS website.
Randomly determined lottery numbers will be 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 wait list.
Acceptance and Wait List letters will be sent to all applicants upon completion of the lottery. Students accepted must attend a school tour with his/her parent(s) and complete and submit all EAS registration documents by the district-designated acceptance date to retain their lottery placement. Failure to complete all steps in the registration process will result in the student forfeiting his/her placement.
Wait listed students will be notified in lottery number order if an opening occurs. Wait listed students should enroll at their local neighborhood school as it is not possible for us to determine if or when an opening might occur.
