Transfer Options

Want to attend a different school than the one in your neighborhood?

Lake Washington School District offers three options to parents who are looking for alternatives to their assigned neighborhood school.

Choice Schools

One option is to investigate Choice Schools, which are open to residents from all over the district. Each choice school has an application process. The Choice School section has more information on applying to choice schools, as well as information on each school. Parents must provide transportation for their student who attends a Choice School.

In-District Variance (Transferring schools within Lake Washington School District)

Another option is to receive an approved variance to another school in the Lake Washington School District, known as an In-District Variance. You can apply for an In-District Variance to any school within the district that has been determined to be "Open." Please note that at the Elementary Level, though a school may be identified as "Open," there may be grade levels within the school that are at enrollment capacity and those grade levels may be "Closed." Applications to these schools are not guaranteed acceptance. Refer to the Closed Schools List to determine whether a school you may be interested in is available for an In-District Variance request.

Between District Transfers

Public school students in Washington state may request a transfer from their “home” district, where they reside, to attend school in another public school district, where they do not reside. That is known as an inter-district transfer or out-of-district transfer. Learn more.
