What is a lottery?

A lottery is a random selection process used to ensure that students have an equal chance of being admitted. A lottery is required if there are more applicants than there are open seats in each class.  

After seats are filled for each class, the lottery will continue to establish waitlist order for the remaining students. Parents will then be notified when a seat opens up.
