Students Selected: Schools of Choice

A lottery was held on March 1 to select students for our secondary schools that require an application or a program transfer. This includes CHOICE Academy, Big Picture Schools, Raisbeck Aviation High School (RAHS) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) program offered at Mount Rainier High School (MRHS).

When there are more applicants than can be admitted, students are selected by lottery from the pool of eligible candidates. To be eligible, students submitted a completed application by January 31.

The admissions process is designed to accommodate the growing number of applications while maintaining each school's high-quality educational program.

CHOICE Academy

See the list of students selected to attend CHOICE Academy starting in the 2019-20 school year. This list includes students who are waitlisted in the order their names were drawn in the lottery. 

If a student who received a seat at CHOICE Academy through the lottery process chooses not to attend CHOICE Academy, that seat will be filled from the appropriate waitlist.

Big Picture Schools

See the list of students selected to attend Big Picture starting in the 2019-20 school year. This list includes students who are waitlisted in the order their names were drawn in the lottery.

If a student who received a seat at Big Picture through the lottery process chooses not to attend Big Picture, that seat will be filled from the appropriate waitlist.

Raisbeck Aviation High School

See the list of students selected to attend RAHS starting in the 2019-20 school year. This list also includes students who are waitlisted in the order their names were drawn in the lottery.

If a student who received a seat at RAHS through the lottery process chooses not to attend RAHS, that seat will be filled from the appropriate waitlist. For example, if a Highline resident chooses not to attend RAHS, that seat will be filled by a student from the Highline waitlist; a Seattle seat will be filled from the Seattle waitlist; an ‘other district’ seat will be filled from the ‘other district’ waitlist. 

International Baccalaureate at MRHS

See a list of students selected to participate in the IB program at MRHS starting in the 2019-20 school year. This list includes students who are waitlisted in the order their names were drawn in the lottery.
