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, Highline Virtual Academy, Maritime High School, 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.
See the list of students selected starting in the 2021-22 school year. This list includes students who are waitlisted in the order their names were drawn in the lottery.
