Thank you for your interest in the Museum School. 

We are honored that you may consider us for your child’s educational choice. As a small school, we strive to accommodate as many students as possible. We do receive a large number of applications each year and work with an outside agency to ensure the fairest possible outcome for all applicants. 

Museum School is open to all students, on a space-available basis, and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, age, ancestry, special need, proficiency in the English language or academic achievement.

Charter School Complaint Notice

Charter schools are not allowed to discourage a pupil from enrolling or seeking to enroll in the charter school because the pupil exhibits any characteristics such as students with disabilities, academically low-achieving, English learners, neglected or delinquent, homeless, socially economically disadvantaged, foster youth, or based on nationality, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Charter schools are not allowed to request a pupil’s records before enrollment or encourage a child who is enrolled in a charter school to dis-enroll or transfer to another school. A parent, guardian, or pupil (18 years or older) may file a Charter School Complaint Form to the authorizing entity if they suspect the charter school is in violation of Education Code Section 47605(d)(4). Click here to obtain the Enrollment Complaint Form.

To apply please use the appropriate online application below.
You may still apply for the current school year for any spots that may become available.

Applications accepted after the lottery date will be added to the waitlist.


All tours are scheduled to occur at 9 a.m. There is no need to sign up to attend a tour.
