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. The 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.
All prospective parents are required to fill out an online application and are encouraged to attend a school tour (listed below) to be entered for the lottery.
A supervised, public lottery will be held on Thursday, February 15, 2024, at 2:00p.m. to determine placement in classes and rankings on the waiting list.
Parents may continue to submit applications after the lottery date to be added to the waitlist.
Admission preferences in the case of a public random drawing shall be given to the following students in the following order:
First priority for admission will be given to siblings of students admitted to or attending the Museum School, and children of the Museum School’s employees and Board members.
Second priority will be for students who attend or reside within the attendance area of Florence Elementary School. Museum School is located within the Florence Elementary attendance area.
Third priority will be for students who reside in the boundaries of the District.
Please note that Senate Bill 277 now requires that all students entering Kindergarten and 7th grade have all required immunizations before the start of the school year. There will be no new waivers for personal beliefs. For more information on the changes, please visit the Shots for School website.
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. unless otherwise noted. There is no need to sign up to attend a tour.
Pick the date that works best for you and sign-in when attending a tour.
