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 amount 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 to be entered for the lottery.
A supervised, public lottery will be held on Thursday, February 11th at 4:00 pm 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 wait list.
Admission preferences in the case of a public random drawing shall be given to the following students in the following order: the 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. The second priority will be for students who attend or reside within the attendance area of Florence Elementary School, which is where the charter school site is physically located. The 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.
