 Interested in a Choice School?

Choice school applications open now through December 2 at 11:59 p.m.Lake Washington School District offers Choice schools and programs for students. Choice schools and programs are optional schooling alternatives, created to meet specific needs and interests.

They are designed to be smaller and use innovative approaches to education that are different from traditional public schools. Choice schools and programs are often housed within an existing school or on the same campus as another school.

See these flyers for more details on the options by grade level:
Learn more about the process and curriculum at each school on the Choice schools webpage: https://www.lwsd.org/schools/choice-schools.

Each school lists information about how to attend or watch their information session.

Applications for choice schools opened Tuesday, November 1, and will close on Friday, December 2 at 11:59 p.m.
