LOTTERY AND ENROLLMENT FAQs

Who can apply to The Ivy School?
Children entering first through eighth grades can apply. By State Charter law, we must first serve all students from the district in which we reside (Portland Public School District). Students who reside out of the district but in the state of Oregon will be placed on the waiting list after all in-district applicants have been placed from the lottery. Students who reside outside of Oregon may be eligible to attend The Ivy School by paying tuition, as The Ivy School cannot use state funds to subsidize education for out of state resident students. Children applying for first grade need to be 6 years old by September 1st.
Is Ivy one of the choices in the Portland Public School (PPS) lottery?
No. The Ivy School lottery is separate from the PPS lottery, so we are NOT one of your choices in the PPS lottery.
How many spaces do you have each year?
Generally speaking, most spaces are available at the 1st grade level since that is the entry point for the Ivy School. The specific number varies year to year depending on how many siblings of current students are entering the incoming 1st grade class. Grades 2nd through 8th may or may not have openings, depending on matriculation of current students and siblings of currently enrolled students interest in enrolling. We encourage you to complete a Post Lottery Wait List Application if you are interested in The Ivy School for 2017-18. 
How do I know my application was received?
Due to the large volume of lottery applications we receive each year, we do not email, call or return calls to confirm receipt of lottery applications. If you would like notification, be sure to enclose a STAMPED, SELF ADDRESSED postcard with your lottery application and we will mail it to you when we receive your application.
When and where is the lottery held? Can I attend?
The 2018-19 lottery will be Friday April 13th, 2018 at 4:00 pm at our Prescott Campus.

Lottery results will be emailed within 10 business days of the lottery.

You are welcome to attend, however you will not know whether your student(s) have been selected until lottery results are e-mailed.

What are my chances of getting a spot?
We will not know the number of applicants until the application deadline. If there are more applicants than spaces available, state law requires Ivy to conduct a lottery. When all grade level openings are filled, we will continue to draw names and put them in the order drawn on the Ivy wait list by grade level. Keep in mind, not everyone that receives a space through the lottery chooses to enroll. Should parents decline placement or move out of the area, the wait list will be activated. We encourage you to complete a lottery application if you are interested in The Ivy School.
If my child is enrolled at Ivy, will his/her siblings get preference in the future?
Yes.  Siblings may apply the following year(s) without applying through the lottery (but please complete the form), as long as they have a sibling currently enrolled.  Siblings are only admitted when there is a space available in the grade they seek.  Should there not be an opening, the sibling will be put on the waiting list.
If I filled out a lottery form last year and was waitlisted, do I need to fill out another form for this year’s lottery?
Yes.  The waiting list does NOT carry over to the next school year.
