Thank you for your interest in Stella Schola Middle School! We would love to have your child at our school for the next three years! Read about how to apply to Stella Schola Middle School below.

All 5th grade students residing within the Lake Washington School District boundaries are welcome to apply to Stella Schola Middle School. The lottery is held during the student's 5th grade year. Acceptance is determined solely by the district run lottery system so that all who apply have an equal chance to attend. Those who are not chosen will be put on a wait list for a three year period. Maximum enrollment at Stella Schola is 90 students. While the lottery is conducted for incoming 6th graders, older students may apply also, but will be placed on the waitlist behind the original lottery waitlist conducted in the 5th grade.
