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 Lake Washington School District students entering 6th grade are welcome to apply to Stella Schola Middle School. Priority is determined solely by a 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 for incoming 6th graders, older students may apply also, but will be admitted on a "space available" basis.
