Tuition-Free Charter School Application (grades K-6)
As a public charter school in Oregon our children enter the school through a lottery process. We are accepting applications for grades K-6 for the 2020/21 school year. In the Bend La Pine district, families can apply to one Choice Option School as well as Desert Sky Montessori. All applications are put into the lottery and names are drawn to fill the spaces and to make a waitlist. Once the lottery is completed and an opening occurs the first name on the waitlist is offered. Siblings of Desert Sky Montessori students are given priority. The lottery application deadline is March 20th at 3pm. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
Tuition-based Preschool Application (ages 3-6)
We are currently accepting applications for our private, tuition-based preschool program. Acceptance into the preschool does not guarantee entry into the lottery-based public elementary school program.
