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 2021-2022 school year. In the Bend La Pine district, families can apply to one Choice Option Magnet 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. If you would like to be added to the lottery list, please fill out the application below and send it to us. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
