After the admissions lottery, you will be notified of the lottery results by email. If your child has been selected, you have 6 days to accept or decline the seat. If you do not reply within 6 days, the seat will be given to the next child on the waiting list and your child will be moved to the bottom of the waiting list.

We have very involved Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO). There are many opportunities to volunteer at OWNCS.
Once the lottery is completed, and all available seats have been filled a waiting list is generated and kept until December 31, 2020. If a seat becomes available, OWNCS will accept students from the waiting list. Email notification will be sent to families of applicants accepted from the waiting list.
If you are still interested in sending your child to OWNCS, you must continue to apply each year. Every year we hold a new lottery.
