Once the lottery is completed, and all available seats have been filled a waiting list is generated and kept on file for that school year. If a seat becomes available, OWNCS will accept students from the waiting list. The Admissions Office will contact 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.
