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