Lincoln Magnet School 2012 - 2013 Lottery

Lincoln Magnet School 2011 - 2012 Lottery was held on
Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Lincoln Magnet School had 366 applications for the 2012 - 2013 school year. While we are pleased that so many people are interested in attending LMS, it is difficult to turn away so many applicants. Parents who receive a letter of acceptance are asked to return the response form by December 9th . If parents choose to decline, we can offer their spot to the next person on the waiting list.

We have 115 seats for the 2012 - 2013 school year. Siblings claimed 24 seats, leaving 91 seats. There are also applications to be added to the waiting lists for 7th and 8th grade for next year.

Parents who receive a letter stating that they are on the waiting list please be patient. We do not give out "exact standings" on the waiting list, because if there are no declines, there is no movement on the waiting list.

Should an opening become available, the next student on the waitlist will be notified by phone immediately. At that time, the family will have the opportunity to accept or decline our invitation.

Thank you for your interest in Lincoln Magnet School.
