Necessary Forms

  1. Completed 2017-2018 Portland Village School Admissions Application

  2. Two proofs of residency (utility bill, bank statement, etc.)

  3. Proof of birthdate (copy of state issued birth certificate or passport)

Hard copies of the Application are also available by visiting our school. Once you have completed and mailed the necessary forms listed above, you have applied to enroll your child(ren) at the Portland Village School.

Lottery

Priority admission is given only to siblings of currently enrolled students followed by all student applications within the Portland Public School District. If we receive more applications during our first phase of admission than we have spaces available in any given grade, state law requires us to conduct a lottery to determine admission.

Students who reside out of the Portland Public Schools district will be placed on the waiting list after all in-district applicants have been placed in the lottery.

Waiting List

The lottery process determines the initial order of placement of the waiting list. Students applying after the deadline in April, will be added to the waiting list in the order by which applications are received. We will maintain our waiting list throughout the school year, offering admission as spaces become available. The waiting list does not carry over to the next school year; if a space is not offered, an applicant must re-apply for the next school year.
