Application process

How Optional Attendance Works

Hawthorne II Bilingual Alternative is an Optional Attendance School. That means it does not have direct acceptance for students who live in the school area. Anyone interested in the school needs to submit an online application form.

The spots* for next year are given based on a lottery system—numbers are drawn at random, and those picked receive an acceptance, and others are placed on a waiting list.
