All Lake Washington School District students entering 9th grade in September 2019 are welcome to apply and must do so by January 18, 2019. Priority is determined solely by a lottery system so that all who apply have an equal chance to attend. Those who are not chosen will be put on a wait list. While the lottery is for incoming 9th graders, older students may apply also, but will be admitted on a "space available" basis. Above is a list of dates relating to student application procedure to Tesla STEM.

Names not selected will be placed on a wait-list and will be notified when a space opens. While waiting, students should enroll at their local high school, as there is no way to determine if and when an opening will occur. All prospective Tesla STEM families must follow and complete the application process and adhere to all dates and timelines.
