Growth is not merely a harmonious increase in size, but a transformation.
– Dr. Maria Montessori

Thanks so much to all who enrolled in the 2023 Lottery and a special thanks to those who helped out. We had 164 applicants in total. Within that group, there are 11 languages besides English spoken, and the students hail from 25 different towns.

This year’s Lottery Official was June Trisciani. June is a highly engaged NH citizen who lends her time and energy to various boards and commissions. She currently serves as Alderman At-Large in Manchester, and owns her own residential and commercial interior design firm. The Lottery was staffed by our Executive Director, Project Manager, and one of our Special Educators.

The Lottery was held via Zoom (during the Nor’easter!); each team member worked in separate places, and our guests joined from their homes.

We used a randomizing number selecting app to ‘pull’ the lottery numbers of each family who enrolled in the 2023 Lottery at our March 14th event. As per our Lottery Procedures, those who were awarded a spot in the Lottery were notified once the event was completed; those who did not receive a spot, will receive written notification of their child’s enrollment status on the wait list in the days following the Lottery.

The Lottery generated a wait list at every grade. The Kindergarten wait list for next year is a new wait list. All other wait lists generated by this year’s Lottery, will be positioned below the existing wait lists generated during previous lotteries. Please note, those on the wait list are now in our system, and need not apply in future lotteries with the same child.

Below are photographs of the results of this year’s Lottery:

Currently, there are no available spots in grades 1-6 for the 2023/24 School Year, so the 2023 Lottery generated wait lists at each of those grades, which now live below the existing wait lists for these grades (i.e. wait lists generated in lotteries from previous years). Please be aware that spots can open at any time during the year, including over the summer. Here are the results from the 2023 Lottery for our Lower and Upper Elementary Programs – Grades 1-6:
