Students are given a preference in the lottery if they are an English Language Learner living in the Community School District in which our school is located—District 6. Applying siblings of students enrolled in Inwood Academy are also given preference for a seat. We fill all open seats in every grade although most open seats are in the fifth and ninth grades.
