Admission is by random lottery, with priority given to siblings and applicants who live in our school district (School District 1). The application deadline for inclusion in the 2014-15 school year lotteries was April 1, 2014. We are still accepting applications for Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade for both Manhattan Charter School and Manhattan Charter School 2 for inclusion on our waitlist.
