Lowell 10th-12th Grade Application Process
The Lowell application process for grades 10-12 for the 2017-2018 school year begins on May 1, 2017. Applications will be available at that time at the Educational Placement Center, at all SFUSD high schools, or on the district’s website. The application must be submitted in person by the parent or legal guardian between May 1 and June 16, 2017. Applications submitted after the June deadline or those received by mail or fax will not be considered.
To qualify for Lowell admission, the applicant must take four of the five academic subjects for each semester of high school – English, Laboratory Sciences, Social Studies, Mathematics and Foreign Language as reflected in an official transcript. No more than one course from each of the five academic subject areas will be considered. Courses completed in summer school are not acceptable.
Current SFUSD students need not submit transcripts. Applicants who are not currently attending a San Francisco public school or who are attending a SFUSD Charter School are responsible for requesting their official transcripts from their current schools for submission to the Educational Placement Center by July 1st, 2017. Transcripts do not need to be included with the application, but may be submitted separately by the July 1st deadline. Transcripts must arrive sealed to be considered official and may be mailed directly from the applicant’s current school.
Enrollment into grades 10-12 are dependent upon available capacity at the school. Students who meet eligibility requirements for admission will be sent an assignment offer to Lowell no later than July 21. There is no waiting pool for admission.
Admission to Lowell and Ruth Asawa SOTA is limited to students who reside in San Francisco only. Residents who subsequently move out of district will not be allowed an interdistrict permit to continue.
