Frequently asked Questions


Q: "Is there a lottery to get into ILCS?"

A: Yes, our schools are typically full. In order to enroll for the following year, parents must complete a form to be placed into a random and public lottery system. *ILCS does not discriminate based on ethnicity, race, origin, religion or gender. All enrollment is done in a fair and random manner and is not dependent on student ability level.


Q: "Do I need to attend the lottery to get a spot?"

A: No, we will notify you if your student gets a spot.


Q: "What do I do if I missed the deadline for the lottery sign up?"

A: If a student is not enrolled in the lottery, parents may also fill out the waitlist form listed below for entrance, but their enrollment will come after lottery student enrollment. If you wish to be placed on our waitlist for this current school year please click here to do so. These students are placed into classes after the lottery placements in order of the date the form was completed. 


Q: "What are other options for my student if we didn't get into ILCS?"

A: We offer an Independent Study Program (homeschool). If you wish to sign up for our Independent Study program (homeschool) for next year, click here.


Q: "What are the residential district boundaries for my child to have resident priority?

A: Here is the Yucaipa/Calimesa school district boundaries map. Please call the office if you have any questions.


Q: "If my child got a TK (transitional kindergarten) spot, are they automatically in kindergarten the following school year?"

A: No, unfortunately, every TK student MUST re-enter the lottery for kindergarten. Here is the TK Policy.

ILCS shall not discriminate against any pupil on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or disability.
