2018-2019 Enrollment:

Syringa Mountain School is a public charter school.  Public charter schools in the State of Idaho follow a state-mandated process for admissions and enrollment (see Idaho Code Statue 33-5205). When demand for enrollment exceeds the number of available spaces public charters must, annually, hold an enrollment lottery.

Registration for the 2018-2019 School year is now open from January 8th – Feb. 15th. The enrollment lottery will be held on Feb. 21st and all families will be notified by Feb. 26th, 2018.

Dear Potential Kindergarten Parents,

In order to accommodate the needs of Kindergarten students/parents, Syringa is offering a range of instructional and extended care options.  In essence, we are offering a morning and afternoon option for instruction.  For working parents who work outside of the home, a 6.75 hr day for their kindergartener may be a necessity and so checking the AM with extended care box gives us information for planning.  For those working parents who have options to work from home, but need some dedicated ‘alone’ time to work from home, the afternoon instructional session may be a good choice.  There will be two lottery drawings for Kindergarten: one for AM and one for PM instruction.  The extended care option is for our planning purposes only.

Read more about the lottery procedure for charter schools.  Open tours of our school are on-going and encouraged!  Please give the school a call (208-806-2880) prior to coming if you are able so we know to expect you!
