ACCEPTANCE RATE:

Scriber Lake has a very high acceptance rate for students wishing to attend our school. As a school of choice, we encourage all students to consider if our school can best benefit and support them. We want you here! With this in mind, reasons for not being admitted to Scriber Lake are rare. There are only three reasons why a student interested in attending Scriber Lake would not be admitted.

  • Reason 1: The student does not want to attend Scriber Lake.
  • Reason 2: The student has IEP needs that our campus is not equipped to support.
  • Reason 3: The student's enrollment at Scriber would create a significant safety and or mental health disturbance for a currently enrolled student (For example: there is a protection order with a current SLHS student).
