Each year Palouse Prairie School of Expeditionary Learning (PPSEL) has a limited number of openings for new students. State law requires us to conduct an annual lottery with preference given in the following order:
1. Returning PPSEL students
2. Children of founders and full-time staff (max of 10%)
3. Siblings of enrolled students
4. Students living in the Moscow School District attendance area
5. All other students
Each year, our Lottery is held on the last Saturday of March and is for students entering kindergarten through 8th grade. Applications for the lottery will be accepted up to 24 hours prior to the lottery. Offers of enrollment for the next school year will be made within 7 days after the lottery.
Applications for the 2013-2014 Lottery are available in the school's Main office as well as online here:
Please use one form for each child. Mail, fax or hand-deliver applications to Palouse Prairie School, 1500 Levick St., Moscow, ID 83843, or fax (208) 882.3689. We are not permitted to accept Lottery applications submitted via email.
To see if there are openings in your child’s grade for the current school year, please contact the main office at

Palouse Prairie School of Expeditionary Learning does not discriminate on the basis or race, religion, national or ethnic origin, homelessness, or sexual orientation in its educational and admissions policies and affords to all students the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available at the school.
Students not selected for an enrollment seat are placed on our waiting list, and families are contacted as soon as space becomes available.
Students whose applications are received after the lottery date are seated in their grade level if space is available or placed at the bottom of that grade's waiting list. The waiting list does not carry over from year to year, and a new application form must be completed for a child to be included in the following year's lottery.
